20 Most Promising Networking Solution Providers - 2015

Virtualization has become the life blood of the networking industry today. With the advent of technologies such as software-defined networking and network function virtualization, the black box paradigm or the legacy networking model has been shattered. In the past, the industry witnessed networking technology such as Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), which eventually gave way to Ethernet, the predominant network of choice. This provided opportunities to refresh infrastructures and create new networking paradigms. Today, we see a myriad of proprietary technologies, competing for the next generation networking models that are no longer static, opaque or rigid.

 Ushering a new way of thinking and unlocking the possibilities, customers are increasingly demanding for automation from the network solution providers. The key requirement is an agile network controlled from a single source. Visibility into the network has also become a must-have in the networking spectrum, providing realtime information about the events befalling inside the networks.
