Fiber Mountain Announces CrossCage Plus at ITEXPO

January 27, 2016

Technology is complex, period. The data center of today is not your father’s data center, innovation in software defined networking (SDN) has made changes that appear extremely complex and technical can be easily implemented with a few mouse clicks. This innovation is on display this week at ITEXPO, taking place at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. Claiming the spotlight is a bevy of releases and announcements touting cutting edge development and transformation.

We’ve all heard the phrase, “I want what I want, when I want it,” well Fiber Mountain is bringing this type of mindset to the data center. Its newest release, the CrossCage Plus is the first automated Meet-Me-Room cross connect multi tenant data center. Founder and CEO at Fiber Mountain, H.M. Raza told TMC, “The beauty of CrossCage Plus is instead of a customer requesting it and all the time involved in manually provisioning, the customer  goes to a Web portal, makes selection of carrier via dropdown, the system checks itself and responds.” Once the response is received, the system alerts you via blinking light where to plug in. As he put it, it is “true on-demand.”

CrossCage Plus provides provisioning agility and “Connection-On-Demand” services—which were never possible before.

Raza noted  the data center of today (and tomorrow) needs, “an infrastructure that is capable of replacing the function of humans and time with an  SDN infrastructure.” Because the process is automated; the human element isno longer necessary. Raza explained, “Since we can discover the network accurately, human error is removed.”

Innovation in SDN is transforming network infrastructure to the point of  no return. Software adds a level of accuracy and agility like never before, and this is only the beginning. Stay tuned, I have no doubt there is more to come in this arena. And, knowing the team at Fiber Mountain makes me think they a few more tricks up their sleeve.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
