No Fire on This Mountain: Fiber Mountain Named 'Cool Vendor'

June 07, 2016

Over the past few years it is growing abundantly clear the future of infrastructure will be virtualized. As Communication Service Providers (CSPs) add new and innovative offerings, the “bones” of the network are evolving as well. From the IoT and mobile to the data center and SDN the network is transforming, and recently Gartner plucked a few standouts that illustrate today’s bleeding edge in naming its “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Infrastructure” for 2016.

Of the list of five companies, Fiber Mountain – The Glass Core Company – jumps of the page. Why? Because as the great Muhammad Ali once said, “The man who has no imagination has no wings,” Fiber Mountain is flying high.

 “We are honored to be considered a Cool Vendor in this category by Gartner and see it as recognition of our mission to simplify network infrastructure through Fiber Mountain’s Glass Core.” said M. H. Raza, CEO of Fiber Mountain. “Our Glass Core technology is a virtual connectivity fabric that enables a dynamic layer 1 network which when used in conjunction with switch and router networks provide the highest level of network control.”

The network transformation firm has carried an SDN focus for some time, revolutionized interconnect with its award-winning CrossCage Plus and is empowering the network with the power of virtualization ushering in a new era of flexibility, performance, efficiency as well as cost and time savings in the data center.

 “Cool Vendors are those that have caught Gartner's interest during the past year because they offer innovative and/or high-potential technologies or solutions. In this report, we highlight five vendors whose products have the potential to impact CSP infrastructure — such as cloud-based offerings — with newer SD-WAN control for elastic network services, vCPE service orchestration and emerging MEC solutions, as well as innovative MVNO offerings.”

As the great poet Ladies Love Cool James once noted, “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.” Fiber Mountain has pioneered the software-defined transformation. The Glass Core Company is trailblazing a path to the network of tomorrow and beyond.

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.
