Cyan delivers network virtualization solutions for multi-vendor, multi-layer control, and a complete visibility to network operators for an effective and profitable service delivery. Based in Petaluma, CA, the firm offers several solutions that enable its customers to scale networks, reduce cost, and simplify network operations. “Our Blue Planet SDN Software, Z-Series Packet-Optical Platform, and N-Series Hyperscale platform allow customers to develop complete software-defined, open, and scalable networks,” explains Floyd.
Being a specialist in providing SDN solutions, the Blue Planet platform provides automatic SDN control and multiple vendor management quality, which is built to enhance network and WAN operations. “The platform offers a set of applications, such as, Planet Orchestrate and Planet Operate that is developed to manage and control both physical network elements and virtual SDN and NFV services,” says Floyd. Leveraging these applications can provide advanced visualization of network layers and elements, enabling users to have a better understanding of the network.
Cyan’s unique ability to provide a multi-layer visualization of the end-to-end network connections differentiates it from its competitors. Highlighting the uniqueness of the company, Floyd says, “Our CA-based Blue Orbit Lab is the key component of our SDN and NFV ecosystem,” says Floyd. Blue Orbit ecosystem helps in minimizing the interoperability risks for network operators and increasing the production deployments for multiple vendors.
