ONUG Spring 2022 is in the books. What a great event! Being able to meet with networking experts in person feels like such a treat after everything we’ve been through. The best thing about ONUG events is the cornucopia of informational sessions. Even if you were there, you probably didn’t get to go to all the sessions you wanted to attend. I know our team didn’t!
In case you missed them, I wanted to point to two sessions that we hosted; both of which received very positive feedback from on-site attendees.
Our Senior Director of Product and UX, Natale Ruello, hosted a Proof of Concept session demonstrating how our customers use Forward Enterprise to verify their security posture in hybrid multi-cloud environments.
Additionally, Joshua Matheus, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, gave a keynote presentation highlighting how Goldman has reduced application delivery time to under an hour and how his team is using a digital twin to make their network more reliable, agile, and secure.
In the meantime, stay current with our platform via our BrightTALK Channel with new educational sessions every month.
Telecom network operators are investing in new software and hardware to create faster, more complex networks, but with added complexity comes added vulnerability. Software that automates network management and reduces downtime is extremely valuable to operators, and as networks become more heterogeneous, hardware-agnostic software is generating strong interest across industries.
Those are the issues driving Forward Networks, a Silicon Valley startup founded to help telecom operators cut costs and reduce risk. Conceived by a foursome of Stanford PhD.s, Forward Networks creates algorithms to help operators see and understand the behavior of enterprise networks. The company just announced a $35 million Series C funding round led by Goldman Sachs.
