OTTAWA and BOSTON, June 9, 2015
BTI Systems, a market-leading provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content and service providers around the world, today announced that it has been named Private Company of the Year in Light Reading’s prestigious Leading Lights awards program. The awards celebrate top companies and their executives for their outstanding achievements in next-generation communications technology, applications and services, and were presented last evening in advance of Light Reading’s second annual Big Telecom Event (BTE).
The Leading Lights awards are judged by Light Reading editors and Heavy Reading analysts. BTI was recognized for its strong customer base; rapid growth in market share in the metro cloud space; impressive investor backing; and software-defined Intelligent Cloud Connect platform, which uniquely converges MPLS routing functions with a full featured 100G-optimized optical transport platform, and offers a path to embedded virtualized network functions.
“We are extremely honored to win this year’s Private Company of the Year award, and thank Light Reading and Heavy Reading’s judges for recognizing our strong position in the Metro Cloud and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) markets that we pioneered and continue to lead,” said BTI’s Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Sally Bament. “Working closely with carriers, content providers and colocation providers has enabled us to drive innovative solutions that increase network capacity, improve network efficiencies, simplify operations and drive down costs. With the explosive growth of metro traffic volumes, we look forward to continuing to create solutions that our customers need to advance new services and meet unprecedented bandwidth demand. This award certainly acknowledges our market strengths.”
