Light Reading Names Cyan Private Company of the Year

Cyan Receives Annual Award Given to Game-Changing Companies and Products

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Cyan announced today that it has been named "private company of the year" by Light Reading at its annual Leading Lights event in New York. The Leading Lights program recognizes innovative companies and products that portend the direction of technology advances. Cyan was honored with the Leading Lights award as a result of its rapid worldwide growth and its innovative combination of software-defined networking (SDN) and packet-optical transport technologies. This combination has proven to help service providers scale their networks and accelerate service delivery while reducing underlying costs.

According to Eric Clelland, Cyan CMO, "As a key commentator on the telecom and networking industries, Light Reading has a long history of identifying the companies and products that reshape the technology landscape. It is an honor to be recognized as the top non-public company in the industry and for our commitment to helping our operator customers advance service delivery."

Cyan is at the forefront of a strengthening industry trend toward more scalable, more flexible, and less complex networks through greater reliance on software. The recently introduced Cyan Blue Planet SDN system makes major strides toward this vision by opening up previously closed ecosystems and extending the benefits of SDN -- namely network virtualization, reduced capital and operating costs, accelerated service deployment -- to telecom networks based largely on legacy equipment.

Cyan is currently demonstrating Blue Planet at Light Reading's Ethernet Expo conference in New York, along with the company's industry leading Z-Series packet-optical transport platforms (P-OTPs). The highly scalable Z-Series platform delivers up to 2.8 Tbps of capacity for wavelength and packet services.
