“In the second quarter we remained focused on our key initiatives, announced several new customer and partner collaborations and launched Planet Orchestrate, a significant new addition to our Blue Planet SDN and NFV platform,” said Mark Floyd, Cyan’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are pleased with our execution this quarter and with the momentum we see in the market.

“Service providers continue to advance their initiatives to transform their networks with SDN and NFV technologies. With the Blue Planet Platform, we believe Cyan is well positioned in the market and has a unique, first mover advantage in helping customers orchestrate both network and virtualized resources across multi-domain, multi-vendor networks," continued Floyd.

Second Quarter Highlights

Launched Planet Orchestrate – The industry’s first orchestration application that integrates Cloud Services, NFV, and WAN in multi-vendor and multi-domain networks. Unlike other siloed solutions on the market, Planet Orchestrate, an application for Cyan’s Blue Planet SDN Platform, combines the power of WAN service creation and automation with the orchestration of virtual resources – creating a software-defined engine for revenue generation in carrier networks.

  • Certes, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, and Fortinet, a global leader in high-performance network security, joined Blue Orbit, an ecosystem of partners focused on delivering real-world, multi-vendor SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV) applications.

  • With Blue Orbit partners Certes, Fortinet and RAD, Cyan demonstrated how Blue Planet can orchestrate multi-vendor distributed NFV in an official ETSI proof of concept (PoC) sponsored by Tier 1 service provider -- CenturyLink.

  • Collaborated with Telefónica and Red Hat to develop a deterministic NFV architecture to support the intelligent placement of virtualized network functions (VNFs). Cyan is delivering the NFV orchestrator that will make use of OpenStack enhancements developed by Red Hat in close collaboration with Telefónica.
