Re: Spiderdead Sam101

SpiderCloud is doing great.  I left knowing that the company is doing extremely well so that I could take on a new opportunitiy (which is near and dear to my interests for the coming years).

Your profile was created 9/25. It would be interesting for us all to know your company affiliation.

Spiderdead Does Spidercloud really sell anything? The few operators who have bought some radio nodes don't really roll out anything to my knowledge and apart from some announcements on their web site last spring, no new customers have been announced. And what about the Cisco partnership? Has it really resulted in any business? Haven't seen anything relevant yet. Cisco has spent money on Altiostar and Ubiquisys with poor results. Spidercloud is a risky investment that I don't think they're willing to take. As for HP, they recently partnered up with Ericsson on the small cell side. That solution includes both picos and "dots" which means they scale much better than Spidercloud both up and down and of course come with better MNO relations due to existing footprint. Huawei also has a good indoor portfolio and NSN/ALU might have something on the way.

Spidercloud had an interesting solution two years ago. Now they are overtaken by the macro vendors and at the same time there are also new kids on the block (like Luminate) who have much more interesting solutions and are far better acquisition targets in my opinion.

I think the train has left the station for Spidercloud. That's likely also why their CMO, Ronny Haraldsvik, left the building in July.

Cisco vHetNet Product feedback. What Cisco has put together with their vHetNet product range is amazing! It was launched in Mobile World this year but early feedback from clients has been fantastic.  "click to deploy" really does work.

Cisco vHetNet dramatically simplifies the ordering to production process, enabling mobile operators to operate vHetNet pods that can support scalability to as few as 1000 small cells. The "click to deploy" capability automates the build, verification and configuration of all small cell components, with no user intervention.

Configuration errors that would normally take significant time to debug and resolve are eradicated.  Congrats to Cisco for helping speed up the Small Cell cause.

Operator Joe.

Hewlett-Packard With the recent purchase of Aruba and the close relationship between Aruba and Luminate Wireless I would think that Luminate and not SpiderCloud would be a much more likely target for HP.

CommScope CommScope would've been a possible name in the frame but I don't think they're ready to spend the money required.
