Many Thanks from Network Utility Force for Another Great Year

Monday, December 30, 2013

With 2014 about 24 hours away, we would like to thank our customers, partners, colleagues, friends and family for their support, as 2013, only our second year in business was another great one for us. Below are just a few of our highlights from this past year:
  • built one of the largest municipal WiFi deployments in the Southeast, and one of the nation's first with native IPv6;
  • architected, designed and began deployment of the network infrastructure for new, high-demand datacenters at a Fortune 1000 records storage provider;
  • selected as NANOG's professional services partner;
  • had several of our employees and contractors become certified IPv6 network engineers and trainers;
  • provided advanced professional services for network and security needs of scores of BTOPs, national enterprises, government entities and regional services providers;
  • verticals we served included: banking, cable, education, energy, government, healthcare, law enforcement, legal, retail, software, technology, telecommunications, transportation, travel and utilities;
  • participated in over 20 industry related events, many of which we were invited to present; 
  • our revenues continued to grow in 2013, surpassing our 2012 revenue; and,
  • the little league baseball team we sponsored won the championship for their age group.
Again, thank you for your continued support, and all the best in the new year,

The Network Utility Force team

Network Utility Force joins Open-IX

Open-IX
We've been helping companies interconnect to exchange Internet traffic for many years, and we're currently involved with several peering projects for our clients. Unfortunately, selecting Internet exchanges can be challenging, due in part to the lack of openness about pricing and terms, and the lack of uniform specifications for data transfer or physical connectivity, among other shortcomings.

However, Open-IX, a standards community for the improvement of Internet Exchange Points (IXP) and data center interconnection aims to resolve these limitations by creating neutral, member-governed exchanges which will allow entities to trade traffic, and thus, improve interconnection by reducing costs, among other aspects. Not only do we welcome and support the initiatives of Open-IX, but we have become a member to help facilitate this endeavor.
