Since Aria Networks was founded there has been a series of milestones that the management team are very proud of – highlights include receiving first round funding from leading venture fund Seraphim Capital, and winning a UK Business Angels Association award for ‘most disruptive technology’. The business continues to go from strength to strength and this year sees the company taking a number of significant steps forward with regards to its own infrastructure commitments –opening its first USA office, and in the coming weeks moving to establish its UK headquarters in Bath.
Totally committed to establishing a global brand and with increased business momentum in the UK and Europe specifically, Aria Networks’ decision to now build its presence from Bath is further testament that the company is here for the long term. Bath offers a rich heritage blended subtly with a fresher cosmopolitan feel and, alongside excellent road, rail and air connections there is an instant network of information technology companies in that area to knowledge share with and, as a result, an available labour force that can support future growth.
The decision to relocate the UK HQ follows closely behind the recent opening of the West Coast USA headquarters, in Santa Clara, which supports our customers in the San Francisco Bay area and will help drive the company’s planned expansion across the US.
Importantly, whilst Aria Networks is committed to building its global presence overall, it should be noted that geographic expansion is in fact just a small element of the longer term business strategy as the business will still continue to service many clients through the highly successful online app store.
From a technology perspective, research and development remains focused in key areas which include lifecycle service orchestration and the OSS for future SDN and NFV network architecture. The business will also remain open to new opportunities, endeavouring to expand by extending its reach into new market segments, with both fixed and mobile carriers, ISP’s and large Enterprise organisations through Software-as-a-Service apps, customised OSS solutions and OEM based orchestration.
With organisations increasingly under pressure to improve network speeds and ensure a substantial return from any new technology investments Aria Networks has carved a market niche for itself and become an attractive business partner as it offers the only vendor independent capacity planning and orchestration software to work across all infrastructures, technologies and networks. As a result the company is seeing adoption levels of its technology accelerate quickly, so plans are being implemented now to ensure it can build quickly upon on the solid foundations already in place.
