Network technology startups offer solutions to improve the efficiency, flexibility, security, and reliability of network infrastructure and systems.
Last year, networking technology startups — companies building tech to make computers and data networks faster and more efficient — reached an all-time deal and funding high. While the sector is on pace to see fewer deals and dollars in 2017, investment activity remains strong.
While software-defined networking (SDN) has emerged as the primary solution for increased network functionality, other networking technologies such as satellite networks and network switches have had breakthroughs in recent years.
Using CB Insights data, we identified more than 85 private network technology startups and mapped them across 9 main categories, from software-defined networking to network monitoring to satellite networking, and more. We included companies that raised disclosed equity funding in the last 24 months.
