10 Hot Networking Companies With IPO Potential


Vyatta

Founded: 2005

How about that Vyatta, which has been earning plaudits for its virtualized, open source networking platform almost since the day it was unveiled? Earlier this week, Vyatta launched Version 6.0 of that OS, expanding the feature set to include Vyatta Remote Access API platform and a range of additional services offerings. The company has built an impressive channel on the premise that as an open source alternative, it can provide all the functionality of a Cisco OS for a fraction of the cost. The message seems to resonating in the venture capital community, too, from which Vyatta has seen consistent Series B and Series C funding rounds a number of times in the past few years.
