13 SDN Startups To Keep An Eye On In 2013


Insiemi

Will we get more details on Insiemi this year, or will Cisco continue to be as cagey as it was throughout 2012?

Insiemi is an SDN startup that appears to be a Cisco "spin-in," meaning it is a company to which Cisco provides startup money and top-flight engineering talent and then plans to acquire after product is fully baked. Cisco hasn't offered many more details on Insiemi's products apart from vague discussion of programmable networking, but with Cisco's role in the evolving SDN ecosystem proving to be a major topic for 2013, perhaps more is coming.
