10 Hot Networking Startup Companies To Watch In 2023
The hottest networking startups of 2023 are focused on the edge, private 5G and cellular networking, and SASE.
Multi-cloud networking upstart Alkira emerged from stealth mode in 2020 with its consumption-based Cloud Services Exchange (CSX), a unified, on-demand offering that lets cloud architects and network engineers build and deploy a multi-cloud network in minutes. Since then, the company has unveiled a collaboration with the Microsoft for Startups program, as well as a deeper relationship with Amazon Web Services, whose Marketplace includes Alkira CSX.
Alkira in 2022 launched Cloud Area Networking, a next-generation networking offering. The offering is a full stack, edge-to-cloud enterprise-grade network with built-in routing and network services, according to the company. Alkira is going to market primarily though channel partners. The company‘s latest funding round in August 2022 raised Alkira’s total funding to $76 million.
