Gina Narcisi

Fueled by the pandemic and the need for digitalization, businesses are adopting new technologies more rapidly than ever before to address the work-from-home trend, smaller office settings and demand for cloud applications. Here are 10 of the coolest new networking offerings that gained traction in 2021.

Alkira Cloud Services Exchange

Cloud Networking-as-a-Service startup Alkira emerged from stealth mode in 2020 and with it came its 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. Alkira CSX offers cloud networking in an as-a-service format with the flexibility to turn services on and off as the business requires, with no up-front Capex purchase necessary.

The San Jose, Calif.-based company in November said it would be working with Exclusive Networks to make Alkira CSX available through Exclusive’s partners in 40 countries across five continents.
