NetSocket Wins Red Herring Top 100 North America Award

NetSocket, the first real-time IP service assurance provider, has been named a winner of the 2010 Red Herring 100 North America awards. The awards are given to the most promising private technology companies on the continent, as determined by the editorial team of Red Herring magazine.

“The Red Herring 100 awards are taken very seriously by technology industry executives, investors and strategists,” said Ken Lewis, founder, president and CEO of NetSocket. “Winning this award is a strong validation for NetSocket's radically new approach to assuring the quality, availability and performance of real-time IP services such as VoIP, telepresence, unified communications and business critical services.”

The Red Herring 100 awards are considered among the most prestigious in the industry, with past winners including Google, Salesforce.com, Skype, Yahoo! and YouTube. This year, nearly 1,000 companies were nominated for the North America 2010 award, and 200 finalists were given the opportunity to make in-person presentations to the Red Herring editors.

“We were blown away by the quality of the finalists presenting last week; the initial quantitative and qualitative vetting phases clearly worked,” said Carey Parker, co-founder and vice president of marketing and products for NetSocket. “To come out on top among this stellar group of ventures is both humbling and gratifying. It’s great that Red Herring recognized the value of NetSocket’s vision as well as our success in reaching critical milestones we’ve established for ourselves.”

NetSocket accepted its award at the Red Herring North America 2010 conference in San Diego at a ceremony June 24 featuring the CEOs and founders of the award-winning companies.

NetSocket offers groundbreaking solution for voice & video services

NetSocket solves real-world, real-time IP service challenges with software products based on its patented Session2Topology™ correlation engine. Analogous to the Google Maps™ service, the Session2Topology technology creates a multi-layer “information mashup” that correlates data from previously disparate network sources into a cohesive, real-time service picture, significantly reducing operational expense and improving end-user satisfaction. NetSocket’s mashup approach correlates and presents data from the network, media and service/application layers simultaneously in a single view – making this data accessible and usable in ways not previously possible, and enabling precise control of network resources.

By using NetSocket’s solution:

  • Network operators can find, fix and prevent service problems in a few mouse clicks rather than hours or days – even before end users notice the problems.
  • End users work more efficiently and avoid frustration because their real-time voice and video services perform without glitches and failure.
  • Enterprises and other organizations deploying real-time IP services save in network operation, troubleshooting and downtime costs while preserving existing network investments, ultimately achieving improved business value.

Beginning operations in 2007, with corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas, and European headquarters in Luleå, Sweden, NetSocket is growing its customer base with large enterprises, defense agencies and wireless carriers worldwide.
