CRN Selects DriveNets as a Leading 2020 Emerging Vendor in Networking

CRN’s 2020 Emerging Vendors list recognizes vendors that are revolutionizing the IT channel with innovative solutions that meet the complex demands of our industry

Raanana, Israel, July 20th 2020 – DriveNets, the networking software company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named DriveNets to its 2020 Emerging Vendors list in the Networking and U/C category. This annual list honors new, rising technology suppliers that exhibit great promise enabling the future success of their channel with technology and business model innovation. 

DriveNets Network Cloud is a disaggregated high-scale networking solution for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and Cloud Hyperscalers, based on cloud-native software running on standard networking white boxes. It simplifies the network’s operational model, overcoming the limitations of traditional hardware-centric solutions and breaks vendor lock-in, allowing CSPs and Hyperscalers to choose white box vendors independently of their networking software. Replacing the architecture that has been in place for the last twenty years, the unified model can scale to all parts of the network including at the core, aggregation and peering points as well as the Telco Edge to support low latency and 5G applications.

“DriveNets is honored to be recognized by CRN for our disruptive open model which enables our tier-1 customers to build networks that can scale network services and application workloads to new levels in a smarter, more cost-effective way. Our partners play a pivotal role in the successful adoption of disaggregated networks and we are currently expanding our ecosystem around the world with further leading system integratorsIdo Susan, CEO and Co-Founder, DriveNets. 

The CRN list is the latest in a series of awards for DriveNets who were recently named Gartner Cool Vendor. The company was also selected to give the largest ever live demonstration of a distributed open edge/core router, the first Distributed Disaggregated Chassis, at the OCP Virtual Summit along with its ecosystem partners. 

“CRN’s 2020 Emerging Vendors list recognizes vendors that are revolutionizing the IT channel with innovative solutions that meet the complex demands of our industry,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors inspirational new vendors that are driving channel growth with state-of-the-art technologies that will continue to shape the channel into the future.”

The Emerging Vendors list is selected by CRN’s esteemed editorial team. These vendors are inspiring the IT channel with groundbreaking technologies and best-in-class offerings that are elevating businesses – driving success with solutions built to battle the challenges of the IT channel.

The 2020 Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2020 issue of CRN Magazine and online at
