Spectrum Effect Named a 2019 ‘Cool Vendor’ in Communications Service Provider Network Operations by Gartner

KIRKLAND, WA USA – June 17, 2019 – Spectrum Effect™, a pioneer in RF spectrum analytics, today announced it has been named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner, Inc. in its May 2019 report, “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Network Operations.” The report also acknowledged Spectrum Effect’s solution Spectrum-NET.

According to Gartner, “Communications service providers’ digital transformation requires network virtualization, programmability, scale and automation. CSPs must select suppliers that offer such solutions and use open-source/vendor-agnostic components in order to improve network agility, performance and efficiencies.”

“We are honored to be recognized as a Cool Vendor in Communications Service Provider Networks by Gartner, one of the top analyst firms in the industry,” commented Spectrum Effect CEO, Charles Immendorf. “I am proud of the entire Spectrum Effect team, whose passion for innovation is the driving force behind the tremendous advances of our revolutionary Spectrum-NET solution.”

The report states: “The Cool Vendors featured in this document provide solutions that achieve a network’s innovative operating model and business model. This approach differs from current solutions that satisfy some portions of the digital service providers’ vision. CSPs can use these solutions for greater agility in delivering new services, revenue enhancement through customer retention, and network efficiencies via virtualization and automation. The vendors differ from their competitors in that they create new value, solve difficult problems and provide cost-efficiencies. These vendors are cool because they enable CSPs to launch the future of network infrastructure and operations along the spectrum of digital transformation.”
