The company saw a record-breaking Q1 in global sales, hired Dennis Omanoff as the first COO in the company's history and shipped 53,000+ ports.
“As we anticipate evolving network demands, Net Optics continues to diversify its family of solutions,” said Net Optics CEO Bob Shaw. “Our approach stands out as we are the only ones to offer a family of integrated solutions that span AA-NPM, load balancing, NPB, virtual taps and network taps.”
In Q1, Net Optics announced the first and only Network Packet Broker (NPB) solution to seamlessly integrate Software Defined Networking (SDN) and also forged the way for 40G and 100G migration through the launch of the 40G iBypass Switch™.
In his March 2013 report, “Network Packet Brokers Enable Network Teams to Scale Operational and Security Use Cases,” Gartner analyst Jonah Kowall advises companies to, “Consider NPB, NPM, and application performance monitoring (APM) use cases within your SDN and data center switching strategy.”
On the heels of global expansion and increased demand, Net Optics hired its first COO, Dennis Omanoff, to guide worldwide business development, engineering and manufacturing teams. The need for a COO became evident as the company is breaking records in revenue, releasing more products than at any time in its history, and attacking the cloud and software defined networking with soon-to-be announced innovations. Omanoff, a highly regarded security industry veteran, is a supply chain and scalability expert who comes from Seagate and McAfee.

The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. The winner will be announced in June.
