LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Atlas has announced the creation of a Global Advisory Board made of industry experts in multiple disciplines as it prepares for its worldwide launch in Q2 of 2019.
The company has been beta-testing its near real-time map of the world's submarine and terrestrial networks for several months now, collecting feedback from early adopters and audiences at multiple major tech conferences. The Global Advisory Board will be filled with some of the brightest stars in the tech world and will aid the Network Atlas team in making the product better. The Board's members will also be ambassadors of Network Atlas at various conferences in the future where possible.
"The mission of Network Atlas is to provide users with up-to-date visualizations of the operational status of the world's data center and network infrastructure," says Network Atlas founder Mehmet Akcin. "Our Global Advisory Board will work hand-in-hand with our team to ensure that our product is properly developed and able to be utilized to its full potential."
Network Atlas' versatility was on display at the recent series of conferences in Dubai, San Francisco, and Sao Paulo, where it made over 200 unique introductions using the automated "Buy Capacity" feature, creating major sales opportunities for companies that provide their information to Network Atlas. Network Atlas does not accept any commissions from these interactions, making it an unbiased, neutral and affordable interlocutor in the sales process. As a result, Network Atlas has seen a 500 percent increase in monthly visitors over the past six months.
"We knew Network Atlas' diverse applications would make it a disruptive force in the marketplace, so to see that starting to happen is really exciting," says Akcin. "Network Atlas can be a way to disseminate information about the status of networks quickly, so in that sense, it functions as a news outlet. It can connect people and providers together to make deals without an agent in the middle. It can be a resource for network and data center professionals to aid them in planning their networks. Now, with a Global Advisory Board made up of top minds with diverse backgrounds, we have the ability to quickly get incredibly valuable feedback from industry thought leaders."
Members of the Board of Advisors are:
Anne-Marie Eklund Löwinder, Swedish Internet Foundation
Brynn Fowler, Women's Tech Forum
Carlos Martinez, LACNIC
Chris Street, ST Telemedia Global Data Centres
Dave Crowley, Microsoft
Greg Mahlknecht, Always Active Technologies
