By Laura Stotler, Transforming Network Infrastructure | January 19, 2017

The process of digital transformation is massive, mountainous even. To approach this daunting but rewarding undertaking as a one-time project with temporary disruptions and inconveniences would be to fail to understand how complex and comprehensive an endeavor it is. And yet that’s how many companies few the migration path to transforming their network architectures, often to their detriment.

By adopting a broader view of the digital transformation process, organizations can avoid some of the pitfalls of short-sighted and short-term planning.

As 2016 continues to serve as a banner year for innovation, from the data center to the boardroom the software defined revolution is a very real thing. A firm riding the wave of this innovation is Fiber Mountain, celebrating a banner year itself. Starting in January with the announcement of the CrossCage Plus at ITEXPO – which won best in show – then in April The Glass Core Company was named a finalist for the Best of Interop Award, an honor in its own right. When summer was heating up here in the United States, Fiber Mountain was named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner, and now another major announcement.

Today, Fiber Mountain announced a new partnership with Legrand. Pairing the infrastructure connectivity leader with an innovator in applying software to manage fiber is a major coup for each side. For Legrand, it adds the bleeding edge in software-defined data center solutions, and on the flip side, Fiber Mountain is able to augment the presence of its Glass Core intelligent optical cross connect and connectivity products.
