Clovis Solutions Secures $11m Series B Funding from American River Ventures, Intel Capital, Sevin Rosen Funds, and Walden International.
"With this round of funding Clovis will continue building its product acceptance momentum with the expansion of sales, marketing, and support," stated V.K. Budhraja, Clovis founder and Chief Executive Officer. "The ability to expand our reach across multiple market segments is an important step in achieving the long-term goals we have set for the Clovis team."
"We backed the Clovis team because solution providers from around the world are recognizing the value of the SISP architecture and implementation that provides end-to-end management across their data, control, management, and service planes," said Steve Dow, General Partner, Sevin Rosen Funds. "The market demand for commercial off-the-shelf solutions like SISP is staged for sustained growth."
"Intel Capital's investment in Clovis Solutions is consistent with Intel's commitment to open standards based commercial off the shelf platforms that enable the communications industry," said Ton Steenman, general manager, Modular Communications Platform Division (MCPD).
As a result of using the innovative System Infrastructure Software Platform (SISP) product from Clovis Solutions, NEPs, TEMs, and even Service Providers could gain a competitive advantage in this fast moving and converging communications market segment.
The Clovis Solutions System Infrastructure SW Platform (SISP) product can be seen integrated with IBM's Integrated Platform for Telecommunications (IPT) and Hewlett Packard's Advanced Open Telecommunications Platform (AOTP) at SuperComm 2005 in the Service Availability Forum's booth # 71022.
