Lendio | February 24, 2022

Lendio Announces
Lendio, the nation’s leading small business financial solutions marketplace, announced the beta launch of its new lender-tech platform and loan origination software (LOS). This cloud-based platform will be the first to truly empower financial institutions with greater efficiency, speed and reduced risk while delivering a customer-centric and seamless experience for borrowers.

The LOS was developed to address specific pain points in business lending and allow Financial Institutions (FIs) to issue business loans at scale. The Lendio platform provides complete end-to-end LOS automated underwriting and eliminates the need for expensive manual loan processing, reducing costs and allowing FIs to expand the base of creditworthy customers.

During the past two years and through PPP, we saw the challenges, inefficiencies, and inequities in business lending and the marketplace need for banks, lenders, and community development financial institutions (CDFIs) to have better lending solutions and technology to serve business customers, especially small businesses,” 

Lendio CEO Brock Blake

The technology’s beta launch is being coordinated with two of Lendio’s key partners from the Lendio Marketplace ecosystem of financial institutions. Each will have early access and provide feedback on features, workflows, roadmaps, and the customer experience.

Long-term, the lender-tech platform and LOS will become the foundation for a customer-centric product for banks, alternative lenders, and CDFIs seeking efficient and affordable underwriting solutions.

"We are overjoyed to enter the hands-on testing phase of our lender-tech platform after all of the work and dedication put into developing it," says Lendio Lender Tech & Services GM and Head of Corporate Strategy, Denada Ramnishta. "Working in collaboration with our FI partners and leveraging their input and insights will be key to fulfilling Lendio’s mission of making business lending efficient, seamless, and accessible to all business owners. We’re excited to rethink what’s possible for business lending."

Lendio anticipates an official launch of its lender-tech platform later in 2022.

Prosimo Disrupts MCN Market by Making Multi-Cloud Connectivity Free

Prnewswire | June 29, 2023

Prosimo launches Prosimo MCN Foundation, an industry-disrupting free Multi-Cloud Networking solution powered by its Cloud-Native Full Stack Platform. Prosimo has received accolades from Fortune 500 financial service companies and prominent enterprises for its exceptional cloud-native architecture. The MCN Foundation offering has garnered praise for its ability to deliver significant cost savings, surpassing $100,000 compared to commercial alternatives. By adopting this solution, businesses move to advanced MCN solutions from Prosimo that can achieve a remarkable 30-50% reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO), potentially resulting in savings of millions of dollars. MCN Foundation Accelerates Cloud Adoption Enterprises progress through three key stages in their cloud journey. Stage 1 involves establishing reliable connectivity. In Stage 2, the focus shifts to supporting applications and services that utilize this connectivity. Finally, in Stage 3, enterprises genuinely reap the benefits of scalable cloud adoption. The current MCN solutions impose excessive time and financial burdens on enterprises due to complexities, lack of focus on applications/services, non-cloud-native operating models, and high licensing fees for Stage 1. These factors continue to hinder the Multi-Cloud Networking market's growth and slow cloud migration. The free MCN Foundation establishes itself as an undeniable starting point. As foundational Cloud Connectivity is delivered, Prosimo sets its sights on elevating the operating paradigm to the application layer and transitioning to a Service Networking environment. This transition enables seamless interconnectivity between applications and PaaS, addressing complex challenges like policy governance, segmentation, expediting app modernization, and optimizing cloud cost control. "Establishing a consistent, repeatable and scalable way to build connectivity to one or more public clouds and ensuring full end-to-end visibility in these environments are two of the biggest challenges for enterprises. Organizations must overcome the complex and cumbersome legacy connectivity solutions that require significant resources, time, and money to create a multicloud network. Prosimo MCN Foundation democratizes multicloud networking, accelerating the adoption and ability to scale connections to multiple public clouds, while also enabling enterprises to remain in full control of its infrastructure and focus on higher-value outcomes," said Bob Laliberte, Principal Analyst, Networking at ESG. "94% of enterprise cloud-native workloads run on multicloud environments and have the desire to increase agility to accelerate business velocity, according to our research. Solving cloud connectivity is a foundational requirement that makes cloud networking transparent and eliminates friction between cloud networking and DevOps, empowering them to work more collaboratively. This enables enterprises to focus on the application and allows DevOps to accelerate cloud migration and deliver innovations aligned with business goals. Prosimo MCN Foundation provides enterprise cloud journeys by enabling organizations to build consistent connectivity and policies across clouds and provides a NetDevOps-centric path for self-service onboarding of applications," said Paul Nashawaty, Principal Analyst, Infrastructure Modernization, Application Development and Modernization, at TechTarget Enterprise Strategy Group. Instant ROI with MCN Foundation "Enterprises are unfortunately stuck today in stage-1 of cloud networking - building network highways and cannot focus on real value - applications, services, and users. The customers who have adopted Prosimo have moved past the initial stages quickly and can rapidly innovate using cloud-native networking," said Ramesh Prabagaran, Co-founder and CEO at Prosimo. "30-50% savings is not something enterprises can ignore. Value is moving up the stack in cloud networking, and by democratizing MCN, we want to lead the charge to help enterprises get there quickly. Expect a lot of disruption in the market that is suppressed today by traditional approaches to cloud networking." About Prosimo Prosimo delivers a simplified multicloud infrastructure for distributed enterprise cloud journeys. Companies innovate faster and remain in control with the Prosimo integrated stack. This stack combines cloud networking, performance, security, observability, and cost management—all powered by data insights and machine learning models with autonomous cloud networking to reduce complexity and risk.

VIAVI Launches TM500 Cloud for O-RAN Testing at MWC Shanghai

Prnewswire | July 06, 2023

Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) has launched the TM500 Cloud, developed for testing cloud-deployed O-RAN components, at MWC Shanghai today. As operators increasingly deploy core network services in the cloud through hyperscalers and other cloud providers, the TM500 Cloud is designed to measure and mitigate any risks associated with the Quality of Service (QoS) for end users. The solution is applicable to typical O-RAN cloud deployment models, where the O-DU, O-CU, and core are all deployed in the cloud. The TM500 Cloud allows Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs) and operators to overcome risks associated with this new deployment model and ensures that they can deliver the same Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and QoS for end users as they would see with traditional gNB and core network architectures. The TM500 Cloud can be used in alternative deployment scenarios: for example, private or public cloud. Also, in architectures where the 5G User Plane Function (UPF) is deployed close to the edge of the "Cloud RAN" to meet strict latency requirements, the TM500 Cloud could likewise be deployed to measure performance in those architectures. The solution evaluates critical KPIs such as throughput, latency, and round-trip time, ensuring no compromise in performance per user as more users are added. It also guarantees that quality measures for applications, such as voice, remain uncompromised. As the TM500 is already the de facto test instrument standard for most NEMs, the TM500 Cloud is expected to be a natural extension for them, as many NEMs look to deploy O-RAN network components in the cloud. Also, as operators increasingly engage with cloud providers, the solution provides assurance that the scale and cost advantages they experience through cloud deployment of network elements will not come with the risk of a negative experience for their users. "We are excited about the potential of the TM500 Cloud," said Stephen Hire, Vice President, Wireless Marketing and Partnerships, VIAVI. "It is no small feat to replicate the performance of physical hardware in the cloud, especially as measurement from the perspective of the end user has remained elusive. The TM500 Cloud is that missing link which allows operators to deliver the same KPIs and QoS as traditional networks while benefiting from the cost, elasticity and scale advantages of the cloud." VIAVI will be demonstrating the TM500 Cloud at stand N1.F111 at MWC Shanghai. About VIAVI VIAVI (NASDAQ: VIAV) is a global provider of network test, monitoring and assurance solutions for communications service providers, hyperscalers, equipment manufacturers, enterprises, government and avionics. VIAVI is also a leader in light management technologies for 3D sensing, anti-counterfeiting, consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, government and aerospace applications.
