Cirries Technologies, Inc., began in 2006 to address the need for disparate networks to communicate, and to allow any network to access any application. The company is based in Richardson, Texas, with offices in Chicago, Illinois, Moscow, Russia, Cochabamba, Bolivia, Mexico City, and Grenoble, France.
The company’s initial market was primarily the voice-multimedia networks operated by telecommunications carriers and service providers. Its product: a powerful real-time communications network engine that made any generation of service or application run over any generation of network.
The advent of smart phones, other mobile devices, and Internet-connected machines, however, transformed and rearranged Cirries’ market. Cirries responded by expanding Maestro’s capabilities beyond its original protocol and signaling mediation to encompass data mediation (big data), machine-to-machine (M2M), software-defined networking (SDN), and network function virtualization (NFV).
Maestro today unleashes the full value and potential of any kind of network, whether operated by carriers, service providers, or enterprises. Maestro is capable of processing extremely high volumes of network traffic and data while monitoring, reporting, and managing all network functions. Maestro makes every aspect of network management work together in an unprecedented holistic manner, thus infusing any network with a level of intelligence, control, and visibility never before possible.
A fast-changing market prompted Cirries to practice the kind of rapid, nimble response that Maestro makes possible for its customers. Had the company not evolved Maestro, its growth prospects would be far less bright. Cirries’ customers use Maestro to do precisely the same thing: stay on top of their rapidly changing networks to gain instant, actionable insights to evolve their businesses and tap new markets.
In the process, Cirries has ferreted out and focused on high-value telecom/IT niches that few other companies think are big enough markets to warrant the investment of their time and resources. Yet without protocol and signaling mediation on the telecom side, and data mediation on the IT side, the evolution of voice-data-multimedia networks will be far more costly and cumbersome, and big data will remain primarily an unrealized resource.
Cirries believes carriers and service providers want and deserve the bridge technology that Maestro represents to help them evolve their networks at a cost-effective pace. On the enterprise side, a lot of big data projects are failing because most software developers omit essential up-front tools for filtering, collating, and normalizing big data, which is one of Maestro’s strengths. It’s not possible to analyze or exploit big data in any useful way without this initial investment, which Cirries has made in Maestro.
Cirries maintains a strict focus on its core competency while maximizing revenue potential by selling directly to select carriers and service providers and to channel partners. Cirries’ pricing practices, embraced by channel partners and end customers, allows the latter to achieve targeted returns on their investments in Maestro in a shorter timeframe.
