NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2021 / Big Network, a cloud managed connectivity platform, announced today it has raised $2 million in seed funding led personally by Harvey Allison, co-founder of the Attractor family of crossover hedge funds. Additional funding was provided by Tom Daly, co-founder at Dyn and previously SVP Infrastructure of Fastly. The Seed Series will be used to further develop the company's cloud managed connectivity platform that securely and instantly connects people, places, clouds and their devices anywhere.
'We started building Big Network in August of 2019 believing that the ability to work from anywhere is the future. Doing so would ultimately require secure, cloud managed, decentralized networks that could be instantly provisioned and remotely managed,' said Robert Muller, Founder and CEO, Big Network. 'The pandemic happened and work from everywhere became everyone's reality. Big Network's Platform works on top of any network to instantly provision secure networking and services through our robust network automation.'

Vubiq Networks uses Big Network for out of band management on their 5G radios and to provide remote connectivity to their development teams as if they were locally in the lab.
'During the pandemic, no one could be in our studios, and our producers needed a means to access our production systems as though they were there,' said Chris Kollmar, Chief Broadcast Engineer for Embassy Row.

Big Network's solution was seamless to install and acted like a natural extension of our network, securely and instantly across the Internet.'
