Oct 19, 2006
FatPipe Networks™, the inventor and multiple patents holder of WAN optimization, redundancy and security products, today announced that it ranked Number 381 on Deloitte's 2006 Technology Fast 500. The Technology Fast 500 is a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2001–2005. FatPipe's revenue grew 320 percent during this period.
FatPipe Network's CEO, Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D., credits the 320 percent growth in revenue to steady demand for its innovative router clustering and other Internet/WAN optimization devices and solid relationships with customers. He said, "This was FatPipe's first year of eligibility for Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, and we were excited to see where we stood in terms of percentage of revenue growth among today's top technology companies in North America. This is a tremendous achievement for FatPipe. I am thankful to our customers, our brilliant engineering staff lead by Sanch Datta, and our extremely capable sales and support staff that help grow FatPipe every year," Dr. Bhaskar concluded.
"Given the increased competition and tightening of discretionary spending, it's more impressive than ever for companies to be among the fastest growing in North America," said Tony Kern, deputy managing principal of Deloitte's Technology, Media & Telecommunications industry practice. "We acknowledge FatPipe Networks for its fast-paced growth in an increasingly competitive world."
