For the 3rd Time, Aligned Technology Solutions Appears on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 2592 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 159 Percent

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Inc. magazine today revealed that Aligned Technology Solutions is No. 2592 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment-its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

"The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled," says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."

MetaGeek Unveils New Tech Support Product Addressing Remote Employees’ Home Wi-Fi

BOISE, Idaho -- Today Wi-Fi tech company MetaGeek announces the launch of its highly anticipated Signifi Business. Signifi Business helps IT professionals visualize and troubleshoot employees' home Wi-Fi networks with remote tools and a centralized dashboard.

It's designed for organizations supporting remote or hybrid employees, which has become a significant percentage of the workforce as the pandemic year has permanently changed many employees' and businesses' relationship to the office.

How It Works from the IT Pro's Perspective

"Signifi Business allows IT to remotely diagnose connectivity issues on employees' Wi-Fi networks, no matter their location," explains MetaGeek's Founder and "Chief Geek" Ryan Woodings. "The best part is that front-line remote troubleshooting is done for you, and you only have to get involved when there are escalations."

End users install a lightweight desktop client that scans their network periodically, diagnoses issues, and suggests step-by-step fixes for them to try, while at the same time sending network data to the admin dashboard.

That way, if the self-help fixes don't work, IT administrators already have all the information needed to step in and resolve the problem quickly - no tedious helpdesk calls required.

What It Costs

The $150 plan is billed annually for five seats, with a 14-day free trial to start. Additional seats are available at $30/year.

Fusion Broadband embraces Equinix in global expansion of its SD-WAN service

SORRENTO, Victoria, Australia -- Leading SD-WAN provider, Fusion Broadband, has expanded into Equinix, which will give it a significantly larger global footprint and enable it to offer customers enhanced performance and more advanced connectivity options.

Equinix is a leading digital infrastructure company operating more than 220 data centres in 26 countries on five continents.

As the networking requirements of global businesses become more sophisticated, Fusion Broadband identified a need to support their customers' growth by leveraging Equinix and offering greater WAN connectivity through direct access to a multitude of cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, Alibaba and Oracle.

Jason Maude, managing director of Fusion Broadband, said the new arrangement with Equinix(R) and Equinix Metal(TM) will allow the company to quickly and easily provide dedicated SD-WAN gateways in more than 50 location points globally.

"With our unique SD-WAN orchestration platform customers are able to deploy SD-WAN sites and gateways in minuets, as well as enable direct connections with the majority of the major cloud providers. They can be self-managed or our team of SD-WAN specialists can manage them for the customer. Dedicated private backbones between regions can also be provisioned for customers adding a greater level of performance and security.

"With Equinix Fabric, we can offer global or national customers faster and more flexible access to all of the cloud services and partners that are on the Platform Equinix. This allows customers to extend the reach of their SD-WAN network not only globally but also with direct access into the world's largest cloud service providers."

As an example, a customer that prefers to have a dedicated environment (as opposed to a shared multi-tenant environment) for its offices in each region may elect to have one or two POPs in each region, which very easily allows a private backbone between POPs to be created that can support speeds from tens of Mbps through to 10-20Gbps.

"By combining the benefits of our POP infrastructure from IBM Cloud and now Equinix, we have a significantly larger global footprint," Maude said.

"Our SD-WAN managed service business already supports over 100 multi-tenant gateways around the world. The addition of Equinix will allow us to further expand this with the ability to deploy dedicated gateways for customers or dedicated private connections between SD-WAN gateways. It can be set up within a matter of hours."

With Equinix's private backbone, Fusion Broadband's international customers can now easily build their own private backbone between their Fusion Broadband SD-WAN gateways - either dedicated or multi-tenant -- where backbone capacity can be scaled up and down as required. These private backbone links offer guaranteed performance and security between gateways.

"The ability to quickly turn on direct links via Equinix or even Megaport's peering fabrics means we can provide customers with a tremendous amount of connection and SD-WAN flexibility," Maude added.

About Fusion Broadband:

Australian-headquartered Fusion Broadband provides a unique broadband bonding solution that fuses multiple broadband connections together to make a much faster and more reliable connection.

Cole Engineering awarded $179M OTA by U.S. Army

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cole Engineering Services, Inc. (CESI), a By Light Company, has been awarded a $179M Other Transaction Authority (OTA) agreement to serve as the core software enabler for the Synthetic Training Environment (STE) Training Simulation Software / Training Management Tool (TSS/TMT). The TSS/TMT is the "core" simulation software and hardware that provides a common synthetic environment, the exercise design and control tool, and data manager for STE collective training.

As the Army's future training capability, the STE will be a single, interconnected training system that provides a training environment, in which units from Soldier/Squad through Army Service Component Command conduct collective training. The STE will converge the live, virtual, constructive, and gaming environments as one complete training capability.

"Team CESI is honored to be entrusted to enable the future of the Army's Synthetic Training Environment to empower a revolution in Army training capability and effectiveness," said Devin Lyders, CESI Senior Vice President, Advanced Training Systems, "We have taken great pride in supporting STE since the initial onset of prototyping activities in 2018 and are proud to offer a comprehensive solution that is modular, scalable, and prepared to rapidly deliver capability into the hands of the Soldier. As a participant in and benefactor of Soldier Centric Design, CESI understands at its core that the TSS/TMT capabilities are about delivering the best possible training to our Warfighters no matter the place, time, or domain."

Team CESI consists of a robust group of contributors with deep understanding of the STE vision including 4C North America, Inc.; Bohemia Interactive Simulations, Inc.; Cesium GS, Inc.; Dignitas Technologies; Leidos, Inc.; Perspecta; Raydon Corporation; Systematic, Inc.; and Maxar Technologies.

The Team CESI solution is a modular open systems architecture built on a CESI-developed backbone called MSSV ("massive"). The TSS/TMT solution will realize a modern, modular system that converges live, virtual, constructive, and gaming environments into a single, holistic synthetic environment. MSSV is a proven, hardened architecture solution that will allow an integrated, tested, and training-ready capability to be delivered in under a year.

"By Light and its companies continue to provide innovative systems and solutions to help stay ahead of our country's adversaries," said Bob Donahue Jr., Chief Executive Officer of By Light, "Team CESI is immediately postured to deliver a solution that keeps our soldiers in front and is adaptable to the ever-changing operational environment."
