Network Atlas has announced the creation of a Global Advisory Board made of industry experts in multiple disciplines as it prepares for its launch later this month.

Network Atlas is preparing to be “the world's first visual representation of the global network and data centre infrastructure”. Network Atlas is seeking to give visibility on the operational status of networks and the new board is set to advise on future strategy and growth. 

The company has been beta-testing its “near real-time map of the world's submarine and terrestrial networks for several months now, collecting feedback from early adopters and audiences at multiple major tech conferences”.

"The mission of Network Atlas is to provide users with up-to-date visualisations of the operational status of the world's data centre and network infrastructure," said Mehmet Akcin, founder of Network Atlas.

"Our Global Advisory Board will work hand-in-hand with our team to ensure that our product is properly developed and able to be utilised to its full potential."

Confirmed members of the board of advisors are:

  • Anne-Marie Eklund Löwinder, Swedish Internet Foundation

  • Brynn Fowler, Women's Tech Forum

  • Carlos Martinez, LACNIC

  • Chris Street, ST Telemedia Global Data Centres

  • Dave Crowley, Microsoft

  • Greg Mahlknecht, Always Active Technologies

  • Jason Black, Ph.D., Uber Technologies

  • James Daquino, ICM Partners

  • Mehdi Daoudi, Catchpoint

  • Naaz Bax, Seaborn Networks

  • Nigel Bayliff, Aquacomms

  • Zach Smith, Packet

Akcin added: "We knew Network Atlas' diverse applications would make it a disruptive force in the marketplace, so to see that starting to happen is really exciting. Network Atlas can be a way to disseminate information about the status of networks quickly, so in that sense, it functions as a news outlet.
