5G and Edge Computing Application Management Startup Aarna Networks Closes $3.5M Seed Round

SAN JOSE, CA, USA, January 4, 2022 / -- Aarna Networks, which offers a zero touch management software solution for 5G and edge computing applications to enterprise customers, announced today that it closed a $3.5M seed financing round.

The software company based in San Jose, CA, attracted four top Silicon Valley seed investors—Silicon Valley Quad, Inventus Capital Partners, Arka Venture Labs, and RiSo Capital—along with prominent industry executives. The company will use the funding for further enhancing existing go-to-market efforts that have generated prominent customers both domestically and internationally.

“This investment is a validation of our vision and execution, and will help us deliver on our vision of pervasive Private 5G and edge computing for enterprises,” said Amar Kapadia, Co-founder and CEO of Aarna Networks.

With 5G and edge computing, there will be an exponential growth in the number of edge cloud and application instances. In addition, the edge environment will be under constant change. These new trends will put tremendous stress on the management of applications and this stress creates the need for a new solution.

Aarna Networks solves this problem by providing an open source orchestration, lifecycle management, and control loop automation solution. Our platform is vendor neutral, cloud native, lightweight, easy to operate, standards aligned, and has comprehensive support for 5G.

“5G and edge computing are a once-in-a-generation opportunity. Aarna Networks is well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity and we are excited to be part of their journey. Aarna’s focus on the management plane provides a unique value proposition,” said Kanwal Rekhi, Founding Managing Director at Inventus Capital and partner at Silicon Valley Quad (SVQ).

At SVQ we look forward to working with the Aarna team as they innovate on key 5G, edge computing, and O-RAN related concepts and fitting these solutions to different markets to help solve critical problems for customers. We believe Aarna will play a very important role in the industry as 5G proliferation starts to happen in enterprises given its unique characteristics of low latency and other technology benefits,” said B.V.Jagadeesh, founder and managing partner of KAAJ Ventures in Silicon Valley and partner at SVQ.
