FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - Active Broadband Networks, the leading supplier of software-defined broadband service management solutions, today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 Global award. 

Red Herring's Top 100 Global awards honor the year's most promising new companies and entrepreneurs. The award is given to the leading private companies from North America, Europe and Asia to celebrate their innovations and technologies across their respective industries. 

Active Broadband is the leading supplier of software-defined broadband service management solutions that give operators full programmatic control of the network at the broadband edge in order to grow revenues, reduce costs and improve customer quality of experience.

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track records and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models from around the world.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring.
