The Portland technology company is looking to hire more than thirty of the best and brightest industry professionals.

APCON Inc., a seemingly low-profile technology company located in the Portland area is quietly enjoying year end-over-end growth thanks to the ongoing rise in Internet traffic and the increased demand for the company’s data filtering and aggregation technology. For many of the world’s most recognized telecom and financial services companies, APCON technology helps ensure that customer service remains uninterrupted and critical data stays secure.

With the amount of Internet traffic projected to continue its explosive growth, APCON expects that its own growth will continue to buck industry trends.

“According to Cisco Systems, global data networks will be delivering 80.5 exabytes per month - the data equivalent of every movie that’s ever been made being sent every 5 minutes,” said Richard Rauch, APCON’s president and CEO. “With APCON products being used throughout data centers of many Fortune 500 companies, chances are very good that technology developed and manufactured right here in Portland is playing a critical role in ensuring that you’re online financial transactions, voice data and other Internet-delivered information are being delivered without a glitch.”

APCON’s line of IntellaFlex network switches are used to help companies monitor the health and security of the data running through their networks every second. The software side of the company’s switching technology makes it possible for users to easily monitor and analyze selected components of the data being sent.

“While many consider APCON to be a hardware company, our team of software engineers continue to push the envelope in interface and reporting technology,” said Rauch. “In reality we are in neither the hardware nor the software business. We are a solutions company.”

Hiring In Portland

Last year, industry analysts determined that 2010 would be the “worst year ever” for information technology sales, yet APCON predicted its revenues would increase by 50 percent. By year end, that prediction fell by the wayside as APCON saw revenues double in size.

With the increasing rise in network data and new APCON product introductions on the horizon for 2011, the Portland technology company is again predicting another 50 percent increase in annual revenue. APCON recently opened a second facility near Dallas Texas and is looking to hire more than thirty of the best and brightest industry professionals for both its Portland and Dallas locations.
