The challenge

When we say the Internet is broken, we’re not joking. Staggering amounts of money are spent by enterprises and service providers trying to secure, control, and optimize overly complex network – and internetwork – architectures. And the returns on those investments are far from satisfactory. Data breaches happen with disturbing regularity. Network outages ground planes and halt stock trading. New revenue generating services are put on ice for fear of a network overload. Today’s networks were never designed to support current demands, never mind those of tomorrow. 128 Technology has created a radically simpler network paradigm – one that can deliver far greater security, control, and agility.

 

Technology

The core innovation of the 128T Networking Platform is simplicity derived from session awareness. Session-oriented networks form the basis for what we call Secure Vector Routing, a new networking paradigm that provides advanced network functionality natively, without “bolt on” techniques. Because Secure Vector Routing is inherently service-centric, it enables a far-tighter alignment between the network and the applications it supports. And because it’s entirely software-based, advanced secure networking can be put anywhere and everywhere – bringing intelligence throughout the network.

Product

The 128T Networking Platform forms the foundation for a new breed of end-to-end intelligent, deterministic routing. Native, smart networking fundamentals such as true session awareness, directional routing and flow symmetry change the possibilities for service delivery and internetworking. Virtual, software-based session detection enables native advanced network services and zero trust security – without additional boxes or overlays. The 128T Networking Platform’s session-oriented software integrates and works with all existing network technology. There is no need to “rip and replace.”

USE CASES

Create new architectures not possible with traditional networking solutions. Rather than stitching networks together through complex overlays, create direct connections across supplier or partner domains, dynamically scaling or terminating them as needed. Build segregated virtual networks that can span racks and geographic locations with the security, performance and control of a private cloud. Implement end-to-end network segmentation across a hybrid WAN without overlays. In short, re-think the way you network and deliver services.
