128 Technology integrates software-defined routing with ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid Network Infrastructure Management Solutions

Today, ZPE Systems, Inc., a leading provider of network infrastructure management solutions, and 128 Technology, Inc. (128T), a leading provider of software-defined networking solutions announced a strategic partnership to offer combined networking and out-of-band management capabilities.

As a result of the agreement, customers will experience faster and smarter designs, deployments, and support for their networking solutions.

ZPE Systems’ Nodegrid hardware and software directly host 128T’s SD-WAN offerings, such as their Session Smart™ routing application, for an all-in-one platform that vastly improves branch networking. Nodegrid’s strong capabilities are enhanced by this tight integration with 128T, to deliver a powerful combined solution that’s easier to deploy and support.

“ZPE has a very strong communications channel with 128T,” says ZPE Systems’ CEO and Cofounder Arnaldo Zimmermann. “With this partnership, our customers can benefit from an always-ready OOB platform with SD-WAN and cellular failover. In addition, they no longer need to worry about the handoff during support — they get direct assistance with both their Nodegrid appliances and their 128T solution.”

ZPE’s global headquarters is located in Fremont, California with offices throughout the US and globally in Ireland, India, Brazil, and Japan. For more information, visit

About 128 Technology, Inc.

We’re relentless in our commitment to creating a world where the network is no longer following changes in the computing environment—it’s leading.

We are serial entrepreneurs, die-hard technologists, and principled pragmatists. But most of all, we’re purists—when there’s an important problem to solve, we do it right, or we don’t do it at all. The world needs more than yet another temporary solution. It needs a radical redesign of the core network building block—the router—and that’s what we’ve done. We took our innovation down to the IP layer to solve for every connected session because when the underlay works, the overlay goes away—and so does the accumulation of technical debt.

128T is headquartered in Massachusetts, USA, with additional offices in Germany and Japan. For more information, visit
