WE’RE CHANGING THE FUTURE OF NETWORKING
The networks of tomorrow will need to provide ubiquitous connectivity, combining multiple access technologies, and will be quick and easy to re-configure as demand fluctuates. This can only be achieved by having total visibility and control of the network, and by having the ability to apportion and re-apportion different levels of service to different users and devices, at the drop of a hat. This is the vision that drove the founders of Zeetta Networks to develop our technology in the first place, and which continue to underpin our company’s strategy and ambition.
NETWORKING HAS COME OF AGE
Zeetta Networks is helping to make networks work the way they ought to work. In recent years, the telecoms and data networking sectors have seen the advent of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), where a network is ‘virtualised’ and controlled by software to enable its management through programmable APIs and user-friendly Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs). The focus of network operations has shifted away from the hardware, cabling and physical connections to the ability to visualise, monitor and manage the network in a flexible way through software. Furthermore, there is now a growing demand for Open Networking solutions, where a network owner is able to deploy devices from a multitude of manufacturers rather than being locked in to a particular manufacturer’s (often more expensive) devices.
PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES TO ENABLE THE FUTURE OF NETWORKINGZeetta Networks supports and extends the Open Networking philosophy beyond data centres to core and access networks, towards a future where the whole ‘end-to-end’ network is as agile as it needs to be. In order to help our customers make the most efficient use of their network resources, Zeetta has developed patented technologies that provide more flexibility and freedom than any other solution, and give network owners the ability to manage their services – and budgets – more effectively in the process. The ease with which a network can be sliced and spliced is entirely due to the patented technologies that form the foundation of NetOS®.
With the ever-increasing demand for connectivity, and with more and more data traffic needing to be carried over different kinds of network, Zeetta Networks is driving innovation at the forefront of a completely new era in network technology.
HOW DO WE DO IT?Our software platform, NetOS®, creates and maintains a virtualised representation of the aggregated network topology which can be viewed on a single console, allowing you to manage and re-configure it as required. This virtualised network topology can be based on a single network or it can be the result of ‘splicing’ together multiple sub-networks including optical, packet, wireless and even low power IoT radio sub-networks. Once spliced together, this ‘network-of-networks’ can then be ‘sliced’ to make any number of sub-networks which can in turn be assigned to different network users or tenants, each of whom can be provided with full visibility and control over their own network slice. It’s a simple yet extremely powerful way to manage complex networks. Find out more…
- Through our patented network splicing® technology, an aggregated single virtual network can be created that combines multiple technologies – whether optical, packet, wireless or radio. The resulting single network can then be viewed as a single topology using our NetOS® console, allowing monitoring and management of any part of your network, on demand.
- In order to maximise the utilisation of your network assets, NetOS® lets you provision different services and service levels to groups of users, devices or applications operating on your network. This is simply a matter of creating segments (slices) within your network, each of which can be made available as an isolated sub-network to a tenant, who has complete visibility, control and security over their designated slice of the network.
- As a pure open networking solution, NetOS® operates independently of the underlying hardware through standardised protocols and interfaces (e.g. OpenFlow, NETCONF, YANG, etc.). This vendor-agnostic approach means that NetOS® can work equally well with all your current and future vendors, freeing you up from having to work with proprietary solutions, and giving you the freedom to pick-and-mix branded and/or ‘bare-metal’ hardware vendors when extending your infrastructure or building it from scratch.
- Not only NetOS® is based on open standards but it offers also an open API environment to control your network ‘end-to-end’ by allowing third parties to develop their own network service applications on top. This enables new business models and revenue streams for infrastructure owners, such as neutral hosting whereby multiple tenants can operate over a common, shared infrastructure, each managing and controlling their own isolated network slice.
