  • Screw Easy, the Learning is in the Hard Stuff

    August 20, 2017

    The key to our new reality centered on getting service providers — big companies that provide colocation, network connectivity, and other core infrastructure services — to (1) see the value of our marketplace platform and (2) share their data with us about what they own, where they’re located and the services they offer at those locations. Based on the relationships we’d accumulated with service providers over the years, we thought this wouldn’t be a big challenge.

  • PacketFabric on software gone wild

    June 9, 2017

    Imagine a service provider that allows you to provision 100GE point-to-point circuit between any two of their POPs through a web site and delivers in seconds (assuming you’ve already solved the physical connectivity problem). That’s the whole idea of SDN, right? Only not so many providers got there yet.

    Now imagine they’re doing something really cool behind the scenes like using VXLAN with EVPN on the edges and MPLS/TE in the core (but only when needed) combined with leading-edge optical technologies. Welcome to PacketFabric.

    Interested? Listen below to find out the interesting details in Episode 80 of Software Gone Wild with Richard Steenbergen, CTO at PacketFabric, and an awesome optical networking presenter… as you’ll quickly notice in the second half of the podcast ;)
