What's Cool This Year In Software-Defined Networking? Here Are 10 Tools

128T Networking Platform

Burlington, Mass-based startup 128 Technology built a software-based routing offering that was created to be both session-oriented and service-centric. The 128T Networking Platform is a distributed routing and network services offering that uses secure routing to simplify network architectures, provides end-to-end control and visibility without disrupting existing network infrastructure, and enables customers to build networks that are session-based, software-defined and services-centric. The platform is sold as a monthly subscription.

The 128T Networking Platform can natively provide stateful firewall, load balancing and other advanced network capabilities, mitigating the need for expensive stand-alone appliances.  Being session-oriented also enables the platform to eliminate overlays and tunneling techniques that are prone to latency and complexity, said the company.
