In today’s hyper connected digital environment, high speed and latency are the bane of internet users all over the world. With every new generation of wireless communication designed to achieve speeds never before experienced, telecommunication professionals have yet to fully unlock the potential of 5G connectivity.
The expectations that commercial consumers, businesses, and communication companies have begun to express about the technology further increases the stress to manufacture and supply software solutions that support it; and not every company is able to meet these new requirements efficiently or cost-effectively. However, these challenges can be overcome when an organisation reaches out to 6WIND, a global networking software company that specialises in virtual router (vRouter) solutions.
This network software provider has over 15 years of experience in the field, where it initially focused on providing high performance software to original equipment manufacturers (Tier 1 OEMs) to help them speed up their time to market and revenue to produce their networking products like UTM, 5G, uCPE, IPsec Gateway, and SD-WAN among many others.
6WIND approaches the conversation of 5G with a complete understanding of existing market challenges and works towards deploying effective strategies to overcome such challenges effectively. Due to the difficulties businesses face when attempting to integrate 5G-based technologies, 6WIND realised that it had to move from a centralised architecture to a disaggregated and distributed cloud-based one.
We provide the best cost to performance ratio along with unparalleled security, scalability, flexibility and reliability, which can be integrated and used in Tier 1 Service & Cloud Providers, OEMs and Enterprises
Julien Dahan, CEO of 6WIND, further explains that the company utilises control and user plane separation (CUPS) architecture, which is a fully distributed and cloudified model of a networking infrastructure. “It helps customers and partners to implement new 5G applications quickly and successfully,” he says.
Leveraging the vRouter technology offered by 6WIND today, several well-known service providers and telco companies excel at creating robust and secure networks for various business and commercial activities. Interestingly however, 6WIND refrained from stepping into the spotlight for over 15 years. “We always worked backstage, supporting customers and partners with innovative technologies,” adds Dahan. However, they have now taken the initiative to step forward and package, based on the company’s recognised core technology, leading-edge networking software solutions to provide customers and partners with an end-to-end, high performance, and secure journey.
6WIND’s technologies are high-performing and offer strong network security designed to help Service Providers, TEPs, NEMs, and OEMs adopt the latest in 5G connectivity. The company is currently capable of managing over 100,000 secure VPN tunnels per single instance and sustain an establishment rate of 1000 tunnels per second with their IPsec solution, which is far more than the average performance that other networking solution providers are capable of delivering today.
To illuminate the company’s networking competencies, the company’s 6WINDGate—the source foundation for tier 1 OEMs and telcos—empowers clients to build new products and solutions for 5G, SD-WAN, Data Centers, and IoT markets. Based on this technology, 6WIND developed its vRouter and Virtual Accelerator solutions.
The Company’s vRouter solutions bring to the forefront performance, security, along with flexibility, and virtualization capabilities enabling software to replace hardware routing devices without compromising on features or performance. This innovative technology empowers users to dynamically configure the device or network according to various project needs. For processes involving 5G, IoT, and SD-WAN related technologies especially, 6WIND helps execute them seamlessly with the most comprehensive security measures in place, while performance is constantly stable. The Virtual Accelerator software strengthens virtualization infrastructures by addressing the performance bottlenecks and enhancing the networking capabilities of hypervisors while preserving the flexibility and benefits of virtualization. “We provide performance, security, and reliability through our solutions, which can be integrated and used in big network environments with ease,” states Dahan.
With such advanced solutions for networking, the future of connectivity is set to witness a revolutionary change, and 6WIND is going to be at the centre of it all. The company is well vested in the networking markets globally, especially Europe, Americas, and Asia Pacific regions as 5G has created a large impact in these growing economies. “We are networking technology experts and always deliver on our promises; often exceeding expectations. 6WIND will continue to support its clients in addressing all their networking and communication needs more effectively and innovatively,” concludes Dahan.
