EKINOPS : Smart Networking through Cloud-based Virtualization

Didier Brédy, CEO, EKINOPS Didier Brédy, CEO
With growing digitalization, there is increasing pressure on networks even as organizations demand more control and flexibility of the network operations. These developments are calling for major strategic changes employed by network and managed service providers. Amid this scenario, SD-WAN has emerged as the go-to solution aiding firms to migrate to a software-defined infrastructure. With a flexible architecture capable of prioritizing the performance of critical applications, SD-WAN enables service providers to formulate a viable business case to broaden their addressable market and target a wider range of companies. But there are many challenges. The immense technical complexity in adopting SD-WAN and the lack of resources and talented and experienced professionals make it daunting for companies to augment their network innovation. The other major challenge being that SD-WAN vendor appliances rarely support the full range of connectivity and routing options. Consequently, organizations have to continue using traditional routers in parallel or abandon part of their unsupported legacy systems.

But there is help in sight. EKINOPS is enabling companies to stay ahead of the growing network requirements with its layer 1, 2 and 3 solutions to service providers and enterprises around the world. The company’s open, programmable and highly scalable solutions enable efficient optical transport. With more organizations joining the chorus of NFV and SDN, EKINOPS enables operators to seamlessly migrate to an open, virtualized delivery model.

The company’s solutions and services include Ekinops360, OneAccess, and Compose. Ekinops360 enables low latency and high capacity across metro, enterprise, submarine, and long-haul. On the other hand, OneAccess offers branch access solutions with a multi-services approach. It provides agility, performance and flexibility to the edge with devices and multi-services software that support branch deployment. Compose provides software-managed network solutions. Through a software-defined framework, Compose improves networks with virtualized services, SD-WAN, and security. All in all, service providers can shape the future of communication networks with carrier-grade transport and access solutions with EKINOPS’ help.

Ease of integration and drag and drop UI improves the journey of the customers toward virtualization. Programmable architecture, alliances program & certification, and strong R&D investment drive the value for EKINOPS' clients

As network services delivery is changing, EKINOPS has risen to the occasion enabling service providers to transition to next-generation networks, including SD-WAN.
