Gartner recently recommended that “FatPipe offers one of the market’s most advanced WAN path controllers’ and companies should consider FatPipe for WAN optimization when it is beneficial to combine basic WAN optimization features with good WAN path selection control capabilities. ” It listed FatPipe’s strengths as:
- FatPipe is one of the leading vendors for WAN link load balancing and has very good WAN path control capabilities
- FatPipe supports comprehensive application identification, classification and control capabilities
- FatPipe offers detailed network visibility and reporting capabilities
- The FatPipe solution is relatively easy to operate, as all functions are integrated onto one platform, and managed with a single high level user interface
- FatPipe has a good range of commonly used WAN optimization features, including substantial storage for caching
FatPipe is a pioneer in software defined networks for wide area connectivity, having developed patented products for software defined WANs over the last 10 years. FatPipe Networks invented the concept of using software to manage routers of any kind for routing data over wide area networks for corporate to branch office connectivity for reliable, redundant and application delivery management without BGP programming, or a box at the ISP. This enables a customer to deploy a self managed, self healing wide area network in any part of the world in about an hour per location, increasing network reliability of up to 99.999988%.
FatPipe MPSec, a patented technology, distributes data across multiple paths between two or more sites in a random order. MPSec, layers additional transmission security on to intra-corporate communications. Someone looking to capture data packets and copying intra-corporate communications off a wide area network will not receive all data packets and hence not receive complete information. In addition, with WAN optimization and de-duplication technology, the data transmitted over a network is minimized, and more difficult to decipher, making it the most secure transmission technology in the market. Encryption can be enabled or disabled per path if an outside device, such as a router, is also providing encryption. MPSec is available on the FatPipe® MPVPN® and the FatPipe® IPVPN products. Companies that need high security VOIP and email transmission can avail of certain proprietary features of FatPipe. FatPipe high security transmission features are used by embassies and corporations which require a high level of transmission security.
The most defining aspect of FatPipe technology is the seamless failover of sessions, whether it is VPN, VOIP, video or data from one line to another without dropping the sessions. When all the lines are available, then the data is load balanced and sent over multiple lines.
