FatPipe Networks

Deploying Mission Critical Web-based Applications Using SD-WAN

FatPipe Networks is the inventor of multi-line load balancing and failover technology—the foundation of SD-WAN. FatPipe first came up with the idea of SD-WAN back in 2000 when the company was trying to disrupt the monopoly of telco service providers. In order to monopolize the market, telecom line providers made the integration of data flows from another service provider nearly impossible for customers. This meant that companies did not have the ability to establish reliable connectivity as they could only use a single service provider for data flows. Should the line go down, then the entire connectivity was lost. After due consideration, FatPipe Networks decided to change the status quo by developing the SD-WAN software that made the integration of two data lines into a single line a reality, disrupting large cable monopolies. More importantly, the technology ensured round the clock connectivity and met the needs of today’s modern wide area network. “FatPipe Networks offers a diverse portfolio of SD-WAN solutions that work across wide market segments,” says Sanchaita Datta, President and CTO of the company and inventor of the technology.
