Summary

UK SME offering network automation products that exploit the operational and cost efficiency of network infrastructure through technology-enabled dynamic changes. The company is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance with partners ranging from large venues and /or sports arenas with complex infrastructure to industrial entities wishing to have state-of-the-art network control.

Description

UK software company established in 2015, offer intelligent software automation tools that enable their clients to control, operate and monitor ICT networks in a simple, flexible, customisable and cost-effective way.

Networks are becoming more and more complex, requiring automation mechanisms to preserve businesses productivity and competitiveness. Nevertheless, enterprises may be reluctant to adopt network automation due to the threat of potential instability caused by legacy, including poor configurations and concealed or stranded services that often lead to costly and troublesome transformation projects. The UK SME addresses these problems with minimum costs and disruption by tackling network modernisation through a systematic approach. The approach starts with discovering and mapping a complete visualisation of the network’s true condition. Subsequently, the network’s is optimised to attain stability and higher performance levels. This is when the UK SME can deliver a resilient network by automating its operations and unlocking its power to the fullest.

In technical terms, the company's network automation technology provides key capabilities to monitor, control, and manage networks to drive up to 90% of operating expenses or expenditure, (OPEX) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) savings. It does so by maximising the efficiency of networks and automating daily operations with a service-driven orchestration. Their products are built around a state-of-the-art, network virtualisation software controller technology that supports disaggregated open platforms and hardware. This reduces the cost of building and operating a network by breaking vendor lock-in substantially. With integrated network slicing and splicing™ capabilities, the technology is able to create the aggregate topology of all sub-networks (including mixed local area network (LAN), wireless local area network (WLAN) and private long term evolution (LTE/5G networks) and provision end-to-end services across different interconnected domains in a simple and efficient way.

Examples of work the company has carried out include deploying products used to support the implementation of an industrial private LTE/5G network at a world-class research centre in the UK. The company has also deployed its orchestration software to deliver reliable and dynamically customised connectivity to thousands of visitors at a festival with a technology using network slicing and splicing. Moreover, the company has delivered its products to improve network agility and efficiency to the largest stadium in South West England with a 27000 people capacity. Finally, the company is a world leader in internet of things (IoT) platform integration through open source technology which enables flexible management of smart city network / IoT infrastructure.

The company seeks collaborations with partners to deploy their technology through commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Advantages and Innovations

Unlike conventional monitoring tools, the company's technology provides an easy and intuitive user interface to see a comprehensive view of the network topology which does not require expert knowledge. Other advantages and innovations include:

Display of the current network configuration and alerts for any such as new devices entering the network or lost connectivity

Support in locating rogue and faulty devices with quick action to automatically isolate them before they cause any problem

Provision of insights about the performance of the network via data collectors of useful metrics

Ability to visualise end-to-end connectivity regardless of network technology or vendor

Removal of dependency on vendor specific tools and certifications for day-to-day network operations

Overall, the company's technology ensures a consistent and relevant user experience to all people and devices connected to networks regardless of the type of access network they use. This enables network modernisation instead of expensive and disruptive network transformation (i.e. ‘rip and replace'), allowing both legacy and new technologies and devices to co-exist on the same network.

The technology improves productivity, efficiency, and network stability by enabling more to be done with a smaller team of IT managers instead of network or vendor specialists.
