SDN-based gateway router enables network connections on demand
Spark Integration Technologies, Inc. (Vancouver, BC) announced the release of version 4 of its Distrix Gateway Router. Based on open software-defined network (SDN) technology, Distrix 4 adds an array of features that extend the software's ability to dynamically create highly secure connections across local- and wide-area networks. A Distrix Gateway forms a virtual network overlay that runs on top of existing networks, making them simple, secure and resilient. The solution also enables organizations to quickly and cost-effectively implement advanced networks by refining rather than replacing existing infrastructure. Distrix 4 adds to this gateway router with:
- Extended monitoring visibility into network flows.
- A new service-controller application to effectively configure and control flows
- An extended RESTful application programming interface (API) to allow external applications complete dynamic control over network service creation and monitoring.
