Internet Network and Technologies


Our approach to the Internet Network and Technologies

As more and more services are migrating to the Internet, overall Internet traffic is becoming huge. As a consequence, advanced architectures are required to deliver online video (with CDN and/or P2P) or software and SaaS products (through cloud computing) with a certain level of quality of service, reliability and security. They are also a key element to develop sustainable and profitable business models.

Those advanced architectures are currently deployed in the open Internet but can also be deployed in ISP networks, especially as managed services, as telcos are looking for new revenue streams. Numerous tools and solutions can help ISPs to handle congestion, to optimize traffic consumption or to comply with various laws (piracy, child pornography, etc…), but also to provide segmented end-user offerings based on volume or quality of service. All these initiatives need to be put in perspective with the Net Neutrality debate.
