A novel Industrial Internet of Things network built to fulfil the high demanding needs of security, reliability, and advanced functionalities of critical IoT networks. Edge SDN is built around applications, keeps IoT devices secured and always reachable exploiting network functionalities that isolate and monitor every communication between applications as a shield for external and internal threats.
A novel business-centric user interface allows an easy network configuration and management, by specifying the goals of the network while leaving the task of translating them into policies to the network orchestrator. Security, performance and low management effort are key points in the Edge SDN network.
Every device and application is isolated from the rest of the network. Every packet sent through the network is identified and validated before being forwarded to a micro-segmented network. Host isolation realizes single isolated paths for each data flow creating a secure network environment. This results in a micro-segmentation where all data flows are isolated from each other to achieve maximum security.
We take network security seriously, Edge SDN is compliant with the IEC 62443, the strict Industrial security standard. Host isolation, micro-segmentation enhanced with a state of the art Intrusion Prevention System and port-based Network Access Control mechanism are the building blocks of effective industrial security. Protecting your critical infrastructure is the primary goal you can achieve with the Edge SDN.
Simplicity is one of the main purposes of the Edge SDN. Every configuration and management activities are performed with a high degree of network automation, by specifying the objective of the communication between two or more peers, the network translates it into policies that can be automated and consistently applied across the network. Our simple user interface will guide you through the creation of network intents with just a few clicks. Just focus on your business purpose and the Edge SDN will do the entire network configuration activity for you.
We empowered the Edge SDN with a novel semantic network capability. By exploiting two new Service and Instance tags added to data flows, Edge SDN is able to create network policies based on single hosts and applications requirements, defining micro network layers in which apply different policies and network functionalities. This patented proprietary technology is a powerful add-on of the Edge SDN.
To empower your network with management simplicity and security functionalities there is no need to start from scratch, but just add some Edge SDN nodes in those places where network becomes critical. Edge SDN is based only on international network standards avoiding any technology lock-in, staff retraining, or certification. To achieve the maximum reuse of current infrastructure just merges your network with an innovative programmable one, it is as simple as that.
The Edge SDN node comes with a set of built-in Network Functions Virtualization features.
All network functionalities are simply deployable by means of a network orchestrator with a simple and effective user interface.
Detects and prevents any threat before it becomes an issue. Edge SDN node analyses allowed or forbidden network traffic to detect and prevent vulnerability exploits. Keeping your network monitored is a mandatory task for a safe and secured network. The default IPS is based on SNORT but you can use any other available IPS.
For secure and fine-grained access control at the edge, a security guard to protect your network is needed. Each device must be identified and authenticated before accessing the network, avoiding any forbidden and anonymous activity
Simply tests hosts, links, or applications to monitor their status. If any failure occurs the programmable features of the Edge SDN can help you to create backup actions to preserve the integrity of the network.
Once a link is broken, traffic can be forwarded to any other active link to find an alternative path to the destination. This protects your network from any hardware fault, preserving operative and business continuity
Creates a virtual host as a means to efficiently relay incoming network traffic across a group of servers. Acts as data forwarder sitting in front of your servers and routing client requests across multiple destinations according to their status. This results in efficient use of resources that maximizes speed and capacity utilization and ensures that no one server is overworked, which could degrade performance.
Creates your forwarding strategy where network traffic heading to a destination can occur over multiple best paths with different priorities. It can substantially increase bandwidth and network reliability by load-balancing traffic over multiple paths.
Keeping as close as possible configuration mechanism to your host, helps you to create isolation network portions. This results in different IoT realms where Edge SDN control directly any host and peers that face access network.
