Talking about the funding, Naganand Doraswamy, MD Ideaspring Capital said, “Lavelle Networks is working on an innovative product-based on SDN that makes it very easy for organisations to deploy their wide area networks. We are very excited to partner with the Lavelle Networks team who have deep experience in networking and help them scale their company.”
According to a company statement, on its platform all users, branches, and cloud networks are connected via an SDN gateway aggregating multiple WAN links at the branches, creating a single logical pipe. It also offers a user interface which can manage a 10-10000 node network with less than four operational steps.
All EDGE networks connected over this platform are also dynamically switched to a congestion-aware Internet overlay that can deliver consistent levels of network performance even when applications are on the public cloud or SaaS destinations. This steady Internet stream is needed for SaaS to work, as it is hosted on the cloud and needs constant connection with the web to physical host.
The startup has offices in Bengaluru, Singapore, Dubai, and California.
Its flagship service “Xpedition” provides ‘Private.Internet.Network-as-a-Service’ that connects users to applications anywhere, anytime. The applications could be in a branch, data centre or the cloud. The service aggregates multiple WAN links at the branches creating a single logical pipe.
