Fatpipe: Uninterrupted Wide Area Networks Made Possible
Date: Monday , November 01, 2010
Every year the corporate world loses millions of dollars due to poor quality networks. Hence, it has become an imperative to have a solution which provides “reliable, redundant wide area network capabilities.” Ragula Bhaskar, President and CEO of FatPipe Networks was quick to realize the opportunity and went on to create products which helped organizations obtain highly redundant and fast Internet/WAN access, as well as high security allowing such corporations to implement intranets, thin client, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and other Web-based applications.
“In the technology communication space, we saw the need for redundant networks whereby companies don’t have to depend on one single carrier. To bolster our patent on this line, we came up with more inventions. Today we have around seven patents along with 130 technology claims,” says Bhaskar. Founded in 1991, FatPipe’s core technology involves patented (seven issued), and patents-pending methods of transmitting data over multiple lines either over the Internet or with direct point-to-point connections like MPLS and frame relay, without any cooperation from the Internet Service Provider (“ISP”).
FatPipe enables companies to obtain low cost, redundant and fast Internet access, allowing them to implement Intranets, e-commerce strategies, VPNs, and utilize application specific servers over the Internet or WAN. The company’s network solutions can be seen to be more beneficial for companies who are into outsourcing, offshoring, remote management, as they have to build the trust among the clients that networks will never be compromised despite the distance. Especially, in countries like India when the ISVs’ networks are unreliable Fatpipe’s solution helps third world networks to be transformed into first world networks.
Companies use Fatpipe’s multi-location software to connect their offices around the world via multiple data-carriers locally available. With its advantage on the features FatPipe was able to gain customers like the FBl and the U.S. Supreme Court, and over 1000 other customers, with over 6000 units installed worldwide.
