Ericsson Teams With SD-WAN Startup Mode to Build an SD-Core Network
July 02, 2018 / Sue Marek
A San Francisco-based networking startup scored a partnership with Ericsson to deliver what it is calling a software-defined core (SD-Core) network to enterprises. Mode, which earlier this month emerged from stealth mode, says its routing technology offers a new approach to SD-WAN that can intelligently shift traffic in milliseconds and dynamically adjust to network changes and traffic flows. The company was founded by two Cornell computer scientists, Nithin Michael and Kevin Tang, who developed the Mode Halo routing technology. Mode Halo is used to create an SD-Core to give enterprises private network reliability and quality of service that they can then combine with SD-WAN and last-mile internet.
