Why should you choose DriveNet?
DriveNet is a fast-growing software enterprise that builds networks and provides services to the communication service providers and cloud providers in a comprehensive way to build networks that are cost-effective and totally detached from network growth which in turn reduces the complexity and increases the overall profit of the company.
The primary goal of the founding members of DriveNet was to transform the way networks are built and operated. The vision of the founding members was crystal clear about the company. They had a foolproof plan for what they wanted to serve their customers and how they were going to do that.
At first, they thought it should be software-based, as almost everything these days is software based.
Secondly, it must be scalable, because they know that their customers are service providers and they require the best networks, so it must be scalable to attract their customers to choose DriveNet.
The third one is an open architecture, it must be open because they want to give their customers freedom of choice to choose or select.
Lastly, the fourth one is to think about simple operations. In short, it is a software-based, scalable, open architecture, and simple operation, this is the basic fundamental of the company on which it works and offers its services.
The company introduces itself as it builds hyper-scale network clouds. Network clouds are the combination of several existing technologies including a white box, network virtualization, and cloud-native software. The reason behind why they wanted to transform the way how networks are built is the service provider’s complexity.
Networks are complicated. Why did they start building cloud-based networks? They analyzed the process of network providers like they have separate networks for each service making it complex to operate and charge huge costs to maintain that level of operation. so to make it simple and easy to operate they decided to do what they wanted to do for their customers.
What is Cloud Networking?
Cloud networking is a sort of IT framework in which some or all of a company’s network power and resources are provided in a public or private cloud platform, managed internally or by a service provider, and accessible only on demand.
To provide the best cloud services the cloud service providers need the best cloud network and service, provider. What does the cloud service provider do? They do provide services based on clouds. Basically, the process enables connectivity between resources.
