Network-as-a-Service Provider — Algoblu
This IDC Vendor Profile offers an overview of an innovative company that uses its patented technology, Network Element Virtualization (NEV), to abstract and virtualize the network resources. Algoblu is a NaaS provider that offers ultralow-latency network and security services using fully virtualized end-to-end architecture.
The NEV can virtualize the underlying network resources using self-developed FPGA-based chip. For example, it can virtualize a physical port and create fine-grained granularized virtual ports. The scheduler and orchestrator software allocates the bandwidth to virtual ports and can increase or decrease the bandwidth for each port instantly.
Algoblu NEV technology allows network to be built hop by hop for an end-to-end connection using dedicated virtual port per customer per application, hence guarantees the ultralow latency for time-sensitive networks (TSN). The ability to provide SLA per dedicated virtual port and per application unlocks communications service providers' (SPs') monetization opportunity to provide premium services over their existing network, rather than just selling connectivity. These premier services could be latency, packet loss, or jitter-sensitive applications (e.g., virtual reality [VR], cloud gaming, ultra HD streaming/video).
The Algoblu NEV chip provides enhanced security because it uses TDMA to control network resource allocation and isolate different tenants or applications at any given time. It's a hardware implementation of micro-segmentation.
