Envistacom, XipLink Work on Transport Virtualization Initiative
Envistacom revealed on Sept. 23 that the company has teamed up with XipLink to deliver Space Communications Protocols Specification (SCPS) Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Acceleration, Wire Area Network (WAN) optimization, and related networking technologies to customers through Envistacom’s Transport Virtualization Ecosystem (TVE).
WAN optimization is an adjacent networking application that can be incorporated onto non-proprietary, virtualization-enabled, Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) hardware to enhance network infrastructures without the need for additional space, power, or cooling. Delivering adjacent applications through Envistacom’s TVE can help users to enhance their deployed networks without adding additional hardware appliances.
“Several years ago, we started moving XipOS software from dedicated appliances to virtualized solutions in order to provide ultimate flexibility for our customers,” said Jack Waters, CEO of XipLink. “Envistacom has parlayed this virtual capability into a powerful COTS hardware offering while also leveraging solutions like XipLink Virtual (XV) into the Transport Virtualization Ecosystem for a convenient marketplace for Federal and Commercial customers. We are excited to be one of the initial partners with Envistacom to ensure modern day delivery methods to the marketplace.”
