When You Talk And We Listen, Everyone Wins

Not long ago, we introduced the Dispersive™ Virtualized Network (DVN). Faster, more secure and more reliable than MPLS with VPN, this software-defined network costs considerably less than those platforms.
DVN runs on anything: Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, Android. It features multipath transmissions, dynamic path diversity, and military-grade encryption. And its bandwidth aggregation capability saves you money by enabling you to use several cable modems for more bandwidth and higher reliability than MPLS at a fraction of the cost.
Just install DVN software, configure it, and you’re off to the races. What’s not to like?
Well, we received a few orders, but we also received some interesting comments. In many cases, this wasn’t just feedback: it was pushback.
Turns out the last thing many companies wanted was another software system to install and maintain. Just give us a box, they suggested, something we can simply install and leave alone. And while you’re at it, make that box work at Layer 2 (Ethernet) instead of your VN’s Layer 3 (IP) capability.
Admittedly, this stung a bit. Our high hopes for a time were turned into high anxiety. However, after licking our wounds, we set out to lick the problem.
The result is our new Dispersive™ Edge Switch.
The Dispersive™ Edge Switch is a dedicated hardware device that provides all the benefits of our DVN without software configuration. Just plug the switch in, answer a couple of simple questions, and you’re up and running. The Dispersive™ Edge Switch features Layer 2 functionality with full support for Layer 2 multicast, L2 bridge domains, and native VLAN transport. And it comes in three flavors: small/home office, branch office, and enterprise.
Here’s the moral of the story. If you have an idea about how we can improve anything from our technology to marketing materials to sales presentations, let us know. At Dispersive, listening leads to learning, and learning leads to leading.
And if you’re interested in learning how the Dispersive™ Edge Switch can provide you more speed, security and reliability for less money than you’re paying now, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (844) 403-5852.
Dispersive announced last week it has developed a combined offering with ClearBlade, a pioneer and fast-growing Industrial IoT software and platform company delivering sophisticated connected systems for large enterprises. We’ve been working together in our labs and behind the scenes to bundle ClearBlade’s award-winning and widely deployed IIoT solutions (which support edge, cloud and enterprise systems, big data collection, analytics and real time control systems), to make it easier for customers to benefit from zero-touch commissioning, management, and zero-trust networking.
As Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementations continue to grow at a rapid pace, enterprise organizations, especially those in mission critical realms, are seeking full stack solutions which blend edge computing, cloud computing, and virtual networking that supports more sophisticated and distributed applications.
