Bristol open networking solutions company receives major investment
Zeetta Networks, a spin-out company from Bristol University’s High Performance Networks group (HPN), is an internationally renowned team for their expertise in software-defined networking and network virtualisation, which has now received £1.25 mn. to commercialise the University’s software-defined networking technology to smart enterprises and Internet of Things (IoT), the University reports.
Zeetta breaks vendor-lock-ins using a unique open networking platform based on industry-standard hardware and powerful orchestration software – named NetOS®– which manages, automates and monitors the whole network while significantly reducing its costs. Zeetta markets NetOS® to service providers and enterprises to help them reduce their network costs while improving network scalability and flexibility.
NetOS® offers a “USB-like”, plug-n-play management of different types of connected network devices and enables the construction of virtual “network slices”, for example separate logically-isolated sub-networks for the deployment of business-to-business or business-to-consumer services, such as Ultra HD wireless video distribution, city-wide Wi-Fi, IoT and other applications.
The funding, which is being provided by existing investor IP Group plc and new investor, Breed Reply, means that Zeetta can accelerate its growth plans significantly, enabling the company to expand its commercial and technical teams and to target new markets.
