128 Technology (Burlington, MA), known for its Session Smart Routing platform, on Dec. 12 announced a partnership with Snet Systems, a network integrator headquartered in Seoul, Korea, to offer a secure managed SD-WAN service, called SWAN, powered by 128 Technology’s Session Smart Router. The partnership enables Snet Systems to offer a comprehensive network infrastructure service to help enterprise customers drive business success quickly in complex IT environments.

Snet Systems is the latest managed service provider to join the 128 Technology Managed Service Solution Partner Program, which enables service providers to create new revenue streams by leveraging 128 Technology’s 128T Networking Platform.

Conventional, hardware-based SD-WAN offerings rely on tunneling protocols like IPSEC, which add complexity and inefficiency to networks and cause application performance to break down. 128 Technology notes that its 128T Networking Platform is tunnel-free, meaning that network traffic is more easily routed to better pathways when there is more network congestion. 128 Technology says its agile WAN connectivity is built for today’s business applications and services, and includes enhanced performance and security compared to competing hardware-based approaches to SD-WAN.

Snet Systems has two decades of industry experience consulting, designing, establishing and maintaining network infrastructure across platforms such as unified communications (UC), data centers, cloud services, Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile networks. Key benefits of Snet System’s partnership with 128 Technology, as cited by the firms, include better connectivity for mission-critical applications, enhanced security based on a “Zero-Trust” model, reduced operations cost by eliminating firewalls and VPNs and by reducing cloud rental costs, reasonable service pricing and better network functionality for edge locations.

“Snet Systems has always been focused on building technology solutions that exceed enterprise requirements for next generation network infrastructures. When searching for a partner, our team was convinced by 128 Technology’s radical approach to session awareness and session state,” said Inchul Yoo, Chief Technology Officer, Snet System. “We are excited to partner with 128 Technology to leverage the 128T Networking Platform solution to enhance our customers’ productivity, bandwidth efficiency and profitability with our SWAN solution.”

“128 Technology is built on enabling the agility and flexibility that come with software-based routing. We thrive when we partner with those who share our vision of next generation networking,” said Kaz Kuroda, Managing Director APAC, 128 Technology. “Snet Systems’ extensive array of products and services meets the vast opportunities in the marketplace. Partnering with 128 Technology will benefit its customers by helping future-proof their networks with a truly software-centric approach to SD-WAN.”
