FatPipe Networks is the inventor and multiple patents holder of technology that provides the highest levels of WAN optimization, reliability, security, and bandwidth management. FatPipe's line of products cover an array of features and benefits for companies that run mission critical WAN applications over any type of infrastructure.
Customer benefits include up to seven-nines (99.999988%), WAN reliability, WAN redundancy, speed, and dynamic load balancing. Quality of Service (QoS), data compression, enhanced VPN security, as well as VPN encryption capabilities are also available.
FatPipe's core technology, router clustering, involves patented and patent-pending methods that enable high-speed data transfer through multiple lines, multiple ISPs, and backbones over WANs with seamless re-assembly of data streams. FatPipe technology affords companies automatic and dynamic failover of a downed data line due to a WAN component, line or service failure.
FatPipe Networks’ multi-patented router-clustering technology supports Wide Area Network (WAN) infrastructures by providing the highest levels of redundancy, reliability, speed, dynamic load balancing and additional security of IP traffic over any type of WAN.
FatPipe router-clustering devices aggregate any combination of DS3, T1, E3, E1, DSL, OCN, ISDN, wireless, and/or cable lines. FatPipe offers four different load balancing algorithms for customers to choose from to get the maximum benefit and utilization of all the lines. Customers have the flexibility to work with any type of WAN, creating a system that load balances among multiple managed or CPE VPNs, while still being compatible with Internet based VPNs. Companies can support their private and public wide area networks, even aggregating multiple private and public networks together without BGP or any equipment at the provider end.
Customers can even combine private and public lines, providing FatPipe gives customers the confidence and peace of mind that data lines will remain up at all times regardless of router, ISP, line, or backbone failures.
FatPipe Networks can further enhance your Wide Area Network with its optimization products, FatPipe Quality of Service (QoS) and FatPipe Kompressor. Each are sold separately as networking devices or can be enabled from FatPipe router-clustering products that support one or both products.
FatPipe QoS optimizes the efficiency of networks by providing tools that control congestion and prioritize data flow up to ten levels. FatPipe QoS provides granular control over how IP traffic transmits across your network, helping to control WAN costs. One can reduce bandwidth requirements and bottlenecking issues by allocating bandwidth to specific business applications and control recreational traffic via FatPipe QoS.
FatPipe Kompressor increases network capacity up to three times by compressing packet payload and eliminating redundant data traffic over a WAN. (A full T1/1.5 mbps = 4.5 mbps or more with Kompressor). Kompressor significantly increases a network’s throughput without having to upgrade data line connections (e.g.: from DSL to a T1), bringing significant cost savings to the customer immediately.
FatPipe Networks specializes in providing reliability for all types of wide area networks. Its router-clustering products provide intelligent and dynamic redundancy and high-availability for data transmission over private and/or public networks.
It dynamically balances load over two or more connections, and will redirect traffic to available lines should one fail due to a hardware or service component failure.
FatPipe also offers dual and hot-swappable power supplies; and unit failover and remote failover options are available for additional reliability and continuity. FatPipe clients may choose a unit failover and/or a remote location failover scenario. Unit failover allows the end user to setup the primary unit to failover to a secondary unit, where they are both located at the customer premises. The Remote Failover option, called Site Failover, is implemented by companies to support or enhancing their contingency/disaster recovery planning.
FatPipe Networks has a suite of standard and add-on features that help you secure data transmission over Wide Area Networks. Standard features include Policy Routing tools that give you the ability to allow or deny traffic using policy rules, and FatPipe MultiPath Security (MPSec), which provides an additional layer of security over IPSec. Feature add-ons include an IPSec utility called FatPipe VPN and FatPipe VPN Site Failover, a feature that allows you to failover VPN traffic from one site to a Disaster Recovery site. FatPipe also makes available FatPipe SpamPolice, a device that filters out spam and email viruses.
FatPipe Policy Routing tools for inbound and outbound traffic allow you, among other things, to allow or deny traffic based on rules that you create. This feature is available on all FatPipe router clustering products.
FatPipe’s MPSec, a patented security feature, transmits data in several permutations and combinations between offices utilizing multiple lines in a network, which makes it harder to sequentially trap data flow and decrypt the information in the correct order. The result is increased security of data transmission of sensitive information. FatPipe MPSec is a standard feature of MPVPN, IPVPN, and Symphony.
FatPipe VPN, an IPSec add-on feature, provides security using 3DES or AES to encrypt your data transmission. It can create IPSec tunnels between sites and between a main site and "road warriors." (All FatPipe products are also compatible with other encryption devices using 3DES or AES). FatPipe VPN is available as an add-on feature to WARP, MPVPN and Symphony products.
VPN Site Failover enables failover of VPN traffic between branch office(s), main office and disaster recovery sites, utilizing all lines available at each site. The servers can be located in geographically separate locations and have identical or similar information in both main office and in disaster recovery site. This feature is mainly for companies with disaster recovery sites. (Note that it requires that the customer must already have the FatPipe VPN client). This feature is available as an add-on feature to MPVPN.
FatPipe SpamPolice is an anti-spam and anti-virus device that sorts through emails before it hits your email server. It uses up to 20 analyzers to identify spam and viruses, eliminating the viruses and guaranteeing the spam, only passing "good" email to your Inbox. One can view all quarantined spam, and can define spam parameters per user. SpamPolice is sold as a separate unit from FatPipe router clustering devices.
