In an exemplary use case, CohesiveFT customer Geezeo uses VNS3 to direct and manage traffic with the insight and control Geezeo needs in the US finical services industry. Geezeo CTO James Elwood uses VNS3 to “manage all of our connections from a single control point and offer reliable, manageable, and secure tunnels.”
In the Datacentre ICT Networking Product of the Year role, VNS3 frees enterprise cloud computing users from the underlying hardware and geography constraints. By defining networks in software, VNS3 allows network designers to operate, control, and configure networks without physical access to hardware. Enterprises of all sizes benefit from cloud computing economies of scale without the cost or security risks.
To demonstrate the cloud networking capabilities, another use case used VNS3 to bridge Africa’s splintered telecom markets with secure overlay networks. The VNS3 customer, an SMS bridge operator based in West Africa, was able to bring a remarkably cost effective cloud-only SMS integration service to sub-Saharan Africa without costly physical infrastructure or network hardware. The network solution from VNS3 enabled our customer to offer better SMS connectivity between end users on disparate networks and opened new revenue opportunities for brand SMS advertisers hoping to reach end SMS customers.
