The network has extended beyond enterprise to become the backbone of how society interacts today. Understanding the data flows between the provider and the consumer and how best to address latency, bandwidth constraints, and lossy networks requires more than networking experience. Aypeks Consulting has expertise in designing and developing enterprise networks (bandwidth), mobile, ad-hoc tactical networks (lossy), and satcom networks (latency). The next generation of networking, Software Defined Networks (SDN), provides a new level of network agility and flexibility but also requires an in depth knowledge of both networking and applications to design. Networks will also require encrypted network transports like the one defined by NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program using NSA Suite B ciphers. Our knowledge of networking, coupled with our cyber security and systems engineering expertise, provide the experience to develop the next generation of flexible, secure networks.
