Mode operates the world’s highest-performing software-defined core network (SD-CORE), built around a real-time network control breakthrough. Mode was co-founded by two Cornell computer scientists widely recognized for their discovery of the characteristic equations that define modern packet-switched networks, and their subsequent implementation of a mathematically optimal routing system, Mode HALO. Mode Core powers SD-WAN, Cloud Access, Unified Communications (UC), and Ultra Low Latency applications. Mode Core enhances any enterprise WAN by providing reliable, QoS connectivity in combination with cloud elasticity and business-internet pricing. Mode is based in San Francisco, and backed by GV, NEA and the NSF.
Business Needs a New Backbone
The internet isn’t reliable enough for mission-critical business, or for applications that require low latency like UC. In fact, 99.5% of latency variance happens in the core (first + middle miles). Hardware-defined private networks like MPLS are very reliable, but inflexible and costly. Businesses need the reliability and QoS of MPLS, but as a flexible, affordable cloud service.
The Promise of SD-CORE
SD-CORE brings the value of software-defined infrastructure to the network core. The ideal SD-CORE is a carrier-grade global network purely built using software components. It must offer customers control, agility, flexibility, and elasticity – while remaining affordable. This isn’t possible without replacing the way networks route data with something much better.
