FatPipe Networks Is Granted a 6th Patent Focusing on WAN/Internet Business Continuity Via Disparate Networks

Wednesday, September 03, 2008

FatPipe's Invention Allows for Dynamic Load Balancing and Automatic Failover of Packets Over Multiple Parallel Private and Public Networks for High Levels of WAN Fault Tolerance and Security

Salt Lake City, UT -- FatPipe Networks, the inventor and multiple patents holder of WAN optimization, redundancy and security products, announced today that it has successfully secured its sixth patent. The U.S. Patent No. 7,406,048 protects the "tools and techniques for directing packets over multiple parallel disparate networks, based on address and other criteria."

The invention helps companies who are utilizing point-to-point, frame relay or MPLS networks to achieve the highest level of reliability for Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity by aggregating data lines from private networks with public Internet lines using VPNs and/or other Internet-based networks. The patent protects the methods used to allow frame relay, MPSL and/or point-to-point networks to co-exist with VPN and other Internet-based networks for redundancy and the ability to failover from one disparate network to the other transparently.

The user may elect to use the technology to load balance data packets over two or more disparate WAN connections, and also have the automatic failover component in place, or treat one of the WANs as a backup that is used only when the primary network fails. The invention also allows for a transition from frame or point-to-point networks to Internet-based solutions in a graded fashion.

"FatPipe created the technology to provide innovative, low-cost solutions for businesses that require 'always-up' availability of their WANs for business continuity, without compromising the integrity or security of data transmissions," said Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D., President and CEO of FatPipe Networks.

FatPipe's intellectual property includes six U.S. Patents: No. 6,493,341; No. 6,253,247; No. 6,295,276; No. 6,775,235, No. 7,269,143, and U.S. Patent No. 7,406,048. FatPipe has several other patents, copyrights, trademarks, proprietary technologies and industry secrets pending. FatPipe Networks, MPSec, and MultiPath VPN are trademarks of FatPipe Networks in the U.S. and other countries. All other trademarks and registered trademarks are property of their respective owners.

Any other company that sells products that use similar methods may be infringing this patent or other patents owned by FatPipe Networks. FatPipe Networks will actively enforce the protection of its patents from companies that incorporate any of the patent claims' elements to the full extent of the law. Companies concerned about possible patent infringements can call Sanchaita Datta at FatPipe Networks.

About FatPipe Networks

FatPipe Networks is the inventor and multiple patents holder of technology that provides the highest levels Internet/Wide Area Network (WAN) reliability, fault tolerance, redundancy, security and acceleration. FatPipe's line of products cover an array of features and benefits for companies that run mission critical Internet/WAN applications over any type of infrastructure.

Customer benefits include up to seven-nines WAN redundancy, reliability, and speed; dynamic load balancing, Quality of Service (QoS), and additional security; as well as compression, and IPSec capabilities.

FatPipe technology empowers network administrators by giving them the tools they need to optimize their network using QoS, compression, policy routing, and security tools. Just as importantly, FatPipe is the world's most innovative creator of WAN redundancy technology, router clustering, which affords companies automatic and dynamic failover of a downed data line connection due to a WAN component or service failure.

FatPipe's core patented and patent-pending technology provides methods that enable high speed data transfer through multiple lines, multiple ISPs, and backbones over the Internet or other WANs with seamless re-assembly of data streams. FatPipe holds six patents for its security feature, MPSec, and for its Redundant Array of Inexpensive Lines (RAIL) technology, which aggregates data lines over multiple ISPs and backbones without BGP programming.
