Secure Enterprise Communications and Connect IoT/Industrial IoT Solutions with
APN Networks

A software solution for securely and efficiently networking devices and applications.

APN Routing and Security Software Components (APN-RSSC)

What it is

Software components that run on general purpose processors, interconnected to provide an overlay to its target network(s): Internet, WiFi network, LTE network, 5G network. The overlay is a zero-trust network that only routes encrypted packets through it, where the encryption is end-to-end from sender to receiver(s). The APN overlay network becomes a services delivery networking platform that implements routing and security functions that are not achievable using traditional IP networking. This facilitates delivering services in new, efficient , and cost-effective ways.

What APN provides

Network Management System to configure and manage the software routing components of the overlay network, to configure and manage the Rules and Policies that are used to implement the APN Micro-Segmentation solution for the network, and to view and manage Performance and Fault information for the network. The APN Network Management System can create and manage any number of separate overlay networks, each of which is a Virtual Private Network for the server applications and user devices that are authorized to connect to that network. APN provides a downloadable Software Application that allows device applications and server applications to access a particular overlay network. Services can be delivered in new, efficient, and cost effective ways, with specialized security and communications capabilities being provided to distributed IoT/IIoT applications.
