Sanctum Networks

Delivering a fully programmable control plane solution
for your software defined access and on premise networks

About Sanctum

Sanctum’s goal is unprecedented access network optimization and control extending into customers’ home, SOHO and SMB network environments. Leveraging cloud-controlled visibility into customers’ device and application service delivery that works with today’s already-deployed access network equipment and home/SOHO/SMB gateways, Sanctum enables Service Providers to deliver compelling end-to-end customer experiences and dramatically shortened time-to-market for new customer offerings. Sanctum’s core strengths are development and implementation of next generation applications in the domains of Cloud Computing, Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and cloud-scale automated data analysis to enable service assurance and intelligent automated issue resolution, specifically applied to the challenge of deep visibility into and optimization of home/SOHO/SMB customer device and application service delivery.

Our expertise blends cutting edge engineering abilities and deep customer understanding essential to delivering world class user experience. Our engineering teams comprise a unique skills and knowledge portfolio that can rapidly close the user-service gap . We take pride in being pioneers of building the worlds first SDN Stack for CPE platforms to drive the next gen of networks.

Solution Architecture

Everything begins from visibility: See, Know, Act. Sanctum Networks’ Jupiter solution makes every element in the access network visible, including devices in customers’ home/SOHO/SMB network environments. Jupiter efficiently collects real time service data to gain end-to-end visibility of customer device and application service delivery. Leveraging this unprecedented visibility, Jupiter enables superior customer support, self-care, and automated intelligent optimization of network and home/SOHO/SMB gateway settings. Jupiter uses cloud scale analytics to close the gap between identifying or predicting an on-premise device or application service delivery problem and figuring out the best automated resolution actions. Jupiter’s deep understanding of customer device and application usage empowers Service Providers with data-driven customer insights not possible with today’s networks, tools and processes and enables Service Providers to increase customer relevance.

Jupiter is last-mile access agnostic (cable, xDSL, Docsis,fiber) and is designed for today’s already-deployed multi-vendor access network equipment and home/SOHO/SMB COTS gateways – it does not require the deployment of any new specialized on premise gateway devices. Its visibility into home/SOHO/SMB networks, including Wi-Fi, delivers valuable capabilities such as automated connectivity troubleshooting and resolution, customer-specified application QoS prioritization, and reporting traffic patterns to inform decisions on device and application access timing and priorities. Additionally, Jupiter can securely extend customers’ environments via Layer 2 to value-added cloud services such as parental controls and storage-as-a-service.

Jupiter is a resilient, highly secure service integration platform based on an open architecture which has been specifically architected to enable the enterprise and service provider to optimize their networks for voice, video and unified communications. Jupiter provides you with full visibility of your entire network topology through a control plane design, which unlike traditional SDN deployments, benefits from an intelligence harvesting capable agent that can be dispatched to any programmable CPE, switch, server or NIC.

Time-to-market for innovative new services is critical for Service Providers to strengthen competitiveness. To that end, Jupiter is an OpenStack-based open architecture environment that enables rapid development, prototyping and deployment of new service offerings so that Service Providers can leverage Jupiter’s deep insight into customer device and application service delivery to rapidly bring to market compelling customer offerings.

Jupiter's real uniqueness and true value is in its ability to distribute itself as a virtual SDN controller to localize control points in the network. Built specifically to understand the affinities that exist between Data Centre resources, Jupiter offers a unified user interface that integrates complete work flows from definition to topology discovery and virtual appliance/application provisioning.

Sanctum Networks helps service providers and DC operators to deliver and control SLA assurance and traffic engineering through a deeply granular core-to-edge QoS visibility and optimization.

As services become more dynamic and evolve towards SDN architectures Jupiter helps controllers and virtual network functions to dynamically program and adapt themselves to a per flow level of control.

Some key issues Jupiter can resolve to support the next gen data centres include:

  • Network Connectivity : At the core of Jupiter is a sophisticated routing engine with full support of IPv4 and IPv6 dynamic routing protocols (BGP Multipath, OSPF, RIP, Multicast) and multiple tunneling protocols.
  • Firewall Protection : Features IPv4/IPv6 stateful packet inspection to intercept and inspect network activity and protect critical data. virtual firewalls with capabilities that include stateful failover, zone- and time-based firewalling, and peer-to-peer filtering.
  • IPv6 Compatibility : Software-based routing and security solution with proven IPv6 functionality and interoperability, ensuring a simplified migration path from IPv4 to IPv6 and a future-proof investment.
  • Administration and Authentication : Managed through a familiar network-centric Command Line Interface (CLI), a Web-based GUI, or external management systems using the Jupiter Remote Access API. Radius support planned.
  • Monitoring and Reporting : Complete logging and diagnostics information that can be monitored using industry-standard tools such as SNMP, Wireshark.
  • Secure Connectivity : Organizations can establish secure site-to-site VPN tunnels with a standards-based IPsec VPN between two or more Jupiters or any IPsec VPN gateway. Jupiter also provides network access to remote users via SSL-based OpenVPN functionality with a dynamic client installation for multiple operating systems (OS’s). In addition, they support Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) and the ability to represent policy-based IPsec tunnels as virtual interfaces (Virtual Tunnel Interface, or VTI).
  • Traffic Management : Provide a wide variety of QoS-queuing mechanisms that can be applied to inbound and outbound traffic for identifying and prioritizing applications and traffic flows.
  • High Availability : Mission-critical networks can deploy Jupiter for high availability and system redundancy.
