Corsa Technology is high performance infrastructure connecting the world’s biggest networks simply and securely.
Our ISP, SP, IX, CDNs, hosting providers and NREN customers worldwide rely on our solutions to dramatically improve new service delivery, augment security, increase productivity and reduce networking operational expenses.
Network architects find themselves constrained by the limitations of networking designs and networking equipment that do not easily scale for size or speed, are difficult to configure and are tied to specific vendors’ proprietary implementations. At Corsa, we believe in open programmable networking (which is what we mean when we say SDN) as the path to removing these constraints. Our SDN switching, routing, and mitigation equipment is based on a cleverly designed architecture which assures our platforms move traffic without hitting limitations.
Our internet-scale offering of advanced SDN features with high precision flow forwarding is what sets our products apart. How we interact with our customers, to enable the best possible networking or security solution, is icing on the cake.
