FatPipe Networks is Granted a 4th Patent for its IPVPN Router-Clustering Device

FatPipe Networks receives a patent that protects the tools and techniques used to direct IP packets over disparate networks -- providing increased speed, security and "seven-nines" redundancy -- via FatPipe IPVPN

Sep 10, 2004

FatPipe Networks™, the inventor of router clustering devices for reliable, redundant and fast Internet/Wide Area Network (WANs) connections, announced today that it has successfully secured its fourth patent. The US patent, number 6,775,235, is associated with FatPipe's IPVPN product, a router clustering device that is designed to provide fault tolerance, additional speed and security for any type or any combination of private and/or public WANs serving medium to large size companies that require these services for mission critical data transmission deployed over WANs.

The patent protects the methods and tools created by FatPipe that allow customers to direct IP packets over disparate networks while achieving the highest level of redundancy and speed of data transmission for their networks. The patented technology can load balance IP traffic by bonding two or more data connections of similar or dissimilar type for combined speed, and also provide automatic failover to available data lines should one fail due to a router, ISP, last mile or component failure.

"This patent is ground breaking in the world of IP WAN transmission, security, and control of data shared over private and public networks," commented Ragula Bhaskar, Ph.D., Founder, CEO and President of FatPipe Networks.

"We are the first to market an innovative and useful solution for companies that look to combine public and private networks without compromising security or reliability and availability of the network," said Sanchaita Datta, Co-Founder and CTO of FatPipe. Dr. Ragula Bhaskar and Sanchaita Datta are the inventors of FatPipe's router-clustering technology.

FatPipe owns three additional patents: 6,493,341, combining routers to increase concurrency and redundancy in external network access; 6,295,276, combining routers to increase concurrency and redundancy in external network access; and 6,253,247 system and method for transmitting a user's data packets concurrently over different telephone lines between two computer networks.

About FatPipe IPVPN

FatPipe IPVPN is the only product on the market that can bond disparate CPE based and/or remotely managed Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and private lines to provide the best reliability, redundancy, speed and security for data transmissions. Router aggregation is achieved without making changes to networking devices and does not require Border Gateway Protocol programming or ISP cooperation. The flexible functionality of IPVPN technology allows customers total redundancy and reliability of their corporate Internets by combining point-to-point lines with fully managed or unmanaged Internet based VPNs or MPLS services.
