Mode for UC Providers
Worried about building your own global UC core?
Mode SD-CORE is a cloud private network that lets Unified Communications providers extend the reach of their own core network, or obviate the need to build one. It delivers instant, global reliability, and low-latency/jitter performance.
Accelerate time-to-market and focus on core Unified Communications business
Zero CAPEX and costs of hundredths of a cent per video connection minute
Instant, global high availability with latency near the physical limit and low jitter
UCaaS is growing rapidly, but the biggest threat to this growth is inconsistent end-user performance due to an unreliable internet backbone. Many UCaaS providers have had little choice but to build their own private core — costly, far outside their core competency, and a drag on the speed of global expansion.
At Mode, we believe UCaaS providers don't really want to be network operators. They need an affordable, reliable, global connectivity option that works side-by-side with their own private core, or obviates the need to build one in the first place. This core must be as flexible and elastic in setup and use as the cloud itself. We built Mode SD-CORE as a carrier-grade software-defined global private network that leverages our fundamental networking discovery to offer QoS, MPLS-like availability, and SLA guarantees — delivered at a business-internet price point.
Mode was founded by two Cornell computer scientists who — for the first time — derived the dynamical system equations that define all packet-switched networks, and designed a distributed, optimal feedback control system we call Mode HALO. We implement this discovery as a fully autonomous, global virtual private network to realize multiples of throughput performance, and the near elimination of latency variance. Mode SD-CORE is the world's highest-performing SD-CORE.
Mode SD-CORE supports an unprecedented UC experience, with superior voice and video quality (minimized jitter, latency, and packet loss), and non-stop uptime. When problems arise, Mode offers full application and user visibility and metrics for easy troubleshooting.
Mode SD-CORE provides guaranteed elastic bandwidth via service prioritization, traffic shaping, and bandwidth reservation algorithms. Mode HALO ensures QoS for all locations, even those with poor-quality internet links.
Mode SD-CORE offers seamless integration with UCaaS vendors, without any new hardware or software. Mode SD-CORE complements existing UCaaS core networks, or obviates the need to build one. Mode SD-CORE gives UCaaS providers instant global presence across the world's major business centers.
The Mode orchestration system enables the spin up of a global private network in under 60 seconds, and the ability to micro-segment private networks by customer, application, etc.
As a complement to an existing UCaaS core, or as an holistic alternative, Mode SD-CORE delivers instant, global UCaaS reliability at a business-internet price point.
Global software overlay fabric built using carrier-grade software components: bypasses the unreliability of the public Internet, and delivers consistent latencies and negligible packet loss for predictable application performance to global users
Automatic routing control based on real-time network metrics — link utilization, latency, jitter and packet loss — to deliver an optimal video and audio experience
A distributed network of multi-tenant routers and gateways deployed by Mode and UCaaS provider partners support optimal and high-performance connectivity UCaaS applications
Full end-to-end solution integration with leading UCaaS vendors
Mode Routers and gateways are designed for high availability and service guarantees, with scalable and redundant capacity automatically orchestrated
Mode SD-CORE is operated in highly secure datacenters: data in rest and transit is always encrypted with end-to-end IPsec tunnels
No additional client or agent is required for accessing the UCaaS application, and traffic is redirected to Mode SD-CORE with a simple configuration change which is fully automated
On-demand network bandwidth scaling: network adapts to changing application demands
Deploy a global WAN in minutes: Mode self-service portal enables zero touch deployment of networks that connect branches, clouds and SaaS applications
Not just edge visibility but full core visibility into application and flow level metrics, with full provider and enterprise-wide visibility into WAN core performance and application usage and flows
End-to-end monitoring and support
Fine QoS control for real-time applications like UC and Web conferencing
