Internet Tech Members with Out of State HQ Software as a Service (SaaS)


Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) has always been a myth — but a myth we’ve been relentlessly focused on making a reality.

And we’ve seen many valiant entrants — technologies and solutions delivering some of the key components of a successful NaaS framework. But never all.

Think about it. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) succeeded in shifting the focus from CapEx to a more flexible OpEx-based, pay-as-you-go model. Enterprise campus networks have never been able to fully adopt this approach. Today’s as-a-service models are a kluge of services, semi-neatly (and definitely not simply) packaged together and offered in bundles that can be consumed in a multi-tiered subscription model. It lacks the service performance as guaranteed by SaaS, it lacks the integrated security as delivered by SaaS, and it lacks the simple singular consumption model as delivered by SaaS.

The result? A network is still mired in a complexity that is costly and unsecure. We continue to drown in the sea of SKUs trying to figure out what hardware to purchase, trying to stay afloat on the latest software upgrade or security patch without impacting network performance, and are persistently at the mercy of hiring experts that understand the coding and configurations of 3 decades of layered, threaded, and thus complex infrastructure.

Our journey is all about a once-in-a-decade opportunity to create something disruptive – not just for the sake of disruption – but to create something that can resolve the insane complexity of networking and deliver simple access to a very reliable, extremely high-performance network. This journey began in 2018 with a shared vision between Pankaj Patel and Suresh Katukam who were joined by John Chambers and Sri Hosakote, making up Nile’s original founding team.

Achieving this vision necessitated bringing together the best and the brightest; a team of pioneers and visionaries in networking, security, and artificial intelligence.

Within four years the team built a new standard for the enterprise network, and what it truly means to be a Network as a Service.
