Software-driven and Feature-rich
ICC differs from other networking vendors because our solutions focus on the delivery of content not just connectivity. We use connectivity products (switches, controllers, gateways, etc.) as a medium through which to leverage our Packet Processing communication-focused software.
Traditional networking vendors focus on speeds and feeds, frequencies, bonding, stacking, and a veritable buffet of options to increase data throughput through their systems. However, limitations are always reached, parameters hit, and operational expenditures are eventually required to upgrade systems without demonstrating Return-on-Investment (ROI). Connectivity options are important but to enable better use of hardware we must shift our focus to the treatment of Content.
The need to manage contention between services becomes more important as the load on a network link increases. Content demand continues to exceed and create expanding contention for limited network resources. Therefore the need to increase packet processing capabilities without creating traffic failure increases in importance. Network utilization equals efficiency. To fill the links, and hence reduce the need to overprovision, QoS and Traffic Shaping is an important consideration.
