Enhancing Public Safety and Emergency Response with Software-Defined Networking

In the realm of public safety and emergency response, robust and efficient communication systems are of vital importance. The advent of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is proving to be transformative to how we approach critical communications architecture, management, and operations. By decoupling the control plane from the data plane and centralizing control in software-based controllers, SDN simplifies network management and enables rapid adaptation to changing business needs.

PEAKE, a leader in mission-critical communications for public safety, emergency management, military, and enterprise clients, is working directly with vendors of cutting edge hardware and software technologies to provide cater-built secure and reliable communications solutions that utilize SDN and virtual network overlays.

Optimized Connectivity

In the pursuit of uninterrupted connectivity, PEAKE's approach to blended connectivity and network simplification holds significant promise. This involves a combination of hardware and software that work together to intelligently combine diverse bandwidth sources into a single cohesive connection and create a simplified Layer-2 connection between nodes. Communication degradation or loss experienced by individual underlying links is automatically compensated for in real-time drastically increasing network reliability and performance. PEAKE leverages a strategic concurrent combination of LEO/GEO satellite, LTE/5G cellular, Ethernet/fiber ISP, and cloud-to-edge connectivity to provide significantly higher throughput and resiliency than any single link or failover configurations. 

Efficient Secure Data Flow

Data integrity and efficient transfer are paramount in critical scenarios. PEAKE's cloud-to-edge connectivity strategy ensures seamless data flow between centralized cloud resources, edge devices, and on-premises equipment. This synergy is crucial for prompt decision-making, streamlined operations, and effective emergency responses. SDN enables this data orchestration by providing abstraction layers that separate the logical network from the physical infrastructure to increase overall network control and flexibility. The added capabilities of micro-segmentation and policy-based automation push SDN solutions far beyond what is obtainable by traditional network infrastructures.
