Kentik announced a partnership with PacketFabric, a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform.

PacketFabric’s enterprise and service provider customers can now take advantage of Software Driven Networking (SDN) to enable quick and easy Virtual Connection (VC) for more secure, reliable data forwarding to Kentik’s powerful network traffic and performance analytics.

For organizations operating within strict data regulations, as well as those who place a high value on data security, exporting any form of data to an external platform requires dedicated, private access. Kentik’s partnership with PacketFabric is a way to address that data challenge for organizations aiming to achieve real-time network visibility for network performance and, ultimately, to maintain optimal customer experience. Through the joint effort, enterprises and service providers can remotely interconnect with Kentik using a virtual PNI via PacketFabric’s network services. All that is needed is a connection to a local PacketFabric Point of Presence (PoP), and PacketFabric currently offers network services from over 150 PoP locations in the United States and Europe.

“Our partnership with Kentik is a testament to our shared goal of providing highly scalable networking solutions for enterprises and service providers globally,” said Chad Milam, President and Chief Operating Officer at PacketFabric. “Along with Kentik, we anticipate that our collaboration will unlock the reliability and security our customers need in order to address critical network visibility challenges.”

“For enterprises and service providers that seek a PNI to Kentik but don’t have network facilities physically located with one of Kentik’s SaaS locations, private network interconnect is an excellent alternative, and PacketFabric is one of the most convenient and cost-effective software-defined interconnection options on the market,” said Avi Freedman, CEO at Kentik. “With a focus on providing high scalability for its customers, PacketFabric is an ideal partner for us. Together, we’re enabling a direct, reliable, and secure way for more organizations across the globe to send data to Kentik’s platform and gain powerful network visibility and actionable insights.”

PacketFabric virtual peering is generally available for Kentik customers using Kentik’s US SaaS platform.
