network Orchestrator
Communicate globally.
Connect locally.
Deploy our Software-defined networking (SDN) stack anywhere to build a secure and private connection to the PeerEdge® Fabric
Simplify the edge by strengthening the core.
Peeredge® Network Orchestrators instantly modernize how existing heterogenous networks connect to each other and the rest of the world.

Once plugged in, network and route intelligence is automatically exchanged between The Fabric and Network Orchestrators, without manual configuration.
The Future-proof solution for legacy networks.
Network Orchestrators are transport and environment neutral for unmatched flexibility.
Where they live:
  • Private Clouds
  • Bare Metal Hardware
  • Public Clouds
  • 46 Labs Managed Hosting
  • 46 Labs Edge Devices
Connectivity to the Fabric:
  • Existing WAN
  • Fabric Local loops
Where they participate:
  • Natively inside existing MPLS
  • Parallel to SD-WAN/SASE deployments
  • Inside public clouds
  • Attached to edge workloads
Turn spaghetti into
Enterprise network diagrams tend to resemble spaghetti, with lines going in all directions and workloads siloed. Orchestrators allow IT Administrators to replace the "spaghetti" with ordered layers, like lasagna. Each network exists independently and can be brought up across all Orchestrators, with all routing logic happening inside the Fabric
Scalable Privacy
The PeerEdge® Fabric enables thousands of Network Orchestrators to be deployed around the world privately, all with automated command and control from the Fabric Portal.
Vendor Neutral
Plug into and run on any IP-based network. VM living on a public network or private cloud, customer managed servers or 46 Labs Digital Infrastructure services.
Transport Neutral
Connect to the PeerEdge® Fabric using any transport method, including Fabric Local Loops, exiting Public internet, or datacenter cross-connects.
Protocol Neutral
Carry any IP protocol across up to 16 million logical networks, including layer-2 ethernet frames with VLAN's, Q-in-Q, MPLS, GRE, IPIP, FCoE, PPoE, etc.
Network Federation
Federate local networks anywhere in the world, with any provider, into any IP environment, Privately. Turning a wide-area-network (WAN) into a global local-area-network (LAN) instantly.
Cloud Management
Managed entirely through the Fabric Portal, network analytics and uptime data is used to automatically optimize performance across the entire connected enterprise, from anywhere in the world.
TEchnical details
PeerEdge® Network Orchestrators are designed to accelerate packet-based workloads on Managed Edge Devices, Managed Hosting, standard X86-based bare metal servers, public cloud hypervisors (AWS, GCP, Azure, etc) and private cloud hypervisors (VMware, Openstack, etc.). Abstracting packet acceleration outside of specialised hardware removes vendor lock-in and allows Fabric Orchestrators to be deployed deeper inside enterprise networks.

Packet Encapsulation

All PeerEdge® Fabric Facilities are interconnected using highly redundant private fiber links. Each Fabric Region is privately peered to 1000+ service provider networks and all global public cloud providers.

These interconnections allow The Fabric to be physically extended to remote locations using Fabric Local Loops without ever touching the public internet.

The Fabric is interconnected over the Internet using Voice Orchestrators or Network Orchestrators. These Orchestrators can be deployed inside existing enterprise environments, Managed Hosting or Managed Edge Devices.

Packet Acceleration

One of the key limitations for software-based routing stacks is OS kernel-level packet processing. Standard operating systems aren’t designed to process millions of packets per second or hundreds of gigabytes of throughput. This has historically been the territory of ASICs and specialised hardware, generally dominated by commercial network vendors. With the advent of VPP for packet processing and DPDK for direct access to network devices, OS-based limitations have been removed. Both VPP and DPDK are heavily used inside PeerEdge® Data .


All traffic exchanged between Network Fabric Extenders and The Fabric are encrypted using AES- based algorithms, which is accelerated using AES-NI instruction sets. Modern processor accelerate encryption workloads, without requiring a hardware encryption engine. Most cloud providers support AES-NI instruction sets.

Loop Prevention

Routing information is exchanged using Multiprotocol BGP (MP-BGP), which treats MAC Addresses as routes. This loop-free architecture, eliminates spanning tree protocol (STP) and ends broadcast storms (because there is no broadcast). MAC flapping detection and mitigation prevents unicast and multicast loops in an all-active multihomed topology.

Remote Diagnostics

IT Administrators collect network traces and PCAPs from any Network Orchestrator connected to The Fabric. Additional deeper troubleshooting Is available using realtime analytics displayed inside The Fabric Portal or IPFix /Netflow exported directly to a remote collection tool.

Failover and Load Balancing

PeerEdge® Network Orchestrators support edge-device multihoming as well as MAC address mobility and load balancing across dual-active links. When split between Orchestrators, the links provide true HA failover at the network edge.
