Another networking startup looking to shake up the way companies traditionally deploy wide area networks (WAN) is Viptela.

The San Jose, Calif.-based startup emerged from stealth in May, touting its Secure Extensible Network (SEN), a software-based solution that Viptela said is the first of its kind to integrate routing, network security and segmentation policy into a single solution. The idea, Viptela said, is that SEN eliminates the need for enterprises to acquire each of those capabilities through separate, single-point solutions.

SEN's IP fabric can be used on top of any underlying transport network, including MPLS, Broadband Internet, Metro-Ethernet or LTE, the company said.

Viptela in December closed a $33 million funding round from Sequoia Capital.
