Volta Networks delivers cloud-based virtual routing through a SaaS model, giving customers the opportunity for cloud-based routing at the edge.
Volta virtualizes and scales routing control planes while accelerating new network services through automation, saving customers money with low-cost white box switches, according to the company’s website. It counts among its partners Fujitsu, Edgecore Networks Corp. and Broadcom.
In January, CRN deemed Volta one of the “10 Hot Edge Computing Companies You Should Watch In 2021.” Since then, Volta’s Elastic Virtual Routing Engine (VEVRE) used to create virtual routers was honored by the 2021 Lightwave Innovation Reviews.
The company was founded in 2015 and has raised $22.7 million to date, according to Crunchbase.
