We empower developers and networks to build future applications

New applications are posing unique challenges for global infrastructure: from smart cities, immersive worlds, & autonomous machines — the way we connect is changing.

The scale of this challenge requires a more intelligent approach to distributed computing. One that involves getting more out of what we have, and making the most out of what we build.

We believe that the way physical infrastructure interacts with software needs to evolve significantly — we are building the technology to achieve that, paving the way for a more autonomous, smart & immersive future.
