Mode, a San Francisco, CA-based developer of autonomously controlled networks, has emerged from stealth with a $16m Series B funding round.
The round was led by GV, with an additional grant from the National Science Foundation.
The company was founded by two Cornell computer scientists, Dr. Nithin Michael and Professor Dr. Kevin Tang, who discovered the characteristic equations that define modern packet-switched networks, and then implemented a mathematically optimal routing system they called Mode HALO.
Mode now provides Mode Core, a software-defined core network (SD-CORE) that gives enterprises affordable private network reliability and quality of service, which can be used in combination with SD-WAN and last-mile internet.
Mode Core powers SD-WAN, Cloud Access, Unified Communications (UC), and Ultra Low Latency applications like interactive streaming, multiplayer gaming, real-time machine learning, blockchain, and remote command and control.
