Overlay Networking for a Software-Defined World

VINO Architecture

There are many forms of network overlays: peer-to-peer networks, IP networks, VLANs – even the Internet itself is an overlay. More virtual overlay innovations from a variety of vendors will be required as we move further toward a software-defined networking (SDN) world. As an early mover, TELoIP recognized years ago the need to develop an SDN Embedded OS in order to increase the potential for network functions virtualization (NFV) along the network path.  Referred to as AgniOS, this software-defined operating system has enabled TELoIP to develop multiple, patented overlay techniques that today are encapsulated in our SD‑WAN solution, which is built on our Virtual Intelligent Network Overlay (VINO) architecture.

SDN Architecture

In the emerging SD-WAN market, there is a remarkable variety of solution architectures, all of which make similar claims of abstracting policy control to simplify management complexities along the network path.  VINO provides a multi-dimensional SD‑WAN overlay consisting of three primary components: a multi-tenant cloud orchestrator (the TELoIP Portal), a distributed network of multi-tenant gateway controllers (the TELoIP Cloud), and CPEs at each customer branch (VINO Edge CPEs). Each VINO component is powered by our unique SDN OS, enabling several specialized capabilities to be delivered through this SD‑WAN architecture.


Our patented, advanced Data Plane tethers branch CPEs to the Control Plane with intelligent, per-packet distribution and optimization technology


Our Control Plane interconnects the distributed SD-WAN Controllers, offering proximal points of entry for all branches in a meshed P2MP over UC VxLAN-based technology that scales to thousands of endpoints


Our SD-WAN was designed to abstract overlapping customer subnets with multi-tenant support, creating per-customer, protected route domains

The TELoIP Cloud

9 PoPs & over 800 Cities Serviced

TELoIP Cloud Architecture

Hardened, carrier-grade infrastructure supporting Cloud, WAN and Internet services across North America


Within each PoP, TELoIP hosts VINO Controllers that track network health while enforcing application Quality of Service (QoS) and security policies on a per-packet basis


VINO Controllers collectively form a Control Plane that moves traffic across TELoIP’s virtual network

VINO WAN Branch Encryption

Allows customers to mix and match multiple circuits, including broadband Internet and MPLS


These circuits tie into TELoIP’s overlay network for access to the Internet, cloud services, and headquarters connectivity


Branch-to-Branch mesh connectivity with end-to-end encryption and QoS


TELoIP’s solutions are easily deployed through VINO Edge CPE appliances, with zero touch provisioning. VINO Edge appliances start at less than a hundred dollars for 10Mbps throughput, with additional models that go to 1Gbps and beyond. VINO Edge appliances are also available as a VM.


Using the embedded SDN OS, VINO Edge devices work in tandem with the VINO Controllers to dynamically steer packets across the aggregated underlay links. The health of each underlay link is monitored, and all branch traffic is intelligently managed to optimize both inbound and outbound performance for all cloud, WAN, and Internet applications according to user-defined application policies. VINO Edge appliances can shift traffic across links without dropping a connection, even for real-time traffic such as VoIP or video. Customers can mix and match network underlay circuits and carriers to connect their VINO Edge devices using any combination of MPLS, Broadband Internet, Cable, DSL or LTE.

VINO Edge CPEs offer virtualized network functions (VNFs) – including encryption, firewalling, and bi-directional QoS – that are available as remote feature add-ons embedded in the same cloud-managed appliance, eliminating the need for additional hardware.

The TELoIP Portal

We also provide a multi-tenant, cloud-based orchestration portal that enables service providers and resellers to provision, monitor and manage VINO solutions for their customers. The TELoIP Portal combines zero-touch provisioning with end-to-end visibility and control for robust SLA management through a single pane of glass, all with no on-site IT required.
