Who We Are

Sedona was an innovative startup in the field of network control that was recently acquired by Cisco. As part of the Massive Scale Infrastructure Group (MIG), we develop the Cisco Crosswork Hierarchical Controller software – a best-in-class solution that simplifies network operations of multilayer and multi-vendor Core Networks, the continent-spanning networks that form the basis of the internet.

In order to develop its product, we created a platform that simplifies the development of networking applications. After the acquisition, different groups in Cisco decided that it would be worthwhile for them to base their new products on such a platform, as well as migrate existing ones to it.

The Sedona Platform team is building this new infrastructure, that is inspired by the ideas that made the old platform successful. The goals are to create a lightweight platform, that puts security as a top priority from day one, and above all - be developer friendly.
