Our Story

Inception

SMOAD was born out of a need for wireless access to uninterrupted internet connectivity. The Idea sprung up when a major flood hit the southern region of India and disrupted the internet for days due to damaged cable infrastructure.

The first iteration of the product was in 2018 when the founders, Srinivasan and Richard came together to develop a router that could aggregate multiple connections (Broadband and 4G LTEs) using Software defined Solutions. In the following months, this evolved into an edge router with Micro Service Capabilities using SD-WAN Technology.

Our first Product was deployed in June 2018 and we have been growing ever since.

Our Goals
