The history of NetX Networks is connected with research and development that took place in the past with the help and support of the Brno University of Technology.
Spin-off BUT Brno
The company NetX Networks a.s. was established as a spin-off based on research focused on the development of high-speed equipment for filtering and shaping network traffic at Brno University of Technology.
The development that gave rise to the current NetX solution began before 2010, when new needs for the core network arose at the university - in particular, connecting to global BGP routing, creating a more advanced routing policy, and moving to IPv6 protocol.
