Physical low power, mesh, high throughput, low latency, optical, wireless
Infrastructure switching, routing, load balancing, translation, authentic, crypto, detection, intercept
Tooling libraries, frameworks, tracing, debugging, domain specific languages and extensions.
Telemetry counters & statistics, interference, analysis, automation.
Validation performance, latency, packet manipulation & fuzzing, traffic generators.
Orchestration management, network-layer plugins and controllers.
