Our company name is based on one of our unique differentiators: our software operates at Layer 2 of the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model - the Data-Link Layer. Working at the Data-Link Layer allows Apollo to be agnostic to the types of traffic carried and applications running above it. At Layer 2, Apollo supports features like bonding/bandwidth aggregation that are not easy to achieve at higher layers.
