Our History

APS Networks was founded in 2020 to provide customers with a true alternative to other switches based on as single suppliers switching ASICs. Combining that starting point with the deliberate choice to have design and manufacturing take place in Europe, APS Networks can guarantee a secure supply chain for both the hardware and the software components. 

Our Vision

We revolutionize the network as the trusted partner for programmable switches.

Our Mission

To accelerate the advancement of open, secure, innovative and sustainable network solutions, by  designing and creating versatile programmable network switches and contributing to open community projects.

APS Networks was one of only two start-up companies to become an Intel® Network Builders Winners’ Circle Solution Partner in 2020-2021 and a Gold Level Member in 2021-2022


The network is the new field of play for computing innovation, and APS delivers everything you need to turn open, programmable networking into a major source of business advantage. At the core of our development activities within the telecommunications sector, from broadband, 5G and hybrid disaggregated networking to media and broadcast, security and defense solutions, we are designing new products from the core to the edge. We are working on many new product designs to supply for these industries which are flexible and adaptable to future network requirements. We provide the customer with a choice of open hardware in conjunction with the best-of-breed secure and supported open source software.

Security by design

Meanwhile the company is working on several new switch designs and working closely with the open community to provide secure and open source-based solutions to the worldwide market. The future products are all being designed in Europe. A secure supply chain and enhanced security features are key to providing secure networking solutions which are deployed as part of a country’s Critical National Infrastructure (CNI).

Community contributions

We are working closely with many open community foundations on a range of open source-based software and hardware projects, making sure these are well supported projects with a wide contributor base, long term support, good documentation & CI/CD measures, and an active thriving community. We aim at contributing to these projects actively and to provide enterprise grade 24/7 support for these projects so customers can deploy open innovation in their highly demanding networking infrastructure.
