How We Got the Name Lavelle Networks?

Bangalore lives on Coffee. At 560001, in a quaint coffee shop on Lavelle Road, we started a journey
into the powerful world of SDN. Having read the pioneering work at Google B4, we drew up all sorts
of network topologies that could be solved by moving intelligence into the cloud. We wanted to
build a technology and product company with the unique identity of Bangalore.
Since the idea struck us at a coffee shop on the famed Lavelle Road, an epitome of Bangalore’s
culture and heritage, we decided to identify ourselves with innovation in Bangalore, with the place
where the idea first came to us.
And so started the journey of Lavelle Networks!
