Subnet logo

SUB::NET is a small company which was initially created for the purposes of the first Macedonian IPv6 Summit which took place in Skopje. The summit was very successful and had very positive feedbacks from all participants. It had the purpose to educate the participants and to raise the awareness of the depletion of IPv4 addresses and the inevitable migration to IPv6.

Now the company continues to be the Macedonian IPv6 initiative, but at the same time it started to develop its own IT solutions. It targets ISPs, banks and other companies and organizations as customers.  Currently it is working on a project which connects network monitoring, netflow analyzing and anomaly detection system. The purpose is to create one compatible system which will be centrally managed and able to learn by itself about the network and its habits and then alarm if necessary.
