How does Internap make GigeNET better?

Traditional networks are managed using BGP, a protocol that attempts to improve network performance by measuring the distance (number of hops) between the end user and the server they are accessing. The shortest distance between two points is not always the fastest. Utilizing Internap’s FCP-10Gx routing optimization appliance, every path out from our network is continuously monitored for latency, packet loss, route stability, and congestion.

Internap’s Best Features

  • Continuously monitors every outbound route for latency, packet loss, route stability, and congestion
  • Automatically routes traffic around major network outages
  • Manages network issues such as IP network brownouts
  • Proactively identifies and chooses the best path at all times
