Intelligent Routing For A Faster Network
Most network providers use standard BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) as their routing protocol. However, BGP's route selection process is limited and does not take individual network quality or performance into account when making routing decisions. To combat these issues, uHost takes intelligent routing one step further.
By supplementing BGP with several network metric tools, we can determine the quickest and most reliable path to the end user. Network samples are taken with small probes (UDP) across all available paths from our datacenter to the end user. Once the best path has been determined, the BGP routes are then manipulated to improve network performance. These real-time improvements allow for quick changes on an always changing Internet. The result is consistent end-to-end network performance for business critical applications.
