BGPproxy 10G Series

Improve Performance for BGP Deployments

The BGPproxy™ platforms increase productivity through faster network connectivity for business critical applications and reduce costs by delaying costly bandwidth upgrades through the full utilization of existing bandwidth resources.

The BGPproxy appliance operates in conjunction with the ZeroOutages global management system to predict the quickest and most reliable routes for cloud enabled applications. XRoads Networks' ZeroOutages service provides each BGPproxy solution with optimized route information which was collected from each of its customers in order to improve responsiveness and better adapt to potential network failures.

Cloud Services Acceleration
Improve performance and reliability for cloud-based services. If your organization utilizes cloud-based services across an existing BGP network, the BGPproxy can dramatically increase responsiveness and resiliance via our patented session bonding and acceleration technology.

BGP Route Optimization
Fully utilize secondary Internet links. This leads to a more evenly distributed network load across the links in order to utilize the full resources of each WAN service. Instantly improve Internet connectivity and application performance with the BGPproxy platform. By redirecting critical applications to the BGPproxy network administrators can easily accelerate Internet downloads and enable end-users to be more productive.

Transparent Integration
Each BGPproxy appliance was designed with a simplified plug-in network installation process which allows for easy implemention into an existing BGP deployment.

Guaranteed Bandwidth Modules
Only the BGPproxy appliances include our "Guaranteed Bandwidth" functionality to ensure that your mission critical applications receive the dedicated bandwidth they need during periods of high utilization. This is an aspect of our dynamic bandwidth management (Adaptiband) technology, which is only available from XRoads Networks.

Network Reporting
A critical aspect of the BGPproxy appliance is its ability to continuously monitor the various ISP links and determine which connection is performing optimally for a specific route. This information is shared and compared with the ZeroOutages service data in order to deliver an unparalleled level of information for choosing the best possible path, Best Path Routing at its finest.

The EdgeXOS (XRoads Operating System) platform is a modular system which incorporates a number of bandwidth management components. The following is a list of some of the primary features built-in to this EdgeXOS platform, including patented technologies not found in other products on the market today. For more information, please contact an XRoads Networks sales representative.


Accelibond Cloud Service Acceleration - Unique cloud acceleration technology which combines multiple Internet connections (3Mbps + 5Mbps = 8Mbps) in order to dramatically accelerate cloud-based services across multiple ISP connections and remote server resources.


BGP Route Optimization (Best Path Routing) - This network monitoring and dynamic routing technology ensures that mission critical application traffic always uses the best path by performing SLA and other testing to remote network resources.


Adaptiband DBM - Dynamic Bandwidth Management includes unique traffic shaping and QoS capabilities which greatly simplifies bandwidth control. DBM automatically minimizes P2P usage and bandwidth hogs, thus preventing "network slowdowns".


MVP Routing - Intelligent next generation vector routing technology which is designed to automatically adjust network routes as needed to optimize and prioritize application performance and ensure 99.999% uptime.


ActiveDNS (DNS Server) - Enterprise class DNS services are built-in to the EdgeXOS platform which enable multi-WAN server load balancing and failover. Specialized delegation feature prevents domains from having to be transferred.


Real-Time Network Reporting - The EdgeXOS platform includes real-time network reporting using our XFlow technology. XFlow monitoris network traffic and reports on throughput, application usage, and top users via continuously updated graphs.


Transparent Installation - Easy to setup, no changes to the existing IP addressing or the network configuration is required. The EdgeXOS includes a simple web interface which enables administrators to get up and running quickly.


Application QoS/Throttling - Prioritize application traffic and/or guarantee bandwidth for a certain application, user or group of users. Control bandwidth based on max throughput or max data usage over a period of time. Select from twelve levels of QoS shaping.


ActiveHA (ISP Failover) - In the event of a network outage, the EdgeXOS platform automatically detects and fails over to the remaining active connections. SLA reporting and deep path inspection constantly monitors link status.


Deep Path Inspection (DPI) - Unique to the EdgeXOS platform, DPI performs a multitude of network tests in order to determine the status of each WAN link. This includes physical link detection, as well as Layer 2 and Layer 3 testing to check each hop out to the Internet.


Enhanced Session Persistence (ESP) - Unique to the EdgeXOS platform is its ability to perform ESP ensuring that critical application traffic, like SSL or VPN traffic, does not get reset due to a change in how traffic is routed (unlike other generic load balancing solutions).


Custom XOS XML/SNMP API - The EdgeXOS platform includes an unsurpassed level of customized reporting and management capabilities. XRoads Networks has developed a complete tool kit for customers, or they can use our own XOS Global Manager (XGM).

How can this appliance ensure "bandwidth continuity" for my organization?
The EdgeXOS platform is designed to reduce and/or eliminate network performance issues by implementing multiple paths to ensure uptime and acceleration for critical applications, while at the same time monitoring network usage in order to reduce usae by non-critical applications, especially during periods of high utilization. When combined, these methods provide a faster, more reliable network connection which translates to more efficent end-users and higher productivity.

Does this appliance include Automated ISP failover?
Yes, this appliance includes deep-path inspection to determine when a link has failed a updates routing on the fly.

Can this appliance help to resolve network slowness issues?
Yes, using our unique Adaptiband dynamic throttling, along with our QoS and policy-based shaping capabilities.
