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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
