Intelligent Routing

XRoads Networks has developed a routing system specifically designed to direct traffic across various network paths to optimize available bandwidth and to ensure automated and instant redundancy for mission critical applications.

The following are a few of the types of routing systems built-in to the UBM platform.

Unique Source-Based OSPF Integration

OSPF (Open Shortest Route First) is a common routing protocol used by many enterprise organizations. Source-based routing is a method for re-directing traffic based on packet parameters. XRoads Networks has developed a unique method for integrating source routing with OSPF to automated and simplify how routes are propograted across the enterprise network.

Static Routing

These are stable and unchanging routes which are used to force traffic across a specific path.

Dynamic Routing

With dynamic routing a customer can configured a route for a specific application which changes based on the probe metrics. If a probe is not responding correctly then the route can be changed in real-time.

Application Routing

These are routes that affect specific types of traffic based on the port, protocol, and/or signature. Web traffic can be routed our one interface, and VoIP can be routed out via another interface.

Best Path Routing™

Our standard routing protocol is our own "Best Path Routing" system. This system performs constant testing out each interface and updates route metrics within the BPR database. Routes are then changed as the metrics are changed, including latency, packet loss, jitter and bandwidth usage. Traffic flows can be changed based on the availability and performance of the various network connections.
