Technology

XRoads Networks is the inventor of next generation "session bonding", "dynamic bandwidth management" and intelligent WAN technology, which ensures the most efficient use of your WAN (wida-area network) connectivity and has significant advantages over traditional load balancing, traffic shaping, and WAN optimization solutions.

Our bandwidth management solutions include our Accelibond, Adaptiband, Site2Site, ApeXfilter and ActiveDNS technologies.

XRoads Networks developed the first Unified Bandwidth Management™ products based on these technologies. UBM by design provides an excellent platform for Internet and cloud connectivity which incorporates a number of core bandiwdth management and network optimization capabilities. The following are some of the key functions built-in to the EdgeXOS platforms:

Site2Site™ VPN Virtualization (S2S)

Bond multiple tunnels to increase speed and reliability

Accelibond™ Internet Session Bonding (MSA)

Bond multiple ISP connections

Adaptiband™ Dynamic Bandwidth Management (DBM)

Equalize bandwidth distribution

ApeXfilter™ NextGen Application Filter (MWF)

Next generation filtering & caching technology

ActiveDNS™ Inbound Load Balancing

Server link balancing w/redundancy

XFlow™ Real-Time Network Reporting (XRE)

Detailed application reporting

Active Network Redundancy (ActiveHA™)

Route failover and network monitoring

Server Load Balancing (SLB)

Application distribution and failover

Intelligent WAN Load Balancing (iWAN)

Advanced application routing

Application QoS/Throttling (ATS)

Policy-based application & end-user shaping

Comprehensive Cloud Firewall (CFW)

Network security services

Comprehensive LAN Router (CLR)

VLANs, Bridging, SNAT/PAT, Bypass

XRoads Networks has also partnered with a number of best of breed companies to deliver additional security, reporting, and acceleration features to ensure reliable, secure, and responsive connectivity to cloud (Internet/Intranet) applications like remote CRM, Email, SSL, VoIP and other mission critical systems.

XRoads Networks utilizes a combination of both Open Source as well as custom developed firmware for its XRoads Operating System (XOS). We utilize unmodified versions of the Linux Kernel, OpenVPN, IPRoute and several other open source technologies to which we have been a donor and strong supporter of over the years. We have also built our own proxy technology used to perform our balance and bonding capabilities.

It is important to note that our methods are unique and unlike other competing solutions at no time does our technology modify SYN packets in a way that changes and/or includes a physical router address. It is equally important to note that at no time does XRoads Networks provide the ability to aggregate or bond two or more tunnels together which use different levels of security and/or encryption. This distinction means that our products provide more consistant latency and jitter across all available Site2Site tunnels.
