Needless to say, the internet has become critical for organizations of all kinds whether corporate, commerce, or government. A huge amount of data is in flux at any given time, racing around the world. This year, the gigabyte equivalent of all movies ever made will cross the global internet every 2 minutes. Businesses must find new ways of coping with all this competitive data and traffic to maintain peak performance, delivering the best possible service to internal users and customers.
One of the more promising solutions is intelligent routing – a system that navigates multiple hops and routing options in a network path to make real-time decisions on how data should travel to its destination.
How does intelligent routing work?
Intelligent routing solutions actually simulate user traffic on each of a network’s available routing paths, helping to detect packet loss and accompanying delays. At Expereo, our own Cloud Acceleration solution executes thousands of tests per minute to choose the best path available, working around any abnormal, erroneous, or sub-optimal routing paths in milliseconds.
Once this data is gathered, it can be put into a routing policy which will automatically take into account the utilization of links. The new routing policy will consider traffic based on availability and performance for users, leaving your business to run smoothly.
