Deliver performance and reliability for your cloud and SaaS applications
The Internet is a shared, best effort medium across 60,000+ individual networks, and therefore vulnerable to congestion and performance degradation due to packet loss, latency and congestion. Within the Internet, the current routing method is based on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), which is designed for simple ‘shortest path selection’, and does not factor in overall performance.
The BGP protocol, while robust and scalable, is not adapted to the current Internet. It doesn’t know anything about link capacity, doesn’t apply performance analytics and can easily drive links into saturation, introducing packet loss. Nor is BGP aware of commercial agreements like CDR, generating costs that could be prevented with XCA. It also, of course, ignores performance of available paths.
Expereo XCA actively probes all internet prefixes for performance metrics such as packet loss, latency, throughput, historical reliability and maximum peer capacity, and selects the best routing based on these statistics – not just the fewest hops.
Expereo’s Accelerated Cloud Access helps you overcome the limitations of poor Internet routing decisions and improve Cloud application performance.
The promise of the Cloud is to deliver network agility. The foundation of the Cloud is the internet. By optimising the performance of the internet, XCA ensures that Cloud can deliver on that promise of agility, consistently deliver the highest performance for Cloud and SaaS applications, lower costs, and ensure user satisfaction.
The XCA platform monitors all the available destinations across the public Internet and routes your traffic over the best path to compensate for BGP’s inherent deficiencies. This results in significant improvements in application performance and availability with lower latency, jitter and packet loss.
Expereo takes care of the connection of your business locations to our global XCA network, and provides an advanced online monitoring portal to share visibility of the accelerated application performance – combined with our global 24/7 pro-active support and issue resolution service centres.
We are constantly adding new Hubs into our global XCA network and Expereo also offer Direct Connect access to the major Public Cloud providers AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Services, to lift your network application performance by 2x – 3x compared to traditional Internet performance.
