IP SDN vs. The Public Internet

Connecting two IP networks spanning a large geographical distance used to be the realm of IPSec tunnels or expensive dedicated layer 2 circuits from ISP’s who happen to have availability where and when you need it. This process involved extensive build-out costs and implementation times, either through the acquisition of equipment capable of the necessary IPSec encryption throughput needed or long-term service contracts with the underlying service provider. IPSec encryption involves its own drawbacks and limitations, including a reliance on public internet infrastructure to deliver packets efficiently between the remote endpoints and the inability of most IPSec encryption hardware to saturate larger uplinks.

Leveraging IP SDN to provide point to point connectivity between two remote sites allows your business to limitlessly scale your connectivity, similar to what most businesses are accustomed to in hyperscale public clouds, while maintaining dedicated interconnectivity with low latency and more throughput than a traditional IPSec tunnel. Genesis Adaptive’s IP SDN Point to Point connectivity offering comes with no contracts, or setup-fees, and offers immediate scalability

Higher Throughput and Efficiency

The public internet is notoriously unreliable when it comes to packet delivery. At Its core, the Internet is responsible for delivering packets from one end point to another through an intermediary known as a next-hop. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) establishes the best route for packets through a series of determinate metrics, based on things such as route preference and distance. One of the things BGP doesn’t utilize as a metric is latency. If one point of a route is congested with traffic, your businesses’ edge router has no built-in method for routing around this point of congestion, which will significantly impact throughput and latency performance. This makes the public internet a poor medium for packets that require consistency, efficiency, and throughput.

The GA backbone has been engineered from the ground up for low latency, high throughput connectivity. Utilizing the GA Backbone as your point to point IP SDN connectivity solution, your packets pass through fewer, uncongested hops, allowing you to achieve orders of magnitude greater throughput and lower latency.

    Genesis Adaptive has redundant Cisco Nexus 7010 switches that fuel our network

    Redundant, Highly-Available Switching

    The Genesis Adaptive network was built using redundant Cisco Nexus 7K switches for core switching. This allows for 17.6 Tb/s of load per chassis. Each core routing location can switch nearly 40 Tb/s of data and multi-billion packets per second workloads. Within each Nexus 7K chassis are the latest F3 and M3 series routing and switching cards providing peak performance along with 40G and 100G Ethernet interfaces for our customers and internal networking

    Genesis Adaptive has partnered with 40+ Peering Partners

    40+ Peering Partners

    Our extensive list of peering partners provides us with unmatched connectivity to some of the largest content networks in the world. Amazon, Facebook, Google Fiber, Hurricane Electric, Microsoft, Netflix, Yahoo, and many others peer directly with us at one of multiple US-based peering centers. Direct connectivity to these IT infrastructure and content providers allows more direct access to the content that your end users access most frequently.

    Genesis Adaptive provides a single global ASN

    Our Single Global ASN

    Most ISP’s and IP Transit providers build their global networks using a combination of regional ASN’s (Autonomous System Numbers). From an engineering perspective, this is certainly the easy way out. However, BGP was not designed for multiple layers of routing table distinction from the same ASN. Genesis Adaptive has built its network from the ground up on the same ASN for the sake of routing consistency. This provides our customers assurance that the Autonomous System they use in Atlanta is the same as in Los Angeles.

    Genesis Adaptive’s proven network technologies

    Proven Technologies

    Our fully meshed, dual-stack IPv4 / IPv6 Cisco network utilizes the standard BGP4 protocol for external routing, as well as OSPFv3 for internal routing decisions. This ensures lightning fast convergence at the edge of our network and rock-solid stability and control in our core networking infrastructure. Our fully-owned and operated network backbone utilizes MPLS for high-performance back-end routing decisions between all of our core network locations.
