An IP Transit service provides a customer’s autonomous system with a full set of Internet routes. IP Transit is provided by an ISP (Genesis Adaptive) and allows unrestricted access to all resources on the global IP network (the Internet). Be sure to evaluate these three key indicators of network quality when choosing an IP Transit provider:
Direct, or settlement free peering, is a relationship in which the routes of one autonomous system are sent to another in a direct relationship. The IP’s accessible over this routing session no longer require third party ISP’s for access. This allows for a shorter and less latent path, as well as increased throughput. Over 75% of our peak daily traffic goes over our peering network.
These are the direct customers of the IP Transit provider. In this situation. Customer A and Customer B are both subscribed to Genesis Adaptive IP Transit Service. Customer A requests resources from Customer B’s network and is routed directly over the Genesis Adaptive IP backbone instead of the public Internet. This creates a single pane of glass for issue resolution and provides improved visibility for the content delivery pathway.
Connectivity to the rest of the Internet is the final critical area to consider. This is facilitated by edge routers that take full Internet routes from Tier 1 ISP’s and transit providers. This grants customers full access to the rest of the Internet that is not available through the Peering and Expanded Networks. Genesis Adaptive peers with at least three Tier 1 ISP’s at each of our locations, providing for path diversity and BGP route engineering. This allows us to identify and utilize the highest quality, least latent, and best performing routes.

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
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.
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.
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.
Genesis Adaptive’s customers can leverage the same network for critical application hosting and existing customer workloads to provide operational consistency. A single pane of glass for both technology management and billing ensures simplified account management. Genesis Adaptive offers:
