What is IP Transit?

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:

Peering Network

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.

Expanded 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.

Global Internet Connectivity

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.

IP Transit not only includes access to the global Internet, but also the transit provider’s Peering and Extended Networks.

Who Needs IP Transit?

IP Transit is ideal for several types of organizations:

Financial Services Firms

When microseconds count, Genesis Adaptive’s low-latency, fiber-based IP Transit service is a perfect fit. Utilizing transcontinental fiber routes, high-performance Cisco networking equipment, and robust route optimization techniques, we provide the throughput necessary for the most critical business transactions including data analytics, high frequency trading (HFT), and business Internet access.

Logistics Companies

Ensuring delivery of critical cargo requires precision, planning, and reliable connectivity. Logistics companies benefit from our wide network reach, ensuring constant access to tracking and shipment applications, GPS location data, inventory management, and staff augmentation tools. Logistics firms in need of fast, consistent access will greatly benefit from Genesis Adaptive’s global IP network.

Technology Firms

Whether it is late night code deployments, repository access, or research and design, technology firms rely on their Internet access for both application delivery and development purposes. Genesis Adaptive is well-positioned as a technology organization to meet the specific needs of other technology organizations. Leveraging our IP Transit service allows technology firms of all sizes to focus on core business competencies, such as application development, while avoiding the pitfalls of engineering systems architecture.

Enterprises with Large Offices

Organizations with large central or remote offices often have unique needs when it comes to IT resources. The demands of 50+ users in larger office environments often require high-bandwidth usage for applications such as VoIP, streaming video, and cloud-based resource access (data storage,
CRM, ERP, and Office 365). Genesis Adaptive’s IP Transit service has direct peering to multiple SaaS providers including Microsoft and Amazon. This provides the critical connectivity required for your business.

Our Network

Leverage our global reach and extensive technology platform for your business.

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.
