Internap has patented its internet route optimization technology, Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO), improving border gateway protocol (BGP) through the dynamic evaluation of route characteristics such as latency, packet loss, and route stability. In this manner, the best route can be selected according to its final destination, a process that results in the decreased latency, higher availability, and higher performance of the application.
Internap was in need of a tool that allowed them to visualize their system in a manner that they could present to their clients. This tool needed to be consistent with Internap’s preferences, high standards, and excellence in order to demonstrate their competitive advantage in the market.
