IP routing solutions refer to devices and protocols that determine the path that must be followed by data across multiple networks in order to communicate between its source and destination. IP routing solutions facilitate such communication between two separate networks by building a routing table, which enables them to forward data packets across the appropriate ports to reach their destination. IP routing optimization solutions maintain a high degree of transmission quality across the network. Network resources are managed to guarantee latency sensitive services, such as real-time voice, high-quality video, and delay-sensitive data. This is done through managing bandwidth, jitter, and loss parameters on a network. Furthermore, network optimization is utilized by network infrastructure service providers as well as web service providers in order to provide consistent data transmission to their customers. Optimization of large volumes of data to a particular web server is utilized to filter legitimate users of a web service from unnecessary or malicious traffic such as traffic from exploited internet enabled devices (IoT, servers and computers). IP optimization solutions enable real-time optimization of network services and minimization of the impact of security threats from malicious traffic such as from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Advancements in cloud computing services, higher degree of smartphone penetration, and increasing development of datacenters are key factors driving the IP routing and optimization solutions market. Advancements in cloud computing services and the consequent development of data center infrastructure to handle such services has led to a rise in the adoption of IP routing and optimization solutions. Increasing bandwidth requirements of end-users who consume data from the Internet has prompted service providers to invest further in high capacity routing and optimization infrastructure in order to ensure service availability to their users. Expansion of the Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming services market has further fuelled the demand for routing solutions that provide consumers with the closest geographically located servers.
