TCP Optimization & Acceleration
The Bequant BQN product, with the Bequant TCP Acceleration (BQN BTA) functionality, increases the speed of TCP traffic flowing through it.
The TCP protocol, which carries around 80% of Internet traffic, can limit the network speed experienced by users, especially in networks with wireless links, high latencies or packet losses. Under those conditions the TCP protocol will usually set a sending speed significantly lower than what the network can actually handle. That can result in a poor customer experience, with slower browsing, file transfers and lower quality video streaming, all of which can be improved by the Bequant BQN.
Transparent TCP Proxy
The Bequant BQN works as an in-line transparent TCP proxy (as an RFC 3135 Local ACK PEP). It receives TCP traffic and then re-sends it faster with an enhanced TCP stack, building a minimal temporary data buffer, enough to make on-going connections appear closer to TCP clients. And closer, with TCP, means faster, especially if there are any packet losses to be recovered. Unlike non-transparent HTTP proxies, the BQN does not change IP addresses, TCP ports or TCP sequences, and no changes or special configurations are required in clients or servers.
BQN nodes are transparently deployed in the path of the TCP traffic to be optimized. Non-TCP traffic is simply forwarded.
Faster TCP Stack
The Bequant TCP stack has been especially designed for wireless networks and for networks with packet losses, where it performs better than other TCP implementations, including Linux Cubic, Akamai Fast TCP and Google BBR. It is self-tuning, with learning algorithms to adapt to changing network conditions in different users.
Installation included in the price
The Bequant BQN is beneficial in multiple situations, whenever there are large network latencies, wireless links or if very high speeds are needed. Some examples follow, showing the point in the network where the BQN can be deployed.
A BQN node is inserted as a bump-in-the-wire in the path of the traffic to optimize. Only TCP traffic and its associated ICMP traffic need to be directed through the Bequant BQN. Any other traffic (e.g. UDP) may still be routed through the BQN and will be transparently forwarded. ICMP is required for MTU path discovery.
No IP addresses are required in the data path. The connection through the BQN is like a wire: all packets received in one port are forwarded to the opposite port.
When it comes to planing, both the up and down traffic must be taken into account
