Business Challenges:

  • Overall network performance boost
  • Reduction of Latency and Packet Loss
  • Keeping the commit levels for each provider at a preconfigured level
  • Automation of tedious BGP configuration processes


  • IRP lowered Packet Loss by an average of 76% for the analyzed prefixes.
  • Sharktech average network latency to long distance, trans-Pacific destinations for the analyzed prefixes has been lessened by nearly 32%. 
  • Network engineers started spending less time and energy on manual BGP configuration tasks, instead dedicating more time to strategic initiatives.
  • With IRP’s Commit Control feature in place, Sharktech was able to avoid overages by intelligently leveraging traffic across available providers.
