Business Challenges:

  • Reduction of engineering time spent on manual BGP manipulation
  • Becoming proactive in solving routing issues
  • Reduction of Network Latency and Packet Loss
  • Shortage of reliable metrics when making important routing decisions


  • TCA engineers witnessed an average reduction of 78% in network loss and 15% in packet latency for their traffic during the very first month.
  • In addition to improving network performance, IRP offered greater control and visibility of the BGP route changes in the TCA network.
  • The platform implementation allowed automated BGP management and eradicated the manual network configuration errors. This, in turn, freed the network engineers to spend more time handling network development tasks instead of the mundane, repetitive ones.
