Noction IRP is a BGP network optimization and automation platform for high availability and low latency, designed to dramatically improve multihomed network performance.
Noction IRP improves performance and reduces the costs of running a multihomed BGP network. It passively analyses traffic for specific network anomalies. The affected routes are probed for a set of specific metrics such as latency and packet loss through all the available providers to redirect traffic via the best performing path.
Notable Features and Capabilities:
Traffic Routing Optimization - IRP continuously computes a performance and/or cost-based route optimization for the multihomed network.
Latency and Loss Reduction - The platform reduces latency by up to 40% and packet loss by an average of 89% for the problematic routes detected.
Automated Bandwidth Cost Management - IRP balances traffic and keeps bandwidth levels below the present thresholds for all the available providers at all times.
Congestion and Outages Avoidance - IRP automatically detects network congestion and outages and reroutes traffic through the best performing path.
Automated BGP Network Management - The platform implementation reduces engineering time and the risk of human errors by automating the BGP management process.
Inbound and Transit Traffic Control - IRP influences traffic by manipulating BGP advertisements for different upstream providers, thus affecting the selection of routes on the Internet and shaping traffic entering a network.
Network Monitoring and Troubleshooting - IRP enables quick detection and resolution of network performance issues. It allows network managers to get real-time notifications and alerts anywhere, anytime.

IRP can integrate with the network monitoring systems in the following ways:
IRP uses SNMP traps to send alerts towards the customer’s monitoring systems to notify about events that administrators have chosen to monitor. These are fully adjustable and administrators can decide upon which events should trigger notifications and then configure them on the platform.
REST API which provides the ability to access all statistics provided by IRP and even initiate manual probing for specific destinations.
IRP can also send email and SMS notifications for various events.
The platform offers multi-user capability.
IRP offers a rich API that gives you the ability to incorporate IRP functionality and data assets into your website applications, mobile apps, monitoring tools, etc.
In production, a dedicated server for each IRP instance is strongly recommended. The system can also be deployed on a VM with matching specifications, provided that this is hardware- or para-virtualization (Xen, KVM, VMware). OS-level virtualization (OpenVZ/Virtuozzo or similar) is not supported.
A full set of guides and tutorials is available. Premium support is provided 24/7.
Noction IRP is designed to help Service Providers and Enterprises that operate a multi-homed network environment improve BGP routing performance.
IRP has been successfully tested with Brocade/Foundry, Cisco, Juniper, Huawei, Alcatel, Vyatta, Mikrotik, Arista, and ZTE. Generally, IRP is designed to work with any standards-compliant BGP router which supports routing policies and standard BGP attributes.
Noction Intelligent Routing Platform (IRP) is a product developed by Noction to help businesses optimize their multi-homed network infrastructure. The platform operates at the network edge and receives a copy of the traffic from edge routers, passively analyzes it for specific TCP anomalies, and actively probes remote destination networks for metrics like latency, packet loss, throughput, historical reliability, etc… It computes a performance or a cost-improvement network traffic engineering policy and applies the new improved route by announcing it to the network’s edge routers via a traditional BGP session.
