The Power of Border Gateway Protocol

The crucial role in networks reachability and normal functioning on international and national levels is reserved to the Border Gateway Protocol. It makes possible the information exchange about IP address availability between networks of internet service providers (autonomous systems), allowing to choose a route that traffic will follow until it reaches the destination. However, each ISP selects the route from all the alternatives on its own. Since within the specifications for Border Gateway Protocol, there is no limitation in what the operator could do with the traffic. There is no authentication or verification of incoming routes to networks, preventing traffic management issues between ISPs (routing incidents).

It is almost impossible to detect network incidents from inside a customer's network. Usually, ISPs monitor only their traffic and cannot observe the routes between other ISPs globally. For these purposes of global traffic monitoring and anomaly detection, one needs a specialized tool that works at a level of interdomain routing.

Real-time BGP Monitoring

Optimize traffic routes and make informed decisions

is one of the largest BGP collectors in the world

(counting the number of sessions and routing tables). Hundreds of ISPs worldwide provide Qrator Labs with data on all the available within routing tables networks.

Stay Ahead with

Qrator.Radar detects thousands of routing incidents globally every day.

Real-Time BGP

Instant customer alerts via syslog, email, and API. Swift response to incidents for improved network security and business outcomes.

Developed algorithms process

Qrator Labs' in-house developed algorithms process received information and searches for any anomalies that could lead to the incidents. The essential part of this is supported by a mathematical model defining the relationship between autonomous systems.

Benefits and features

Route Leaks

Redirection or concentration of traffic within an intermediary network that should not, under normal circumstances, be present in the route. Smaller operators could incidentally redirect onto themselves traffic flows from the backbone networks or entire continents. Consequences of a route leak include increased latency, traffic loss and substantial degradation of connection quality. As a result of such leak both transit operators and service end-users suffer.

Hijacks

illegitimate network prefixes announcement into BGP, allowing to hijack the traffic. Malfunctor, with the help of phishing sites, could attain the traffic of a target, analyze it and search for passwords, financial and personal data.

Bogons

announcement of prefixes and autonomous system numbers into BGP reserved for other purposes and not supposed to be in the routing tables. Such an event outcome varies from the local network becoming available to an outside user to the entire network's unavailability.

How Qrator.Radar Works

Bad routing

Once a network incident happens, it starts affecting a customer’s business causing connectivity problems and  frustrating delays in response times. External issues are challenging to debug once inside a customer’s network so it takes time  for network engineers to find BGP trouble spots. All this results in the company sustaining losses as routing changes affect its network performance.

Detecting

Qrator.Radar detects a problem based on routing data collected from over 800 BGP sessions with global ISPs and processed by unique mathematical algorithms.

Reporting

Qrator.Radar makes a detailed description of the issue, determines its reason and the culprit, and alerts a customer within a minute by email/syslog/API/etc.

Repairing

It takes less time to fix the problem as its reason is already clear for the network engineers. Qrator.Radar ensures better network performance and reliability of the customer’s service.
