IP transit is much what you would expect. It’s a way for one IP address to get to another IP address, or to go from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), or an IP Service Providers, to the larger framework of the internet not under the ISP’s control.
Colocation America’s high-speed IP address service (IP Transit) provides you with low latency and fewer hops which will get you where you need to go—fast!
Colocation America has all the network speed and availability you could ever want, along with top of the line nodes, hops, and ranges you need to run your business successfully.
Internet Protocol, or IP, is an internet protocol network used by private and public networks to facilitate communication between devices within the network.
All types of network, from the World Wide Web to small private network, depend on assigned IP addresses to dictate where information goes. An IP address is set of unique 8-bit numbers assigned to a device that connect to a network. In other words, your IP address is like your home address but for internet-capable devices. Instead of “mailing” a letter, you’re “mailing” information.
There are two types of IP addressing standards, IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4 is the most widely used and familiar type of IP address, but with IPv4 address space running out, IPv6 is in line to replace it in the future.
The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is defined by Cisco as “an inter-autonomous system routing protocol.” In layman’s words, the BGP exchanges local routing information between different Internet Service Providers (ISPs)—for example: Comcast and Time Warner.
Boiled down even further, the Internet is a gigantic place—a network of networks. The BGP ideally acts as the Internet’s GPS (enough initialisms for you yet?) sending your request to its desired location. For example:
An IP traceroute is typically used to diagnose where the problem is when one is trying to connect to the webpage and/or their internet is running slowly. Just take a look at the amount of diagnostic syntax one can use to get exactly the information they need:
Thusly, performing a traceroute will give you a detailed look of the route a packet will take as it travel from one network system to another.
