Network infrastructure solutions provider, Heficed launches Border Gateway Protocol communities onto its infrastructure stack. The new feature will allow customers to identify optimal paths and adjust traffic routes accordingly, thus providing more flexibility and speed in the context of network management. Hefice is launching the feature a few months after the 30-year BGP anniversary when the routing protocol was first published.

BGP aims to manage how data packets are shared across autonomous systems throughout the exchange of reachability information between edge routers. It allows users to direct data through different ISPs, which provides flexibility in managing traffic quality. Zilvinas Vaickus, Head of Infrastructure, Heficed said,
“The option to instantly switch between different routers offers more streamlined network management, as well as improves the speed and quality of traffic. We have been using BGP communities among the team for a while now. Having seen its benefits up close, we are excited to finally introduce the high in demand function to our clients.”
