Overview Features Architecture

Time critical enterprise applications that transfer massive files (100GB – 10 TB) or trigger large network flows like with rich desktop virtualization (10Mbps – 100Mbps) are exorbitantly expensive to operate over Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), deliver too slowly over the internet, or are too large for a CDN, particularly when latencies are greater than 100ms. That’s because these apps need a high-quantity of high-quality, low variability, bandwidth speed in order to deliver acceptable QoE. We call these Demanding Internet Apps.

LiveONE™ is the first SD-QoE global cloud service for Demanding Internet apps. With LiveONE™ these apps see a faster, less variable, lower latency network. For example, instead of these apps always blindly following the often-congested internet route, LiveONE™ can avoid this congestion by relaying these apps over popular public clouds like Softlayer, AWS, Digital Ocean, and Azure.

LiveONE™ Features

Global 10Gbps multi-cloud global routable overlay network
(e.g. Softlayer, AWS, Digital Ocean, Azure)

24/7 network analyzers that map and provide network insight between the points of presence.

Automatically seeks out high bandwidth high quality routes from user’s device to destination device.

Configurable classes of service by application type and traffic profile.

Support for micro services such as data manipulation, transcoding, storage, or caching

Auto scaling up and down based on demand fluctuations.

Robust design to detect and handle issues/failures.

Safe/Secure – avoid going over public internet.

RESTful API, requiring no proprietary hardware or software installations.

Multiple onboarding methods such as DNS registration, API, or on client app.

Private management interface for administrators to configure network resources and policies.

Architecture

LiveONE consists of,

  • A fast global 10Gbps cloud overlay network
  • Optional client side protocol optimizers called LiveTCP™ and LiveUDP™.
  • Optional client side network monitoring called LiveVIEW™.

The LiveONE™ cloud overlay network, in concert with the optional client side optimizers and network monitoring, are designed to deliver the highest network performance as required by Demanding Internet Applications.

LiveTCP™ dramatically reduces the impact of latency on TCP-based applications. LiveTCP™ increases application performance and throughput by replacing standard TCP implementations with enhanced TCP algorithms that are selected and tuned on a per-flow basis according to application requirements and measured network conditions. LiveTCP™ maximizes application performance and fully leverages network resources to ensure high QoE.

LiveUDP™ is LiveQoS®’ patented and patent-pending family of packet loss protection solutions. Packet loss causes applications to slow down, video to breakup, and audio quality to degrade. When the Link Profiler detects packet loss, LiveUDP™ is activated and continually tuned by the QoS Controller to provide the exact amount of protection required by each application to deliver high QoE. Three different LiveUDP™ algorithms are used to create over 30 different encoding modes. These algorithms include Zero Latency Loss Protection, Audio Loss Protection, and Video Loss Protection. Each algorithm is designed for the needs of a different set of target applications.

LiveVIEW™ supports a set of sensors that detect the access networks at both endpoints involved in each data stream: WiFi, 3G, 4G, LTE, and wired. Important metrics like throughput rates, packet rates, latency, packet loss, and jitter are continually measured to deliver end-to-end network path insights. This information is passed to the QoS controller and is used to determine which link optimizers should be enabled and to tune the optimizers to account for known link limitations.
