ATLANTA -- Digital Envoy, the leading provider of geographically intelligent Internet solutions, today announced the availability of its RealPath(TM) intelligent routing technology that allows instant Internet traffic management decisions to be made for global load balancing or content distribution network applications, based on the analysis of network topology and city-level geographic location. RealPath provides capabilities that currently don't exist in the infrastructure marketplace by combining topology- and city-level geography-based Internet routing. RealPath, broadly covered in seven separate patent filings, was specifically designed for incorporation into content networking switches and appliances to enable quickest-path routing decisions based on topology, as well as to allow for content targeting and restriction based on the geographic location of an Internet user. According to Rob Batchelder, research director with Gartner Group, geographic traffic management is pushing the networking technology envelope because it brings a new dimension to how content is individualized and delivered. "Ideally, the optimum approach to content delivery is to analyze the characteristics of the network from the core to the 'edge' and dynamically alter not only how, but what content is delivered. The more refined that analysis is, the more efficient and personalized that delivery can be," said Batchelder. "Increasing the 'IQ' of a network, not only injects new levels of relevance to content, but enables better routing, storage, placement and, ultimately, end-user experience." "True geographical and topological routing is the holy grail of intelligent traffic management and represents a significant enhancement to existing routing technologies," said Rob Friedman, executive vice president of corporate development for Digital Envoy. "By adding RealPath intelligence from the edge to the core of a network, companies can instantly improve overall network efficiency and transparently enhance the online experience for its users."Digital Envoy
