Adaptive Private Networking

APN is easy to install and complements current WAN solutions. This innovative technology offers a revolutionary new approach to building enterprise WANs. By combining network bandwidth from the public Internet with RAID-like methods and overlay networking techniques, APN allows businesses to take advantage of the economics of inexpensive Internet bandwidth without sacrificing business quality, reliability or availability. It accomplishes this by combining diverse sources of bandwidth and using end-to-end algorithms to apply dynamic, real-time, per-packet traffic engineering. By continually measuring loss, latency and jitter, APN adapts to variations in network traffic flow virtually instantly to ensure reliable, predictable application performance using all available bandwidth.
