AcceleRoute2020-10-20T20:03:16+00:00

A new breed of network.

SD-WANs provide efficient access and transport between end-users and cloud services.  But the quality of experience is still determined by the characteristics of the underlying physical networks.  Spine and Leaf physical network designs offer excellent performance characteristics for SD-WANs and  cloud services data centers.  The AcceleRoute patent family offers a simple and extensively scalable architecture for designing next generation Spine and Leaf networks for SD-WANs and cloud services.

What is AcceleRoute?2020-10-19T16:00:43+00:00

AcceleRoute is a patent family for a network design that features a completely bufferless core that can offer extremely low latency and massive scalability in a simple architecture.

How does AcceleRoute integrate with SD-WAN?2020-10-16T14:57:37+00:00

AcceleRoute is an architecture for a physical underlay network.  SD-WAN software would manage connectivity downward into an AcceleRoute network in an analogous manner to other physical networks such as the Internet, private MPLS networks and 5G.

Is AcceleRoute a “Spine and Leaf” architecture?2020-10-16T14:56:57+00:00

Yes, AcceleRoute would fit into the Spine and Leaf architecture category however it offers a number of significant advancements over conventional Spine and Leaf implementations that enable much larger and geographically distributed scalability.

Why does AcceleRoute have low latency?2020-10-19T16:05:30+00:00

The main causes of network latency are buffering and network hops. The AcceleRoute core network is bufferless and fully meshed. All system buffering is at the edge of the network and most network transits are a single hop.

How large can AcceleRoute scale?2020-10-16T14:40:50+00:00

AcceleRoute networks can expand to include tens of thousands of access routers with high throughput of hundreds of petabits/second.

How do you build an AcceleRoute network with current technology?2020-10-19T15:59:09+00:00

An AcceleRoute core switch element can be designed using conventional ICs typically found in ethernet switches and routers. Once built, this core switching element can be used to build out a large capacity symmetrical bufferless core network.

The AcceleRoute architecture has also been designed to construct a fully optical network that would require the development of an optical switching element.

How many patents are there for AcceleRoute?2020-10-16T14:23:55+00:00

There are currently 35 patents spanning 9 patent families.

What is the AcceleRoute Global Time Alignment feature?2020-10-20T19:28:56+00:00

Global time alignment is a key feature of AcceleRoute that allows every Access Node on the network to intercommunicate through a vast lineup of coherent time slots which eliminates the need for buffering in the network core.

Who owns AcceleRoute?2020-10-20T19:58:57+00:00

The patents for AcceleRoute are owned by its inventor, Dr. Maged Beshai who is represented by InventionShare Inc. for the purposes of commercialization.

What is a fused network?2020-10-20T20:00:40+00:00

A fused network is an architectural method that was invented and patented by network designer, Dr. Maged Beshai as part of the AcceleRoute patent portfolio.   It is used to achieve substantially larger scalability of a Spine and Leaf network.

Has an AcceleRoute network been constructed?2020-10-16T14:36:18+00:00

Currently, AcceleRoute is a network design that has been extensively patented and simulated.   It has not yet been constructed.

What is a contiguous network?2020-10-16T14:56:19+00:00

A contiguous network exhibits consistent behavior and architectural symmetry at all points of scale.

Quality of Experience.

Extensively in use today are buffered multi-plane physical networks that require multiple hops to reach a destination.  Consequently these networks are prone to internal congestion which leads to highly variable latency and constrained throughput.

These buffered networks are faced with applications that are ravenous for network bandwidth.  Everything from infinite cloud storage and 8K Netflix to quantum computing and Bitcoin mining.  Combine that with increasingly faster devices and ultra-fast access over Wifi 6 and 5G cellular, and maintaining expected quality of experience becomes a huge challenge.

Simpler. Faster. Better.

Spine and Leaf networks provide an architectural approach to achieving low latency and high throughput to meet the requirements of modern networks.  AcceleRoute provides a patented blueprint for building a next generation Spine and Leaf network.  The core of an AcceleRoute network is completely bufferless resulting in a single hop from edge to edge.  That means traffic cannot congest inside the network and consequently the architecture can scale to very large capacities while offering very low and predictable latency.  The architecture is also fully compatible with optical switching technology offering the potential for massive scalability.   AcceleRoute offers true global  scalability through patented methods including global time alignment and network element fusing.  AcceleRoute is a physical network design that can deliver a superlative end-user cloud experience well into the future.
