The internet provides a durable communications channel between local computer networks. It never intended to be fast. More recent enhancements have focused on moving more data, not moving data faster. Today's internet is optimized for delivering the same data, such as websites and streaming video, to many people. It often falls short when trying to deliver real-time data.
Internet latency is the result of indirect routing, a large number of hops, the protocol used, and an inefficient network. Subspace solves all of this.
There are a variety of techniques that can reduce internet latency.
Path determination decides how packets are routed between the origin and destination. The more direct path is usually the fastest.
Lower hop count by reducing the number of devices that a packet must pass through to reach its destination. Each time a device handles a packet, you introduce additional latency.
Use the proper protocol to reduce latency. TCP is best for applications where absolute accuracy is required. Each packet is verified, and any dropped packets are resent. UDP is often a better choice for real-time applications such as communications and gaming. UDP is faster than TCP because it ignores dropped packets. A high-resolution image, such as a single frame in a game, is made from thousands of packets. The loss of a few packets does not noticeably degrade the image.
By prioritizing real-time traffic—such as VoIP—over less time sensitive traffic—such as email— you control or eliminate network congestion.
Reduce a significant amount of latency by properly tuning network devices. Proper adjustment of settings such as buffer size can be critical to achieving a high performing network.
Subspace has redesigned the internet for today’s real-time applications. By creating our own active mesh optical transport network overlaying the internet, we became the only global platform routing traffic at the maximum speed in real-time.
We offer high-performance network optimization for multiplayer games, modern fintech solutions, ecommerce apps, and real-time voice and video applications.
We use a proprietary combination of internet weather-mapping, custom networking stacks, omniscient routers, and dedicated fiber. We partner with ISPs around the world to bring software publishers and telecommunications companies like you the quality and speed your users demand.
We’re optimized for real-time protocols. Whether you need to accelerate TCP/UDP traffic with our PacketAccelerator, move your SIP media faster than ever before with SIPTeleport, deploy global TURN without switching on a server with GlobalTURN, or remove dependency on SBC with a single API call on RTPSpeed, we’ve got you covered.
When you are in Subspace, you have access to real-time network monitoring that provides an instant view of the network’s performance.
Subspace is built on custom networking stacks, omniscient routers and dedicated fiber. It is continuously tuned to provide the very best network performance.
Our proprietary, AI-driven weather mapping and active routing ensures that your packets are always on the fastest route and avoid network congestion.
Subspace has built-in network security to detect and block DDoS and other attacks without introducing additional latency.
With the rise in popularity of online gaming and the demand for an enhanced online experience, we sought a partner that could help open up opportunities to improve gameplay for those in traditionally poor-performing regions. Subspace understood our digital vision and helped to improve latency and guarantee the best possible gaming experience for their users. Subspace is revolutionizing the user experience across the globe, and we are thrilled to be in partnership with them.
Build and scale quickly, with plans and pricing built for your needs.
