240 potential Points of Presence for the Rapid.Space CDN
After extensive research, the BSO proposal was chosen for their geographical reach, their team’s skills in Border Gateway Protocol and the quality of the discussions had between Rapid.Space and BSO’s technical experts.
One of the uses of Rapid.Space technologies involves the IoT: industrial devices send data via the 4G/5G edge network to a local Rapid.Space server where the data are buffered. Then, depending on the network capacity available in the country, which can be very low, the data are sent to a Rapid.Space virtual machine hosted in one of the points of presence owned by Rapid.Space or in one of BSO’s PoPs. From this data centre, the data are then sent via higher-capacity networks to the company’s central servers for processing, analysis and archiving.
“This routing, which takes into account the constraints of the country, ensures not only the greatest efficiency and the lowest possible price, but above all also guarantees that the company maintains control of the information throughout the whole data transfer”, explained Jean-Paul Smets, CEO of Rapid.Space.
“Not everyone can offer hundreds of PoPs. BSO has been able to develop this offer and, therefore, has become the partner of choice for operators and companies who, like us, need 240 international points of presence.”
