Dutch Provider Cuts BGP Convergence Times from Minutes to Seconds
When A2B Internet’s network began to struggle under a burgeoning number of routing tables, the provider installed a virtual routing foundation to speed things up.
A2B Internet is a large, low-latency connectivity provider in the Netherlands that also provides IP address and routing management services. As customer traffic increased, the company sought a way to improve rerouting performance if a link were to fail.

A2B can converge a full routing table in 3 to 4 seconds, improving performance such that it is noticeable by customers. The company reports even faster convergence than with a dedicated hardware system, because it can scale routing table convergence independently from the underlying hardware platform.
