Light Speed Network

Our vision to achieve a 1ms delay for any service is to automatically migrate a remote service endpoint close to the end-user, for example, on to a nano-cloud on a virtualized base station, thereby cutting down propagation delays limited by the speed of light.

Check out demo with a reconfigurable face detection app.

DNS Update Anomaly Detection

We monitor the top managed DNS service with our global probes to detect any update anomalies like unexpected delay and inconsistency in these services. You may find our trace here.
