Renesys Granted Patent for Monitoring Internet Routing by United States Patent Office
Monday, April 23, 2012
Manchester, NH -- Renesys Corporation, a world leader in Internet Intelligence, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded the company a patent (U.S. No. 8,161,152) for its methods and systems for monitoring Internet routing. The patent recognizes Renesys' unique capability to collect and model the complicated inter-relationships between customers, providers, and peers, from multiple vantage points on the Internet, looking beyond traditional network monitoring.
Despite continuing advances in network and application monitoring tools, the Internet remains a huge blind spot in most companies' strategic and operational plans. Renesys' patented technology provides insight into the configuration, stability, safety and health of the Internet as a whole.
"Our specialized method of collecting and correlating Internet routing data on a global basis provides the industry's most comprehensive foundation for analyzing and understanding the Internet. Most people would like to consider the Internet just a utility when it works, but in reality, it's a sophisticated system of inter-related networks and providers that is always changing and is often disrupted. Our capabilities provide intelligence, to help organizations make critical buying and operational decisions to optimize their use of the Internet," said James Cowie, CTO, Renesys. "The Internet is the key to economic growth worldwide, making it cost-effective for every company to do business on a global scale. It's a globally robust asset, yet at times locally fragile --- prone to accidental misconfiguration, failure, and attack. We provide the knowledge that organizations need to minimize risk and maximize the value of the Internet."
The patent for monitoring the Internet was awarded to Renesys co-founders Andrew T. Ogielski and James H. Cowie, and is the core technology that powers the company's full suite of Internet Intelligence products, including Market Intelligence, Routing Alarms, and the Internet Health Portal. The original patent application was filed on March 18, 2004 (10/803,767).
Renesys, the leader in Global Internet Intelligence, provides products, services and thought leadership to network service providers, enterprises and governments worldwide. As a trusted source of deep insight into the Internet since 2000, we offer solutions to help our customers find competitive advantage, operate their businesses more efficiently, and manage the growing risks of increasing dependence on the Internet. The Company is privately held and headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire and maintains global computing facilities in US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
