About Phoebus

Phoebus establishes a new network framework and protocol that brings the high performance of advanced backbone networks all the way to the end-user’s desktop.

Designed to improve end-to-end throughput for long-distance data transfers, Phoebus embeds greater “intelligence” in the network, enabling it to choose the best transport technology for any application based on its needs and the available network resources at application run-time.

Phoebus works by transparently splitting the full network path into distinct segments at specific adaptation points and then finds the best path for the data on a segment-by-segment basis, which could include a combination of IP and dedicated optical circuits. With little to no modification needed by the end-user, applications that use Phoebus have experienced significantly improved throughput in early tests.
