Premium BGP


Static routes are manually configured and must be manually reconfigured anytime the network topology or link status changes.

Dynamic BGP provides automatic failover and chooses the optimal path based on the real-time network conditions as well as preset policies.

Premium BGP chooses the optimal path and ensures low-latency and high-quality networks. BGP is used to interconnect with lines of multiple mainstream carriers. Public network connections that feature low latency and high quality are directly established between Chinese mainland and Hong Kong (China).


Premium BGP is now available only in the CN-Hong Kong region.


When changes occur on a network that uses static BGP, the manual configuration takes some time and high availability cannot be guaranteed.


If you select static BGP, your application system must have disaster recovery setups in place.

When a fault occurs on a carrier's link, dynamic BGP will quickly select another optimal path to take over services, ensuring service availability.

Currently, carriers in China that support dynamic BGP routing include China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, China Education and Research Network (CERNET), National Radio and Television Administration, and Dr. Peng Group.

Premium BGP has the same assurance capability as that of dynamic BGP.

In addition, premium BGP ensures higher network quality and lower latency.

Currently, mainstream carriers in Hong Kong (China) are supported.
