Item BGP (Multi-ISP) BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro
Advantages BGP (Multi-ISP) provides high-quality and high-bandwidth BGP lines.
  • Up to 89 high-quality BGP lines are available worldwide.
  • Direct connections can be established in all regions of mainland China through lines of the following Internet Service Providers (ISPs): China Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile, China Mobile Tietong, China Netcom, China Education and Research Network (CERNET), National Radio and Television Administration, Dr. Peng Telecom & Media Group, and Founder Broadband Network.
  • You can use BGP (Multi-ISP) with EIP bandwidth plans to obtain higher bandwidth (up to 100 Gbit/s).
BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro lines optimize data transmission to China and improve connection quality for international services. Compared with BGP (Multi-ISP), when BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro provides services to users in mainland China (excluding data centers), cross-border connections are established by using mainland China ISP services.
