Welcome to the User Guide for Flock Networks Routing Suite 20.1.

At Flock Networks we believe networks should be simple, fast and secure.

  • Simplicity is achieved by having a uniform configuration across all routers in the network. Device specific and in particular interface specific configuration is to be avoided.
  • Performance is achieved by handling network protocol updates in batches. This means route calculation can be performed less frequently, and keeps the CPU's instruction cache hot. In addition all the data structures used in the routing suite are CPU data cache friendly.
  • Security is achieved by the routing suite being exclusively written in the Rust programming language. Rust has a similar performance to C / C++, but is memory safe at compile time.
