Argo Smart Routing

Globally accelerate your traffic with a single click

The public Internet does its best to deliver your content — but it can’t account for network congestion, leading to slow load times and a degraded end-user experience.

The Cloudflare network is different. It routes over 10 trillion global requests per month — providing Argo Smart Routing with a unique vantage point to detect real-time congestion and route web traffic across the fastest and most reliable network paths.

On average, web assets perform 30% faster.

Faster Loading Times

Argo delivers web traffic over the fastest links available resulting in noticeably faster web assets and improved end-user experience

Increased Reliability

Argo’s live view of network conditions enables it to route around congestion and leverage the most reliable links to deliver increased uptime

Integrated Security

All Argo traffic is encrypted end-to-end across the Cloudflare network, protecting web traffic from bad actors

Reduced Costs

Argo minimizes content requests to the origin server, reducing latency, server load, and bandwidth usage

Dynamic content delivery

Almost half of users will abandon a page taking more than two seconds to load

End-user experiences need to be immersive, interactive, and fast – regardless of the user's location, device, or current network conditions. Argo offers:

  • Congestion Avoidance, with routing decisions informed by real-time network conditions
  • Tiered Caching, with content served from adjacent data centers to reduce cache-miss rates, server load, and latency
  • TCP Optimizations to further minimize latency for non-cacheable content
  • Global Support, with network routes across the entire Cloudflare network, including China

Accelerate any traffic

With Argo Smart Routing for packets, our intelligent traffic acceleration now works with Magic Transit. Reduce latency, improve performance, and increase availability for all your applications while simultaneously protecting them from DDoS attacks — all using the power of the Cloudflare global network.
