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 an average of 36 requests per second — giving our Argo Smart Routing service 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 using Argo perform 30% faster.

Dynamic content delivery

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
