Our Infrastructure

At our Routing layer, we use a mix of Juniper MX204 and MX104 which can be scaled between 160Gbps – 800Gbps. Our routing layer to our Core/Distribution layer is connected with multiple 80G vPCs. As we get closer to you the customer we bring 20G-40G to each access layer switch fully redundant. Customer hand-offs on access layer are a full 1Gbps or 10Gbps.

Throttling / Port Blocking

We believe in net-neutrality! We do not prioritize packet transmissions to any destination limit, block ports, or QoS. We believe that the customer and the internet as a whole are best served when there are no limits. We work incredibly hard to assure faster access to everything! No need to block or limit it would go against our hard work.

Our Routers and Cores

Today we currently utilize Juniper which offers 160G-800Gbps of Capacity on our Routing Layer and Cisco Nexus on our Core and Access Layer. All our routers have multiple 10G/40G uplinks and our Cores are connected via 10G + 40G ports. All our Access switches are connected via 20-40G.

Private Peering, Public Peering Relationships

We are known to peer with providers in the local market with designation on cloud providers in which we tend to exchange a lot of traffic with, to eliminate the extra latency.

Bandwidth Bursting

We believe that allowing the customer to use bandwidth or have the capacity when their servers require it, it should be available and we guarantee it
