Advanced Network Connections

100% network uptime & ultimate network speed

Designed for resilience, our data centres are directly connected by multiple links with Telehouse North and East coming from different Telcos. This is backed up by a dual fibre ring encompassing Telehouse and Redbus.

We only partner with leading infrastructure providers

In every regional Point of Presence (POP), we include Cisco hardware to provide a continuous unaffected service; this means we can continue even if there a total loss of a router and/or circuit.

Multiple transit links from numerous suppliers

Our suppliers include AboveNet, Global Crossing, Level 3 and Cogent. Each and every one of these suppliers has been selected for their global reach and reliability.

24/7 monitoring of network routes, circuits & power

This monitoring provides our engineers with early warning alert signals via email, SMS and web interfaces ensuring we have professional on hand expertise 24 hours a day.

No single point of failure

Reliable peering strategy combined with state-of-the-art Cisco hardware, ensuring a network with no single point of failure. We also have peering arrangements in place with LINXP, LONAPP, LIPEX and IX Manchester.

Highly resilient & redundant

For additional resilience each POP has a redundant UPS system and two independent UPS's feeding the equipment. So should either UPS fail your connectivity will not be affected. Each POP also has emergency generator backup so we are guaranteed never to suffer a power outage.

Core equipment & services run below 50% capacity

This allows bursts in traffic and network spikes to take place with no effect on our clients, so you are always equipped to handle increased visitors.
