Uptime is extremely important to our customers and we know that. Without a fast, stable, and reliable network we know our customers will go elsewhere! We achieve this stability and performance by implementing various redundancy's within our network. We designed our core network to be fully redundant with no single point of failure. Multiple paths exist throughout our network ensuring that if at any point a single piece of hardware fails the network will stay stable and continue to perform as expected. From there we brought in multiple internet service providers and use eBGP to detect and reroute around failures. Our network utilization is to never exceed more than 50% of it's total capacity to ensure it will always have bandwidth available when needed. These efforts mitigate potential downtime issues and help ensure our goal of 100% uptime!
Cox Communications nationwide fiber-optic IP backbone operates over multiple redundant 10 Gigabit connections. Their backbone is enhanced with extensive public and private peering connections with numerous other large Internet access and content providers, ensuring that you are richly connected to the entire Internet.
Internap engineered and built a global web infrastructure that continually monitors the performance of Internet backbones and automatically selects the best network path based on business rules. Today, Internap's patented technologies continue to address the inherent weaknesses of the Internet - finding potential performance problems, and routing around them.
Cisco has proven itself time and time again to provide the type of equipment this industry needs. They know that every second your network is unavailable it's costing you money! We also understand this and this is why we choose Cisco to power our network. Our border, core, and access layers of our network are all powered using high-end Cisco routers and switches. Every layer was built to be fully redundant and allows traffic to keep on moving in the event of a failure.
Our network utilizes Cisco's PfR technology. PfR utilizes advanced path selection and adaptive routing techniques to enable a performance aware network. This technology will select the best path for your data to travel based upon advanced criteria such as, reachability, delay, loss, and jitter. Performance Routing improves speed and availability by dynamically routing around network problems like black-holes and brownouts that traditional IP routing may not detect. It's intelligent load balancing capability can also optimize path selection based upon link utilization. All of this together helps make our network one of the best around!
