High Performance
Route-optimized Network

Our network is designed to reliably serve your business and projects that depend on massive amounts of high-performance bandwidth at a competitive price, without sacrificing redundancy and availability. Some examples of applications well suited for our network include: streaming video or streaming audio, VoIP, video conferencing, real-time and MMO games, content distribution, file download/upload, web crawling, data backups, and others.

Our network uses redundant carrier class Cisco 6509 routers with the powerful SUP720-3BXL engines and maximum memory to handle the full and ever-expanding global route table. As with all multi-homed provider networks we use BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) for fault-tolerant routing over multiple Internet connections. We use multiple Gigabit connections to Tier-1 carriers and direct peering with over 100 other networks. BGP is the standard for providing fault-tolerant routing in a multi-homed network such as hosting data centers. It ensures fault-tolerance and that traffic is routed through the fewest other networks to arrive it’s destination. However, BGP does not have any metric or ability to determine the performance of a route in terms of latency, speed, packet loss or jitter (variations in latency). All of these characteristics can impact the performance of your applications. In order to provide the best possible connectivity, we have implemented route optimization technology from InterNAP called the Flow Control Platform (FCP).

The InterNAP FCP watches and analyzes all traffic in and out of our network for signs of performance difficulties and to determine where traffic is going. Then, it sends benevolent traceroute probes to the remote networks to determine which of our numerous paths to the Internet performs best to each of those destinations at that time. If the current best-performing path differs from the one in use, then the InterNAP FCP makes a route change to optimize our outbound traffic to that specific location. This process is performed thousands of times per hour. At any given time, we may have over 50,000 performance-based route changes to the BGP routing tables in our routers, representing huge improvements in performance over standard BGP and what it might be like if we had not gone to this length to ensure the best performing network possible.

Our network was built and is continually maintained by experienced Cisco certified Engineers with CCNP and CCIE certifications. It is monitored 24×7 to maintain peak performance and availability.

Our network was built to serve the demanding, cost-sensitive, high-bandwidth dependent customer. The prices for this bandwidth option are listed below and are listed as the incremental cost to any server listed on our Buy Now page.
