Our engineers work with you to configure the optimal network connectivity to meet your Internet, dedicated servers colocation and cloud strategy.

Our Infrastructure

At our Routing layer we use a mix of Juniper MX204, MX104, and MX80s which can be scalled between 160Gbps - 800Gbps. Our routing layer to our Core/Distribution layer and are connected with multiple 40G circuits to our Cisco Nexus Layer. As we get closer to the customer we bring 20G-40G to each Access layer (Cisco Nexus) Switches. Customer hand offs on access layer is a full 1Gbps (giving our customers the FULL burst capability they deserve).

Throttling / Port Blocking

We belive in net-nuetrality! We do not prioritize packet transmissions to any destination limit or block ports or QoS. We belive that the customer and the internet as a whole are best served when there is no limits on the application layer.
