Network & connectivity

Low latencies throughout the world, due to our 1,000 Gbit backbone

Network

The network is the heart of our company. We have made every investment necessary, to avoid bottlenecks and breakdowns.

Juniper

Numerous Juniper routers of the MX-series ensure smooth traffic flow among different sites. All of the used devices are redundant and meet the latest technical standards, while being professionally maintained.

All models used vary from MX80 to MX480. They are equipped with multiple 10 Gigabit interfaces to ensure sufficient bandwidth within our network. We operate an MRP (Metro Ring Protocol) within Frankfurt, totaling a capacity of up to 480 Gigabits. Our carriers and exchange points are connected to multiple data centers for autonomy and fail-safety. A modern VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) setup ensures that productive operations continue in the event of failure and maintenance – the transition is hardly noticeable. All components in our core-switch area are redundant as well. Thereby, offering maximal operational reliability.

HP

In the access area we use the HP series ProCurve 2600 and 2800. HP (Hewlett Packard) is characterized by lifelong warranty, durable design and high fault-tolerance. All switches are connected t our backbone with at least 1 Gigabit.

Our choice of carriers is crucial for reliability, connectivity and latency.

Currently we have direct uplinks to these carriers:

30 Gbit/s Deutsche Telekom (DTAG)

200 Gbit/s GTT

100 Gbit/s DE-CIX

100 Gbit/s NL-IX

200 Gbit/s Telia

200 Gbit/s NTT

200 Gbit/s Cogent

Due to our peering-points, we can reach these network operators by the shortest route:

Arcor/Vodafone

Freenet

Hansenet

Swisscom

Belgacom

several hundred other providers

Guaranteed performance

Our entire network design is entirely homogenous. Our standards are consistently met to be able to act immediately, if necessary. All components are constantly kept on site more than is necessary. Our network is never overloaded – to avoid short-term bottlenecks our uplinks are always below 50% load. Hence, peak times, short-term peaks and short-term ad hoc expansions pose no problem.
