Across 65,000km of optical fiber, our global network footprint connects more than 300 Points of Presence (PoPs) in 35 countries. Whether you’re a startup or a Fortune 500, our network can be the backbone of your business, connecting you directly to everyone and everyone worth connecting to.
When it comes to connectivity, you can never have too much certainty. Which is why we developed our red and blue networks.
This strict separation of two geographically diverse networks delivers 99.999% reliability. And as both the red and blue networks have similar delay performance, delivery doesn’t suffer if one of them goes down. In contrast to most carriers, we have a high level of PoP diversity. All international gateway PoPs and heavily trafficked cities have a minimum of two identical PoPs, at two different locations, to guarantee performance.
Crossings in the network are, in practice, unavoidable. But we are constantly rebuilding our network to minimize the risks.
Where red-blue can’t be applied, documented standards – aimed at resilience by design – allow for meshing and ring concepts.
Further, we try to double everything that’s feasible, including power, so if something happens it won’t affect our customers. And we are always on the lookout for new ways to improve our entire system.
