Our data center currently has multiple bandwidth providers that ride multiple fiber connections into the data center to terminate into their equipment.

By utilizing multiple edge and distribution switches we are able to maintain 99.9% or better network up-time. We have recently upgraded the backbone of our network to utilize redundant fiber paths to all switches and replaced older equipment so we can provide IPv6 service to their customers. We keep spare replacement parts on site for all network equipment and we backup switch configs every night. New upgrades to the edge network allow for 10GB ports and larger IPv4 and IPv6 BGP tables from our providers. Our data center utilizes 10GB ports with all its providers.
