Focusing on both redundancy and performance, our “Zero-downtime” architecture allows our network to rapidly self-heal from failures without interruptions to connectivity. Additionally, not only do we connect to multiple Tier1 providers, but all core, distribution and aggregation level switching includes entirely redundant chassis allowing any routing device to fail without interrupting client connectivity.
In addition, Xfernet has implemented ActiveRoute, an intelligent routing platform with BGP optimization automation. ActiveRoute is constantly analyzing network traffic and upstream routes to improve overall BGP performance, reroute around congestion and outages, and reduce latency and packet loss.
Xfernet has worked diligently to design and implement the best possible network for our customers, and connecting directly to peers has been an important piece to this effort. A well connected network lowers the number of A/S hops and helps to prevent overall latency. Quite simply, if one network is bogged down, there is always another direct path available. Having built a strong foundation working with our existing Tier-1 Providers, we continue to add peers that boast some of the industry’s most respected networks, which should provide peace of mind to those who dread latency and slow transfers.
CORESITE ANY2 INTERNET PEERING EXCHANGE
Any2 Internet Exchange is owned and operated by CoreSite and is the largest Internet Exchange on the west coast with over 200 members. CoreSite provides direct access to Any2 switches from any CoreSite data center, with regional exchanges accessible in California and the Northeast (Boston, New York, Washington DC). Multiple switches feature a dual-core set-up for increased reliability and improved network disaster recovery configuration.
EQUINIX INTERNET EXCHANGE
The Equinix Internet Exchange provides an efficient and cost-effective means to leverage the aggregation of enterprises, content providers and networks operating within Equinix IBX centers for traffic exchange and transit, resulting in enhanced speed and reliability of network and content peering and a more robust end-user experience. Through the Equinix Internet Exchange service, customers can directly connect to each other for traffic exchange via a convenient and flexible central switching fabric managed by Equinix. This streamlined connectivity improves end-to-end network performance, reduces latency and packet loss, and lowers overall IP transit costs.
