Our Network

Infrastructure is nothing without connectivity. Ours is world class.

From inception, our network has been designed with two objectives in mind: no single point of failure, and minimal latency

Connecting our data centres is a fully resilient fibre ring which provides resiliency and diversity to minimise the impact of a failure. Each data centre network hub houses a pair of Cisco Catalyst 7600 series modular routers each equipped with dual supervisors and power supplies. Each router has a range of 7600 series fabric-enabled line cards to support both fibre and copper connections, enabling 100Mbps through to 10Gbps connections for customers in any location.

Our national MPLS enabled network enables private circuits to be provided to customers not only between our datacentre sites but to their offices or customer locations.

Our internet breakout locations have are equipped with best of breed Cisco networking hardware. Transit is provided by a blend of Tier 1 providers and private peering agreements to ensure that your content takes the fastest route to its destination.

Automatic systems constantly monitor our entire network, transit links and servers. In the event of any problem, our data centre teams are on site 24 hours a day. We hold on-site spares for the critical equipment that powers our network to assist us in ensuring that we maintain our 100% uptime guarantee.


Our network routes over 40Gbps of traffic at peak times and has over 100Gbps of internet capacity available at any time. Each of the switches has a 720 Gbps backplane fabric giving an even greater capacity.

Our customers have the ability to connect to our network in more than one location thus increasing their own service resiliency. Our managed hosting customers can pass traffic between their own ports and can even request secure private services running on our MPLS backbone.
