Services

As a specialist network provider we are able to deliver high bandwidth Point to Point and Internet Access services worldwide - all under a single Service Level Agreement.

We create these networks based on your requirements.

Our Technical Design Authority will work with you to consider a range of topology schemes, before outlining the service that will work best for you.

All  network services are 100% uncontended (1:1), synchronous and designed to your exact requirements. Our Wide Area Ethernet products are all MEF compliant and adhere to stringent quality and protocol compatibility standards. Optical services utilise Tier 1 cable operators only, with carrier grade DWDM/WDM equipment where required.

All services are delivered by a dedicated project manager. Fully Managed services are pro-actively monitored for pre-determined tolerance metrics by our 24/7 NOC.

Point to Point

Ethernet Line, Wavelength, Dark Fibre

Ethernet Line is a point-to-point LAN-interconnect service supporting the transparent delivery of ethernet frames over a dedicated connection between any two sites.

The  Ethernet Line product can be delivered in several different ways with a number of different features.

Dynamic Route - A variable route from site to site, which often relies on the restoration capability inherent in an IP/MPLS routed network.

This configuration allows quick switching through a backbone network whilst providing redundancy. Should a link in the backbone network (which is carrying your traffic) fail, then a new path will be automatically selected to reroute the traffic and maintain the service. Dynamic Route build types are useful where resiliency of the service is more important than the latency of traffic passing through.

Fixed Route - A geographically defined static route or routes from site to site.

This is useful where specific routes are required to optimise latency and/or plan diversity. Fixed Route build types can be configured as either Unprotected or Protected where a pre-configured backup path is reserved to maximise the survivability of the service under failure scenarios. The typical switching time from “Worker” to “Protection” path is equal to or less than 50 ms in order to minimise traffic disruption.

A Wavelength service is a dedicated, Layer 1 optical light channel provided on multiplexed fibre optic cable. This provides high-capacity, Point-to-Point Layer 1 transparent optical data connections between two locations.

Optical technologies are used in conjunction with OTN, Mux/Demux or muxponder equipment. They provide deterministic performance and are fully transparent to higher level OSI Layer 2, Layer 3 and above protocols. Latency is not subject to variation and is determined largely by the fibre distance between the two end-points. Frame loss/bit error rates and jitter are at the lowest possible technical levels, as befitting an optical multiplexed network.

Wavelength provides fully dedicated bandwidth and are full-duplex, protocol-independent services, which means clients can use the full amount of the bandwidth supplied in either direction.

Dark Fibre is a single or pair of unmanaged optical fibres delivered between two locations.

Dark Fibre is unlit fibre supplied without electronics. The service provides clients with an infrastructure over which they can design, build and operate their own network.

Dark Fibre provides optical fibres which comply with industry standard specifications, specifically ITU G.652 and ITU G.655. As electronics are not provided client equipment determines the technology and interfaces used.

Dark Fibre is an inert connectivity product that requires optical equipment to pass light down a single strand of fibre optic cable. It's capabilities are limited only by the optical equipment used to light it. Most commonly Dark Fibre is utilised to create SDH/SONET Synchronous Optical Networks or Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexed (DWDM) networks with huge and segregated bandwidth capabilities. DWDM also benefits from being protocol and bitrate agnostic.

Dark Fibre can be utilised with existing enterprise optics (SFP/SFP+) rated to the bandwidth and distance parameters of the modules. Alternatively, with standalone optical hardware it is possible to create multiple wavelengths (or light channels) at either 10 GbE, 40 GbE and even 100 GbE.

Internet Access

Direct Internet Access, IP Transit

Direct Internet Access is a symmetrical, uncontended IP connectivity product to the whole of the public IPv4/IPv6 internet via exclusive use of leased address space.

The Direct Internet Access portfolio offers IP connectivity to client premises via an Ethernet access circuit or at a Point of Presence (PoP) via a cross connect. You will acquire peer access to all of the ISP, CDN and content provider ASNs available on the parent ISP peering list.

For IP connectivity at a client premises an Ethernet access circuit is provided with reliable ethernet frame delivery according to specific service attributes and SLAs using carrier class packet transport technology. Direct Internet Access is available on 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps & 100 Gbps ports. A minimum Committed Data Rate (CDR) of 5 Mbps can be provided. 

IP Transit is a symmetrical, uncontended IP connectivity product to the whole of the public IPv4/IPv6 internet via an ASN (Autonomous System Number) broadcast over a BGP session. The client is required to have a public Autonomous System Number obtained from a regional IP registrar such as RIPE, ARIN or APNIC (useful to content distributors looking for a route to a particular territory).

The IP Transit product portfolio provides clients with a reliable transmission delivery service at designated Points of Presence (PoPs). A cross connect is required between the PoP and the client rack. IP Transit is available on 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps & 100 Gbps ports. A minimum Committed Data Rate (CDR) of 1 Gbps can be provided.

IP Transit is established via a WAN linknet IP address with the ISP whereby your ASN is included on the ISP Global BGP IP registry. You will acquire peer access to all of the ISP, CDN and content provider ASNs available on the parent ISP peering list.

It is possible to advertise your ASN within a single IP registrar jurisdiction to multiple ISPs. This can increase your reach to a greater number of IP peers across the public internet.

For transit needs beyond 10 Gbps multiple bonded 10 Gbps ports can be presented as a Link Aggregation via Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) logical service. Alternatively a BGP Multipath and/or a equal-cost multipath (ECMP) service can be provided.

All IP Transit services adhere to the  Quality Seal and are 100% uncontended (1:1), synchronous and designed to your exact requirements.
