Our Network Providers uses BGP4 (Border Gateway Protocol), a router technology that is essential so that if one network has a crisis they are quarantined and business continues for everyone else.
We are now using a fantastic trio of quality backbone Network Providers and should anything happen to one of them the speed of your service will not be affected. Any one of the Network Providers can carry the entire load.
Now that we are building some of the world’s fastest solid-state servers, we are not willing to have them slowed down by second rate backbone Providers.
Handling the bulk of our traffic are backbone providers Level 3, Abovenet, Sprint and Savvis.
In addition we have another 90+ peering relationships that can help provide the shortest routes possible. All of these come to us via the country’s most wired city being Seattle, Washington.
Forbes annual list of the 30 most connected cities in US, has Seattle in the number one spot, which makes their “meeting room” a great place to connect to other networks.
SecureWebs is enjoying the best quality in Network Providers and connectivity we have ever had as a business. Our network no longer uses copper except for the actually server Cat6 patch cables. In fact we relocated the data center in 2007 just so we could replace our dedicated circuits like T3′s (traditional local copper network lines) with all fiber connections that have no limit on the available bandwidth. This allows us to service any number of high bandwidth clients providing streaming services for audio, video, loading graphics and insuring overall quicker website response time.
