Our robust and scalable network utilizes only routing and
switching products from industry-leaders Cisco Systems and
Juniper Networks. We use Juniper M-series routers in our border
routing layer and Cisco 3750 series switch stacks in our core
switching and aggregation layer. This setup is fully meshed with
redundant internal and external fiber connections for maximum
reliability. At the client access level we use Cisco 2960 series
switches for both our public and private networks. These
switches are connected in a bonded, redundant fashion to our
core layer to not only enhance reliability but to reduce the
risk of congestion and provide maximum throughput.
