Our Network

Latest technology, fully populated, highly resilient and designed for performance, flexibility and high capacity.

Normally locked behind closed doors and never discussed is the Service Providers network, but not for Optinet. We’re immensely proud of what we’ve created. The network is truly state-of-the-art based upon Cisco’s ASR hardware and designed with an any-network, any-technology and every-service approach.  We use a combination of network protocol’s that enables us to virtualise customer networks at either layer 2 or layer 3 whilst protecting against every foreseeable failure in an automated fashion.

The most common cause of both scheduled and unscheduled core network down-time is change; installation of equipment and connecting new cross-connects, SFP’s or cables.  To completely mitigate this risk we’ve invested heavily to fully populate every slot, card and port and installed professional structured cabling. This not only results in swift provision of service, but also an immaculate network rack which aids troubleshooting or replacing hardware.

The network has some impressive statistics. 1440Gbps or 1.4Tbps of switching capacity and 130Million packets per second of routing capacity (100Gbps). Both of which is designed in an N+1 configuration producing a 100% core network uptime and guaranteeing resilience.

tremendous scalability and a services-optimized architecture that truly sets a new benchmark in the industry for carrier Ethernet systems
