Meshed Network Infrastructure
Our network consists of numerous levels of redundancy and the capability to scale as needed. Our uplink to the data network is comprised of two gigabit ports which are connected to a pair of Cisco Catalyst 6509, carrier-grade switches running HSRP (Hot Swappable Routing Protocol). Should one of our uplinks fail, we have failover to the remaining, working uplink. Our Internet-connected switches are made up of Cisco 4000 series units that are cross-meshed with Internap’s switch, for maximum reliability. For customers hosted at our Sungard facility, we have mirrored Cisco 4000-series switch cross-connected with Juniper carrier-grade switches.
Our security perimeter consists of a mirrored pair of Cisco PIX 520 firewalls configured in an active/passive arrangement. If one of the units were to fail, the network stays running so you can continue to serve your clients.
