Advantage of Colocation Bandwidth
Colocation is locating your servers in a colocation facility,
also known as a carrier hotel. Advantages of this approach include
ready availability of low cost bandwidth including 10 Mbps Ethernet,
100 Mbps Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet options. These data
centers also offer backup power, environmental control and high
levels of security.
Carrier Ethernet is Available
Carrier Ethernet Services are already available in major metropolitan
areas from competitive carriers such as XO Communications. You
can order 10 Mbps Ethernet, 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet or Gigabit
Ethernet connections to match your current network bandwidth.
What is PBT?
PBT stands for Provider Backbone Transport. It's an adaption of
Ethernet to extend Layer-2 switching into the WAN transport network.
PBT was pioneered by Nortel and will be standardized by the IEEE
How does managed security work?
Companies that specialize in network security install VPNs and
managed firewalls that they remotely monitor from a network operations
center. A dedicated security team that specializes in knowing
what threats are out there, when they are coming for your network
and what to do to mitigate the threat provides the vigilance for
a multitude of clients.
What is the Technical Advantage
of Carrier Ethernet
Carrier Ethernet essentially extends you Local Area Network using
the same Ethernet switched protocol that you are currently familiar
with. You can have multiple locations hundreds or thousands of
miles apart appear to be on the same company LAN.
