We have now added Tata Communications to our network, adding a 10 GigE to them out of Chicago with a 10 GigE getting added in New York over the coming months. With this addition, as well as a new Inteliquent circuit in New York, our network now has 113 Gbit/sec of capacity to the Internet!
Tata Communications was added to our network due to their very strong connectivity to India as well as other developing countries and markets. Since they had acquired Teleglobe, they had continued to expand their presence into many markets under-served by other carriers, giving us better overall global connectivity. Tata Communications is also a Tier 1 global carrier and, according to Renesys, is one of the top 8 global IP networks in the world. This now means that we connect to 6 of the 8 largest IP networks in the world, Level3/Global Crossing, NTT, Inteliquent, Cogent, and now Tata. Along with our InterNAP FCP we feel that this network mix, along with our hundreds of direct peering relationships, gives us one of the highest performing networks in the industry. Combine that with our 100% network uptime SLA and we doubt you'll find a better quality network product anywhere.
Not only does this increase our network reach and performance, it also increases our network capacity, giving us 113 Gbit/sec of Internet capacity. This capacity allows us to serve the needs of even the largest demands for capacity and scalability, while assuring we do not see any of the negative affects of network congestion, even during large traffic spikes.
We have come a long way in the last 15 years, but network performance has always been a major focus of ours, and hopefully our ever-growing and expanding network is a good demonstration of that commitment.
