Our new Brocade Core Network has arrived!
July 27, 2016
Since starting our network less than 12 months ago, we’ve seen significant growth in customer base but also in network utilisation. Our existing core routers have been doing well with this surge in bandwidth however we wanted to add further redundancy and even more capacity with our new product offerings and services.
After an extensive evaluation process, we selected 4 Brocade CER-2024F-4X-RT-AC Core routers to run our Sydney and Melbourne networks.
These routers come with 4 x 10Gbit SFP ports and 24 x 1gbit SFP ports each. The network is setup to be fully redundant with MPLS to our Melbourne core. This also gives us room for further expansions into other points of presence.
It has become to apparent in recent events with other providers that not spending adequate amounts to ensure redundancy can lead to significant downtime and stress, we simply won’t take the risk with our customers. These new routers were a significant investment at roughly $25,000 each with licences, redundant power supplies and 4 hour replacement. We are dedicated to providing our customers the best service, and we’ll continue to invest heavily into our infrastructure to ensure that we remain the industry leader.
