Europe knows more than 150 providers of dark fiber (i.e. fiber
cable for which the service provider has not provided modulating
electronics). Some with a very local footprint, some with a nation or
Europe wide footprint and some deliver world-wide services. In
get the best value for your money, we advise you to request pricing
from several players, including some of the utility companies and
other local providers, that often have good deals, before you invest in
dark fiber for each part or leg of your network.
Peering is the exchange of traffic between
ISPs. In order to settle the terms to which this exchange takes place
ISPs use peering agreements which often do not include an exchange of
money. This helps to reduce the costs of IP Traffic in a significant
way. One of the largest costs facing any ISP nowadays are the upstream
capacity costs of connections. Peering arrangements at an
exchange reduce the need to send IP traffic through a bandwidth
upstream provider. One single connection to an exchange point may
reduce the need for multiple connections. We can take care of making
peering arrangements for you with any major ISP on one of the European
The end-to-end flexibility and cost-effectiveness of IP provide
ideal platform for advanced integrated services. As a competitive
provider of internet services, you need high-performance IP
connectivity to guarantee your customers instant access and quality of
service. In a transient marketplace, you must also be able to respond
quickly to sudden market moves and escalated customer expectations.
IP-Transit is ideal for the service provider, operator or carrier that
already owns and manages its own IP addresses and AS number. Available
bandwidths range from 64 Kbit/s to 155 Mbit/s (up to 2.5 Gbit/s on
request). Connection is made via any of your Points of Presence
directly to the IP backbone of the Carrier of your choice.
There is an incredible modernization task facing the
industry to digitalize the local loop so that high speed end-to-end
networks perform efficently. The new public network requires an
updated broadband infrastructure that has very high capacities, offers
multichannel service and can accommodate voice, data and video streams.
In Europe today there are more than 400
service providers offering local loop services. Various technologies
like xDSL, Wireless, Ethernet, Fiber and copper are offered in many
flavours. We make sure you are connected to the provider that best
meets your needs.
The Internet is a worldwide network of networks. These different
types of networks are connected together using the Internet
protocol (IP). An Internet Exchange is a place where Internet
Service Providers (ISPs) can interconnect these independent
networks and exchange Internet traffic with each other. This
exchanging of national and/or international IP traffic on an
Internet Exchange is generally known as ’peering’. We
