Powerful Servers and Fast Connections
Web surfers are impatient. Slow loading sites will
lose traffic and business. We make sure this does not happen to the
sites we host.
The Network Operations Center in Baltimore,
Maryland is "OnNet" with Frontier Global Center (FGC), which means
that your website is placed on a collection of fast server
computers placed directly on the Internet backbone. The fiber optic
line can handle the bandwidth of a T3 or an OC3, and with FGC's
Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, it can handle
several times the bandwidth of an OC3.
We share the digital distribution architecture
of FGC, which is comprised of more than 25 high-speed private
peering connections to major Internet carriers such as MCI, Sprint,
UUNET, AT&T, AOL, Best, Erols, and others. FGC also has
high-speed links to 8 public exchanges including both MAE East and
West and several NAPS. To use an analogy, the private peering
connections allow data to travel from New York to LA on a non-stop
flight, while the public exchanges require a stop over.
Fast Data Transfer
Often providers operate their networks at three
to four times responsible capacity, and as a result the
corresponding transfer times reach over 300ms for each hop along
the net. Our network daily average is 6.5% of its capacity, with
mid-day peak spikes reaching only 15.5% capacity. Our transfer
times range from 15 to 80ms routinely.
