The ITX Design NOC is OnNet with GlobalCenter (GC), Qwest Communications and GTE through three separate bandwidth-on-demand connections that enter into the building.
GC, a Tier 1 provider with a 13,000-mile fiber optic network and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology that provides an enormous 460 gigabytes per second (Gbps) of capacity worldwide, has an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) fiber node located just a few floors below the ITX Design NOC.
Qwest comes into the NOC with OC-12 line and plans to upgrade its connection to an OC-48 in the near future. Qwest also has an ATM fiber node just floors below the ITX Design NOC. Our Qwest connection enables ITX Design to offer additional redundancy and better routes to Europe, Latin America and Asia. With our carriers, our router has up to 150,000 possible routes to send each packet of traffic.
Genuity, a division of GTE, is our third Tier One Internet backbone. Genuity provides excellent network performance as a result of high-speed peering arrangements with other Tier One Internet backbone providers. The GTE global network delivers customers directly onto the Internet via a high-speed connection to its private, super-capacity backbone, including 17,000 miles of fiber and OC192 capacity. It is comprised of more than 800 U.S. local access points and approximately 1,500 international local access points in more than 150 countries.
Our hosting servers are housed in the secure and stable environment provided by our NOC. Multiple redundancy measures and our responsive server administrators make sure our NOC maintains an outstanding 99.5% uptime rating.
To guard against local power failures, the ITX Design NOC has two industrial-grade, three-phase Liebert UPS systems. These act as back-up batteries, maintaining uninterrupted power in case of surges or power outages. With these back-up systems in place, we can keep our network up and running indefinitely without relying on external power.
Our network, super fast hosting, and commitment to support is what separates us from a regular web site host.
