LiveStreamingCDN's own data centers have multiple GigE and 10GB/s connections to international backbones to ensure uptime. These connections are provided by TeliaSonera (which includes a primary direct link to Europe and backbone in Europe), GTT/nLayer, Level 3 Communications (recognized as one of the premier backbones in the North American continent), Cogent Communications (which has recently acquired a European subsidiary), and Xo Communications. We also have up to dark 60 Gbps capacity of fiber connections to the main POP in the Southeastern United States, TELX's 56 Marietta St, giving us access to over 100 national and regional providers.
Optimum routing efficiency is assured through the use of Internap's Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO™) and Noction's Network Inteligence. This technologies determine the fastest route by which to deliver content to a recipient as opposed to accepting standard provider routes. This ability is essential to any content delivery platform, particularly live streaming.
Our intelligent route optimization platforms use actual traffic to measure end-to-end performance for latency, packet loss, route stability and congestion. They automatically re-route traffic to guarantee performance levels for your critical applications. Our ability to report on network performance and cost, perform forensic analysis when problems do occur, and manage your service providers to their Service Level Agreements (SLA) provides a tremendous business advantage to our clients.
Our primary data center is multi-homed using Level 3, Cogent, TeliaSonera, XO Communications, and GTT/nLayer. Level 3 and GTT/nLayer are the largest backbone providers in the United States and TeliaSonera is the largest in Europe. This allows efficient delivery on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition, our direct connection to the 56 Marietta carrier hotel provides a link to a tremendous number of local, regional, national and international backbones.
Each service is connected using a Cisco Nexus 7000 series switches and and Cisco CRS 8 router with 10Gbps ports. The center has 70 Gbps lit and 60 Gbps dark. Second tier switches are Cisco 7000 series and are all connected redundantly in such a manner so that there is no single point of failure in the network.
