when internet is mission critical to you

About

atom86 makes sure that you can rely on internet in mission critical infrastructures.

We design, build and manage mission critical company infrastructures where failure is not an option. With that principle in mind we have built an internet backbone where the customer stays connected to the internet even if half of that backbone is not operational due to any circumstances.

  • You matter to us

    We are dedicated to all our customers, whatever the size or business. For better or for worse...

  • 24/7 NOC

    You can contact our Network Operations Center 24/7 and within 10 minutes you are talking to one of our backbone engineers.

  • Fast delivery

    We deliver as soon as possible. If circumstances demand, we deliver within 2 hours if possible.

  • Proven technology

    We understand how critical your connection is. Therefore we built the network with Juniper and Cisco.

  • Upgrade policy

    You will not experience packetloss or latency within our backbone because we always have redundant bandwidth.

  • Always on

    By default you will be connected with a high availability configuration.

  • Multiple upstreams

    Maintenance or outage with one of our upstream providers will not affect your infrastructure. In addition, we offer the possibility to reroute traffic.

  • Access to expertise

    Our customers have direct access to our engineers for support on any network related issue.

  • Communication

    You receive timely maintenance announcements allowing you to anticipate.

  • Reporting

    We provide portal access for traffic and billing information. Service Incident Reports are sent out within 24hours.

Network

Check out our robust infrastructure

The core of our network consists of two Juniper MX960 3D routers. The Juniper MX960 3D platform has the largest capacity in the industry providing switching and routing capacity at speeds up to 2.6 Terabits per second (Tbit/s). All customer configurations are channeled through these routers enabling us to control the amount of data going to the edges per customer safeguarding the Edge access network devices.

All physical customer connections are delivered on Cisco 6500 Catalyst switches. The switches are redundantly connected over diversely routed Dark Fibers - enabling dual Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) sessions to both core routers for BGP customers. For non-BGP customers, the automatic failover is handled through the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). This guarantees uptime in case of maintenance or in the event of an outage on part of our backbone.

The Cisco6500 has been introduced in 1999 and has an installed base of more than 800,000 units. It is still one of Cisco's flagship switches.

All locations within our network are redundantly connected with diversely routed Dark Fiber. As a consequence, the customer connection will keep working even if one path is unavailable through maintenance or an unforeseen circumstance. The use of Dark Fibers also gives us the possibility to upgrade capacity using higher capacity optics, ports, CWDM and/or DWDM. Within our backbone an upgrade policy at 50% utilization is in place.

At our Network Operations Center, all routers, switches, backbone links, upstream providers, data flows and customers are monitored 24/7. We use monitoring software from Nagios, Cacti, PRTG and Plixer (Scrutinizer). In case of a critical alert , our engineers are automatically paged and will investigate the issue.

The NOC is also responsible for the follow up of customer tickets that are being emailed via noc@service.atom86.net.

The selection of upstream providers for atom86 is based on their track record and proven quality. For us and our customers the most important selection criterium has been and still is: no congestion with peers.

atom86 is a Tier2 IP Transit provider with multiple providers for upstream capacity. Using Tier2s has various benefits for our customers:
• More routes than just one Tier1.
• The shortest and/or more efficient route from a cost and quality stand-point.
• Quality is leading instead of cost savings (hot potato routing).
• Not affected by peering-wars between Tier1s.
• Availibility of alternative paths to a destination.
• Renesys (the authority in global Internet intelligence): “Being single homed is dangerous especially behind a (near) Tier1”.

Some route solely on price, atom86 routes on quality
