Network Technology

Most networks are linked to the Internet via a single connection. If that goes down, you’re out of business. That is why CyberGate has multiple connections to the Internet from a variety of providers. This not only provides redundancy in the event of a problem with a particular connection, it also greatly enhances performance by effectively reducing the number of hops required to complete a connection.

So lets say your customer is trying to access your server through the Internet via their local

ISP, which is connected to the Internet by network A. And say your server is hosted by a company that has a single connection to the Internet provided by network B. Because the two providers are not directly connected, your customer might have to go through several other networks until he finally reached your server.

That is why CyberGate maintains multiple connections to different networks. We have so many, in fact, that odds are we have a direct connection to the network to which your customer is connected. This dramatically reduces response time.

Of course, multiple networks aren’t going to help you if the physical cable with which you connect to them is damaged. To eliminate this risk, CyberGate uses SONET ring technology to connect to the Internet. With a SONET ring, if the fiber optic cable is cut at any point, data is automatically re-routed along the opposite direction, providing self-healing access around failed network components. To further ensure your connectivity, we provide additional redundancy by maintaining a second, isolated SONET ring.
