Our network utilizes routing and switching products from Brocade, Cisco Systems, and Juniper Networks, the leaders in the industry. We utilize redundant Brocade MLXe routers as our core routers/switches, Cisco 6500 and Juniper EX8200 (depending on location) switches in our distribution layer, and Cisco 2960 and Juniper EX2200 switches in our aggregation/customer layer. Additional network equipment includes an InterNAP FCP to optimize overall network routing and performance, assuring the lowest latency and jitter to sustain high frequency trading, voice services, and game server providers. In addition, redundant 10 Gigabit Ethernet circuits are used across the entire core of the network to reduce the risks of internal congestion due to DDoS attacks and to maintain optimal flexibility.
