New MPLS core network
As part of our investment in infrastructure, our network has also been upgraded to create a more fault-tolerant core. The network, running on Brocade equipment, now has capacity to see us through to 2016 for our core messaging and voice services!
We’ve also been working on upgrading all our customer facing messaging platforms and voice platforms – a total investment of around £1.5m. The benefits of this investment, we hope, will be felt by you, our customers, over the coming months by way of increased SMS throughput, better functionality and improved call quality.
The MPLS core, shown in red, spans our main sites – aql’s DC2, DC3 and three other sites – along with our peering points in Telehouse London, Telecity Williams Manchester, and Ericsson Barton Dock.
