I wanted to let everyone know that we’ve very recently turned up gigabit connectivity with one of the nations leading Tier-1 providers, Time Warner Telecom. With the recent move to our new datacenter facility we’ve introduced lots of changes to the network including providers and hardware changes.
Our Cisco network has been further stabilized by fully separating our access, core, and distribution layers. What does this mean for the end user — ultimately more reliability. We’ve fully implemented both spanning tree, and HSRP which means that any given host has multiple paths out of the network at any given time without manual intervention.
Adding Time Warner to the network should provide some great nationwide access as well. As many of you know Time Warner is the parent corporation of AOL. The TWTC and AOL networks should add some great speed to end users trying to access websites on the Spry network.
