Atlantic.Net's regional data network was built with three goals
in mind: speed, quality and reliability. Since its inception in
1995, the network has evolved from an Internet link for users in
Gainesville and Ocala into a regional high-speed data backbone able
to support Internet, voice and multimedia applications in locations
throughout the southeastern United States.
network redundancy, coupled with hub-and-spoke and meshed-hub topology,
allows us to deliver accurate customer data faster and more consistently.
The network is built around IP packet switching, which allows build-outs
with high levels of redundancy at a significantly lower cost. Atlantic.Net's
network is built on top of Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) "rings,"
which are redundant and self-healing in nature. As a result, a fiber-optic
cable cut will not interrupt the operation of Atlantic.Net's primary
network, providing greater reliability.
Atlantic.Net's regional network is a best-in-class example of a
private data network. In today's market, customers demand high-speed
access to the public Internet. While most access providers align
themselves with a single Internet backbone, Atlantic.Net has strategically
overbuilt its Internet topology, with multiple T-3s to separate
carriers. By connecting to the largest carriers, Atlantic.Net users
do not have to cross a congested network to reach Internet sites
and other providers.
As a member of the Cisco Powered Network program, Atlantic.Net is
part of an elite group of Internet companies whose commitment to
delivering advanced and reliable Internet services is recognized
by Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking. Atlantic.Net's Cisco
Powered Network status reinforces its commitment to building its
regional network into an Internet Supercarrier, capable of transmitting
high speed data and voice transmissions by cable modem, DSL and
