Actius in the New Year

We have two main PoPs in London, one at City Lifeline (80 Clifton Street) and one at Redbus Interhouse. An OC-48 (2.4Gbps) fibre optic ring links these two sites with our Docklands office and 10 other telehouses in London, giving us the ability to interconnect quickly and economically with a large number of carriers and ISPs. Each PoP houses a Telsis telecoms switch, IVR, dial-up servers and VoIP gateways, providing redundancy in case of a site failure.

Our telecoms network is interconnected with BT at both PoPs in such a way that, should one switch fail, all traffic will be routed to the other, thus maintaining our ability to handle inbound traffic. We have over 2Gbps of upstream internet bandwidth available, again, spread between our PoPs to minimise the effects of any single failure.
