Connectivity

Robust and resilient metro Ethernet network

Coreix does not rely on any single connectivity provider; instead we employ multiple providers over our fully redundant fibre ring. This allows us to guarantee a 100% uptime accommodating for the high availability demands of our customers' mission critical applications. The deployment of multiple connectivity providers allows us to engineer data paths and re-route data should one or more of our providers experience packet loss or downtime. The Coreix on-site Network Operations Centre (NOC) monitors our connectivity 24x7x365 allowing us to identify packet loss and congestion external to our network and engineer solutions around these areas before the problem escalates.

The Coreix metro network operates over a diverse fibre ring between Telehouse Ease, Telecity HEX6/7, Telehouse Metro and our Enfield Datacentre. We guarantee 100% uptime to our metro infrastructure. Our 100% SLA is extended to the rack when utilising our optional dual hand-off.

Our Juniper and Cisco powered network utilises the most advanced self-healing attributes available which allows us to deliver on our 100% infrastructure availability guarantee. We have invested significantly and have resilient core routing equipment at multiple sites in addition to multiple peering routers on our metro ring.

Coreix takes full IPv4 and IPv6 routes from all providers and offers a fully native IPv6 network. We can provide a full range of transit products from any of the locations listed above as well as our Primary and Disaster Recovery Datacentres. Please contact us for further information.

Coreix utilises Cisco and Juniper routers at the border of our peering and core routing platform. For all switching within the datacentre we utilise Cisco - this includes the metro, aggregation and distribution layers. The majority of customer circuits are terminated on Cisco 3750, 4500, 4900 or 6500 platform. We utilise dual supervisor configurations where chassis permit and we are able to offer a range of networking services from AS31708.

Peering

Coreix is present at London Internet Exchange on both the the Foundry and Extreme network and additionally has a dual 1Gbps circuits at London Access Point. The general Coreix peering policy is open; however it must be a mutually beneficial relationship. We have higher outbound traffic ratios and as a content provider we are interested in peering with Internet Service Providers primarily.

Network Infrastructure

Coreix Limited operates AS31708, a fully resilient meshed network with 100% native IPv6 coverage. We take multiple circuits from various providers via multiple sites in order to guarantee service reliability and network resiliency . We utilise high availability protocols extensively on our network, from the metro services down to the edge to ensure that packets are delivered to their destination successfully.

Our Juniper and Cisco powered network utilises the most advanced self-healing attributes available which allows us to deliver on our 100% infrastructure availability guarantee. We have invested significantly to achieve this and have resilient core routing equipment at multiple sites in addition to multiple peering routers on our metro ring.

Our passion for a premium network does not stop at the levels of redundancy built into it. We ensure that our network is never contended and upgrades are installed whenever we reach 50% of available capacity.

Coreix utilises Cisco and Juniper routers at the border of our peering and core routing platform.
