ASI Network

Avalon Systems (ASI) Network Technical Profile
 
The Avalon Systems, Inc. (ASI) network has been engineered from the ground up to provide the fastest speeds coupled with the most reliability. Our entirely switched, Cisco powered network employs Cisco 7513 class routers and top of the line APC UPS equipment to accommodate the high-availability demands of the internet's most popular websites.

Connectivity
  ASI utilizes connections to multiple Tier1 backbones, such as UUNET and Verio to ensure that data reaches the end-user in the fastest, most efficient manner possible. The latest expansion of the ASI network data center has included a doubling of the server co-location area, the addition of an OC3 circuit, and a new T3 to UUNET.

BGP4 Routing
  ASI runs the Border Gate Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing. The BGP4 protocol is a standard that allows for the evaluation of each packet of information sent out from the ASI network. Each packet of information is evaluated and sent over the fastest route possible.

Bandwidth Utilization
 
The ASI Network currently operates at less than 50% capacity during peak hours. This allows for us to accommodate even the largest spikes in traffic that are often associated with the most popular websites. We are always adding network connectivity and new routes in an effort to make sure content is delivered to end users as efficiently as possible. Because the ASI network is multi-homed, downtime is virtually eliminated.
