Our network management teams operate NOCs in Houston and Dallas to assure the most sophisticated and comprehensive systems monitoring, and complete monitoring back-up in the event of any emergency. We leverage state of the art network monitoring software combined with highly defined monitoring and escalation procedures to ensure the highest standards for security, reliability, performance and systems availability.

  • Redundant network cores in multiple data centers means that if a router or high-level network appliance goes down for any reason, there is no loss of service.
  • Gigabit cross-connects between multiple data centers assures that data moves quickly. And if any one data center were to experience network connectivity issues, it would simply route outgoing data through other centers.
The Planet ensures that our system automatically measure the latency of key network routes and sends client data to the Internet along the best possible route.
