Network Upgrades coming September 2013

Posted on July 31, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized

As the demand for quality internet service continues to grow it is important for service providers to maintain a network that is reliable, secure, and has the strength to perform. In the past few years liNKCity has experienced a rapid amount of growth, and the demand on the network has prompted a network wide upgrade taking place in the fall of 2013.

The first major component of the upgrade is increasing the capacity of the network backbone. The current liNKCity network backbone is 1 gigabit. Once the network upgrade is complete the backbone will increase to 10 Gigabits. With this sizable increase, liNKCity will be able to continue their growth to new heights while still providing the reliable quality of service customers have come to enjoy.

Other upgrades to the network will provide additional fault tolerance increasing the reliability of an already consistent connection, and increased security by adding new edge routers, and redundant cross connect switches. These routers and switches will separate outside threats from attacking the “core” of the network providing customers with greater peace of mind when accessing the internet at their home or business.

The massive improvements will ensure that liNKCity is here to meet the needs of North Kansas City homes and business for many years to come.
