Way3 Hosting uses a network second to none. The core network is powered entirely by Cisco utilizing a pair of Cisco Catalyst 6509’s. This industry leading, high capacity equipment provides just about the best performance available and supplies every server with true wire speed with redundant connectivity.
While eliminating the multiple layers of switches and routers between the actual server and the upstream connection, we believe this reduces latency and reduces the multiple points of failure in the chain. Reducing the number of ‘hops’, ultimately increases the speed and availability of your website.
With over 100G of bandwidth available with carriers such as Level 3 Communications, Savvis, Comcast, Tata Communications, as well as over 75 other carriers on the Terremark public peering fabric, Way3 Hosting has you covered.
