Liquid Web Completes Comprehensive Network Upgrades

Web hosting and managed services provider Liquid Web Inc. announced on Thursday that it has activated OC-12 internet service with MCI/UUnet to it's Lansing datacenter. This announcement coincides with the official activation of an SBC OC-48 redundant diverse path SONET ring and a series of major network equipment upgrades within Liquid Web.

The Liquid Web network upgrade project which was carried out over a series of months includes a sizable acquisition of top of the line Cisco networking gear. Included in this upgrade are the addition of multiple redundant Cisco GSR 12000 border routers and a fully redundant network core featuring Cisco 6509's with Sup720 processors. The Liquid Web core network is able to handle up to 400 million packets per second and a transfer rate of 720 gigabits per second. This advanced configuration establishes a high performance self healing network that is able to survive equipment failures without performance implications or interruptions to client connectivity.

"We are proud to have obtained connectivity from what is without argument the most connected provider on the internet, MCI/UUnet. The decision to continue to select only the highest quality Tier 1 bandwidth providers represents what we consider a company wide commitment to creating the highest performance network possible." said Matthew Hill, CEO of Liquid Web Inc.

More information on the specifics of the upgrades can be found on the Liquid Web datacenter page located at:
