you be running any multicast applications on these links? Are they
real-time video or data feeds? If so I’d steer clear of any MPLS
based solutions and stick with something that gives you a deterministic path.
I’d stay away from Radianz and YIPES as I’ve had bad experiences
with them over the past year. They have a significant amount of outages
and most go unexplained.
have a global network with Global Crossing now and they average about 2-3 small
outages (less than 5 minutes) per week but their NOC engineers seem to be helpful
and respond quickly with RFOs. Proper backup paths prevent it causing
much of an issue.
not sure any of them are great…
I am currently in the process of evaluating carriers for future expansion into
international regions, primarily Asia, Europe and South America.
I am comfortable with AT&T and Verizon however I would like to make sure I
include all the major players and would like your direct feedback and
commentary in regards to any of them.
These are the key areas I am concerned with.
I am looking at two deployment options as well if anyone would like to comment.
1) A single carrier for global connectivity to all sites (mpls etc)
2) A single carrier for global regional connectivity, and in country/regional
carriers for all local offices that funnel back to regional aggregation points.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
