Claranet ISP Upgrades Key Atlantic Link
By: MarkJ - 29 November, 2006 (9:32 AM)

Claranet has announced a successful connection to the Hibernia Atlanticís high performance cable network, which crosses the North Atlantic between London and New York City:

Through physical diversity, the network connection will offer reliability to Claranetís business clients. The network resiliency of the connection will allow Claranet to continue to operate industry leading service level agreements (SLAs) for its customers.

This agreement comes after Claranet yesterday completed a major upgrade to its network delivering a ten-fold speed increase to Claranet's core network.

The investment has seen the introduction of £2.3 million worth of the latest Gigabit (Gb) switch router (GSR) technology - the Cisco GSR XR. This router technology is heavily deployed in the United States and has been proven in Claranet's laboratory tests. Claranet is one of the UK's earliest adopters of this technology in a core network.

These recent announcements and website updates suggest that Claranet may well be awakening from its otherwise dormant state. Over the past few years the ISP has done little to keep up with the consumer market and fallen behind, having once been among the best and most competitive providers.
