Check out our robust infrastructure

The core of our network consists of two Juniper MX960 3D routers. The Juniper MX960 3D platform has the largest capacity in the industry providing switching and routing capacity at speeds up to 10.56Tbps. All customer configurations are channeled through these routers enabling us to control the amount of data going to the edges per customer safeguarding the Edge access network devices.

All physical customer connections are delivered on switches with speeds upto 100GE. The switches are redundantly connected over diversely routed Dark Fibers - enabling dual Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) sessions to both core routers for BGP customers. For non-BGP customers, the automatic failover is handled through the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). This guarantees uptime in case of maintenance or in the event of an outage on part of our backbone.

It is our goal to have all locations within our network redundantly connected with diversely routed Dark Fiber. As a consequence, the customer connection will keep working even if one path is unavailable through maintenance or an unforeseen circumstance. The use of Dark Fibers also gives us the possibility to upgrade capacity using higher capacity optics, ports, CWDM and/or DWDM. Within our backbone an upgrade policy at 50% utilization is in place.

At our Network Operations Center, all routers, switches, backbone links, upstream providers, data flows and customers are monitored 24/7. We use monitoring software from Nagios, LibreNMS and Plixer (Scrutinizer). In case of a critical alert , our engineers are automatically paged and will investigate the issue.

The NOC is also responsible for the follow up of customer tickets that are being emailed via noc@atom86.net.

The selection of upstream providers for atom86 is based on their track record and proven quality. For us and our customers the most important selection criterium has been and still is: no congestion with peers.

atom86 is a Tier2 IP Transit provider with multiple providers for upstream capacity. Using Tier2s has various benefits for our customers:
• More routes than just one Tier1.
• The shortest and/or more efficient route from a cost and quality stand-point.
• Quality is leading instead of cost savings (hot potato routing).
• Not affected by peering-wars between Tier1s.
• Availibility of alternative paths to a destination.
• Renesys (the authority in global Internet intelligence): “Being single homed is dangerous especially behind a (near) Tier1”.

High speed cost effective and redundant connectivity services for your network.

We design, build and manage mission critical infrastructures where failure is not an option. With that principle in mind we have built a backbone where the customer stays connected even if half of that backbone is not operational due to any circumstances.

  • You matter to us

    We are dedicated to all our customers, whatever the size or business. For better or for worse...

  • 24/7 NOC

    You can contact our Network Operations Center 24/7 and within 10 minutes you are talking to one of our backbone engineers.

  • Fast delivery

    We deliver as soon as possible. If circumstances demand, we deliver within 1 hour if possible.

  • Proven technology

    We understand how critical your connection is. Therefore we built two separate networks. In our IP Connect network we use Juniper core routers. Our DC Connect and Cloud Connect network uses MPLS.

  • Upgrade policy

    You will not experience packetloss or latency within our backbone because we always have redundant bandwidth.

  • Always on

    By default you will be connected with a high availability configuration.

  • Multiple upstreams

    Maintenance or outage with one of our upstream providers will not affect your infrastructure. In addition, we offer the possibility to reroute traffic.
