Network diversity is a term that gets used often to assure customers that there is redundancy built in with their services. But are you truly getting a diverse solution?
So, how does a truly diverse network look like?
– Unique fibre paths that run alongside the power network cables instead of utilising shared infrastructure with other telco providers
– Fibre entering buildings through the switch room instead of the MDF room
– Cables buried deeper underground and passing through owned property
– Central office (CO)/Exchange diversity as a default service with auto failover capability in the event of a network outage.
– 2-tier network design with fewer number of hops needed for data to travel, therefore enabling lower latency and lesser failure points
