Black Coral Group / TicoSites provides connections to multiple backbones to ensure the fastest possible delivery of data to your end-users. Our network utilizes high-speed switched Ethernet and we connect with multiple tier-1 upstream providers for redundancy and optimal routing of your traffic.
We provide transit from a number of backbone providers to ensure your users receive the fastest access to your Web site and fast packet return delivery.
BGP4 – Routed Network
We employ the standard Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) in our network to ensure that data is routed via best case routing. Each packet of information is evaluated and sent over the best possible route. In the event of a router failure, packets are automatically directed to another route in our redundant network architecture.
Guaranteed Packet Delivery
Black Coral Group / TicoSites offers superior reliability of data by guaranteeing minimal packet loss in the network. And, we work with our network providers to ensure that all packets leave our network at the highest contracted speeds and are delivered to your end-users.
Our networks are designed to ensure excess capacity exists even in peak operating hours. We demand that excess bandwidth be the norm, even during the largest traffic spikes. We continue to add new connectivity/routes to ensure that this excess is retained and your content is sent to your end-users as efficiently as possible.
Our Network Providers are also our Technology Partners. They work with us to establish best-of-breed services for our network access. We have selected tier-1 upstream providers that deliver peering access for optimal routing.
