Quebec, Canada – (The Hosting News) – August 22, 2008 – Internet hosting infrastructure provider, iWeb Group Inc. and subsidiary of iWeb Technologies, will soon be completing its network expansion, to upgrade total network capacity to 15Gbps.
While adding three new carriers, the addition of these three new transit providers will mean better diversity, redundancy and reachability for all our customers and partners.
The following new carriers will be added to iWeb’s Network:
– T-Systems / Deutsche Telekom (In production)
– 3Men@Work / Bell Peering (In production)
– Level 3 Communications (Coming at the end of August)
With the additional transit providers, iWeb will be directly linked to more networks which will result in connections being more direct and more efficient for all customers. These additions will affect mostly the High Quality Network customers, but will also enhance incoming routes for its Redundant Unmetered Network customers; while also providing additional redundancy.
The Unmetered Network upgrade includes additional Cogent Bandwidth.
Once all the upgrades will be completed, iWeb’s network will have a total network capacity of 15 Gbps dedicated to hosting services. The High-Quality Network and incoming routes will combine the networks of 7 carriers for a total of 11 Gbps, while the Redundant Unmetered Network (Cogent-based) now totals 4 Gbps. It is important to note that each part of iWeb’s network (High Quality and Unmetered) is configured to backup the other if necessary and that customers of both networks benefit from all available routes for incoming traffic.
Below is complete list of its network composition:
– 3 Gbps with Videotron Telecom
– 3 Gbps with Tata Communications, formerly Teleglobe
– 4 Gbps with Cogent Communications (Unmetered Network)
– 1 Gbps with Peer1 Network
– 1 Gbps with Priority Colo (TorIX peering)
– 1 Gbps with Level 3 Communications (Coming at the end of August)
– 1 Gbps from 3 Men @ Work (Bell peering)
– 1 Gbps from T-Systems / Deutsche Telekom
iWeb’s first telecom link, back in 2000, was a 100 Mbps link, which had less than 1% of the capacity offered to iWeb customers currently. In the next few months, the company also expects to upgrade its main transit providers to 10Gbps.
Earlier this summer, the company attained ranking among Profit Magazine’s top 100 Canadian companies, based on revenue growth over the past 5 years. From 2002 to 2007, the company’s revenues have gone from 1.35 million to 9.82 million as of October 1st 2007, an increase of 627%; enough for iWeb to make its entry into the 100th position on the annual ranking.
The PROFIT 100 is the annual ranking which rates the top 100 Canadian companies based on the percentage of their revenue growth over a 5-year span. Produced by the business magazine PROFIT, 2008 marks the 20th edition of the ranking.
