In 2005, Televergence Solutions initiated a facility and network redesign focused on disaster recovery and uptime. Realizing that traditional colocation and bundled IP connections were not inherently designed for a telecom carrier; our goal was a network edge transformation into a self-managed entity that viewed traffic flows and managed the asymmetrical nature of Real Time Transport Protocol (RTP) packets.
Building from a clean slate, each regional Point of Presence (POP) is built in a carrier neutral facility that utilizes diverse power and fiber optics paths. These POPs are islands unto themselves and are maintained with buildout and capacity designed for the complete failure of a site. Each site is configured as a Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) entity with a dedicated provider independent IP space, Cisco based edge routing and core switching with a high density Dell blade server design.
