Redundant Ports

We encourage our members and participants with port speeds of 1Gbps on 10Gbps interface (burstable) and above to connect to multiple core sites for redundancy. The following rules apply in order to receive one or multiple "redundant ports" at no additional cost:

  • For each paid port (1Gbps on 10Gbps interface and above) at a core site you can get one free "redundant port" at a different core site.
  • Aggregated traffic of all ports must stay below 80% (peak) of the total capacity of all paid ports.
