Low latency worldwide with our 1,500+ gigabit backbone.
Network & connectivity with firstcolo
The network is the heart of our business.
We have not spared any investments to be able to completely exclude bottlenecks and failures.
To ensure the best possible connectivity to every endpoint, our traffic mix consists of 100 percent Tier-1 carriers and our customers benefit from the resulting high availability of our sites. We realise the lowest latencies within our infrastructure through our direct connection to the world's largest peering point, the DE-CIX. In this way, we also enable a direct connection and optimal connectivity to over 1000 networks. In order to offer our customers the best possible protection against cybercrime such as DDoS attacks, we have upgraded our backbone to over 1500 Gbit/s. As a result, even large DDoS attacks can be mitigated without any problems.
At the same time, our strong backbone allows us to realise a much higher connection for customer racks than you are used to with other service providers. In addition to redundant 10 Gbit uplinks as standard, our offer also includes up to N*100 Gbit uplinks for customer racks. The comprehensive range of IP transit services is also not a problem at our points of presence. Therefore, you benefit from our backbone regardless of the location. Choosing the carrier plays a decisive role for reliability, quality of the connection and latency.
For the best latencies in all areas, we operate uplinks to the following carriers:
In the heart of the internet:

Just a few minutes' walk from the world's largest peering point.
