Industry analysis reveals that 70% of downtime of over 10 hours
with any ISP is caused by telephone circuit failure. With Midco2000,
circuit failure is virtually eliminated. That's because our NOC is
in the same building as GlobalCenter, Qwest and GTE. There is no
phone circuit between Midco2000 and these providers. Instead, there
is a direct connection between our Cisco 7500 routers and theirs.
Midco2000's providers also have peering connections with other major
Tier 1 providers that allow traffic to be switched to alternate
backbones should the need arise.
Uninterruptible Power System
To guard against local power failures, Two
industrial-grade, three-phase Liebert UPS systems are in use. These act as
back-up batteries, maintaining uninterrupted power in case of surges
or power outages. With these back-up systems in place, we can keep
our network up and running indefinitely without relying on external
We keep spare servers online of all CPU configurations. If a server
were to experience a hardware failure, we would turn a key, grab the
handle on the drive, pull it out and insert it into an identical
standby CPU. We would then reboot the second machine, and the server
would be up and running again in a matter of minutes.
Midco2000 recognizes that downtime is not an option for your web site.
That's why we invest heavily in hardware and facilities that ensure
that your Site(s) are up and running on the web 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
Midco2000's Network Operations Center (NOC)
features raised flooring. This enables a constant flow of conditioned
air and helps to maintain uniform room temperature at all times.
In addition, raised flooring reduces static and ensures a professional,
computer-grade environment for your servers.
-The facility is equipped
with a Raytheon fire suppression system, designed to immediately
extinguish fire and protect equipment and personnel.
-The command center is controlled via automatic doors to further secure and
protect the equipment.
Finally, the NOC is located in a secure,
monitored, class A building with a minimum number of approved
personnel allowed access to highly sensitive areas and equipment.

Connected to Three Backbones (Network Redundancy)
The NOC, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is OnNet with
GlobalCenter (GC), Qwest Communications and GTE through three
separate bandwidth-on-demand connections that enter Baltimore in our
building.GC, a Tier 1 provider with a 13,000-mile fiber optic network
and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology that provides
an enormous 460 gigabytes per second (Gbps) of capacity worldwide,
has an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) fiber node located just a few
floors below the NOC.
Qwest comes into Baltimore with an
OC-12 line and plans to upgrade its connection to an OC-48 in the
near future. Qwest also has an ATM fiber node just floors below the
NOC. Our Qwest connection enables Midco2000 to offer
additional redundancy and better routes to Europe, Latin America and
Asia. With our carriers, our router has up to 150,000 possible routes
to send each packet of traffic.AT&T is our third Tier One Internet
backbone. AT&T Managed Internet Service provides a reliable,
dedicated, high-speed Internet connection and industry-leading
Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
Your business IP services will
reside on AT&T's world-class OC-192/OC-48 IP backbone, providing
you with managed, state-of-the-art hardware and software, smart
routing capability, and continuous performance monitoring.
Furthermore, because of these unique connections, Midco2000 does not
need to link to the Internet through an OC3 or T3 Telecom circuit.
Instead, independent cables run inside our building directly from the
NOC to all three carriers' points of presence. These lines
can handle the bandwidth of a T3 or an OC3 with DWDM. Plus, they
handle several times the bandwidth of an OC3. Whatever your bandwidth
needs may be, Midco2000 has the scalability to meet them.
Force Filtered Cooling
All of Midco2000's custom web servers are equipped with a
positive-pressure filtered-air system. Four large fans pull filtered
air into each server's protective case, and the components within are
cooled by fans that circulate this purified air. This constant
introduction of clean air into the case creates a positive pressure
environment ensuring that dust and particles remain outside the server.
