Global IP Transit
The Internet today is far different than the Internet of a mere five years ago. Instead of simple Web pages serving up text and graphics, the
Internet has become a popular domain for voice and video communications, as well as real time applications for corporations.
At the same time, new domains, networks, end-users, and even whole regions like China, India and South America are getting online and getting
connected. Content is no longer restricted to a few well-connected, centralised domains and network in the US, but spread far and wide across
continents, cultures and languages.
In this new, more complex and far-reaching Internet, Pacnet have rolled out a global backbone that is robust in both capacity and diversity.
We have built much of our Internet backbone directly over our regional subsea cable system, and paired it with one of the most extensive peering
portfolios in the Asia Pacific as well as with global backbone and upstream operators.
As a result, Pacnet Global IP Transit service now offers one-hop access to all major destinations in cyberspace on a platform that is both scalable in bandwidth
and rich in service features such as Tiered and Burstable bandwidth subscription and Web-based performance monitoring.
Standard IP Transit service option
- Full Pipe - Fixed bandwidth port that will enable you to manage fixed costs for your business
- Tiered Pipe - Fixed bandwidth port provisioned at a lower bandwidth to enable additional capacity to be turned up in a shorter provisioning interval.
This option allows for enhanced cost control while maintaining rapid scalability
Premium IP Transit service option
- Full and Tiered Pipe, plus Burstable - Enables you to select a tiered bandwidth level for a fixed fee and pay for any additional usage on a per Mbps basis
based on 95/5 percentile calculation. This option supports dynamic bandwidth requirements with maximum burstable bandwidth that is 2x the committed bandwidth
or port speed whichever is lower
- Country Specific Routes include Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and Westbound Europe (SMW3/4) IP Transit routes
- A secondary DNS (Domain Name System) can be provided as an element of the IP Transit Service. This facility acts as the customer's DNS, and matches
computer IP address number to Internet ID's
- This service option allows for distribution of Netnews information from a number of Internet Netnews servers to the customer's own news server
- The customer's Autonomous System (i.e. IP network) will be connected via the optional BGP-4 (Border Gateway Protocol Version 4) routing
- If needed, we can supply the customer with a limited number of IP addresses, subject to conditions.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack Mitigation
- Free of charge to all Pacnet on-net IP Transit and Internet Services customers
- Allow customers to block their assigned IP
- Clean Pipe
- Basic and Advance Plans available
- Fixed monthly rate per Mbps
- Automatic or Manual traffic filtering
- With email notification, management portal for report viewing and setting filtering policy
- SLA on Service Availability
Connection Protocols and Routing
The IP Transit Service uses the protocols as specified in IETF RFCs 791, 950, 919 and 922. Routing information is exchanged by use of BGP version 4 according to IETF RFC 1771.
Packet-over-SDH/SONET uses the technology described in RFC 1619.
Australia, Europe¹, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and United Sattes¹
