Cross Connections / Carrier Hotels

If you have connectivity requirements enhanced beyond High Performance Internet Access, then AiNET can facilitate your needs for the carrier(s) of your choice.

To the extent that your needs involve carriers with presence in your AiNET facility, then you can reach them using short cross connections. If you have to reach other carriers, then AiNET can provide simple, inter-building cross connections via our highly-robust, DWDM regional network. Over 100 Carriers just a virtual cross connect away include:

This network is designed to full BellCore/Telcordia physical separation standards of all redundant network elements and offers practically limitless connectivity to hundreds of carriers in carrier hotels and premier data centers in Washington, Baltimore and Northern Virginia.

While cross connections are generally Ethernet-based, other options ranging from low speed serial connections to optical wavelengths are supported.
