Connectivity

EGI’s network is built with speed and redundancy in mind. Our redundant core routers are connected to multiple 10G uplinks via multiple upstreams providers and peering points. This allows us to better control our outgoing and incoming routes, offering your business lower latency paths and higher throughput for even the most demanding network applications and challenging international routes.

We offer dual stack IPv4/IPv6 configuration on each Network Edge. This means that we provide maximum flexibility by providing both IPv4 and IPv6 network configurations within the same VLAN or interface.

Our core routers are connected to more than 4 different upstream providers and more than 80+ peering partners for redundancy and optimal routing option.
At 120Gbps+ network capacity, you can rest assure that speed will never be an issue.
As today’s internet traffic security concerns grow, EGI’s is proud to be offering basic incoming DDoS mitigation with every colocation or dedicated server plan sold.
A more advanced DDoS mitigation is also available for a monthly fee.

What is IPv4?

IPv4 is the first and most widely utilized Internet Protocol in use today, accounting for most of today’s Internet traffic. But even with over four billion IP addresses, the explosive growth of the internet is causing, IPv4 resources to be depleted globally and networks are starting to migrate over to IPv6.

What is IPv6?

In order to address this lack of available IPv4 addresses, the IPv6 protocol was deployed in 1999 and includes a much larger address pool than the now outdated IPv4. The transition to IPv6 will continue to grow and is likely to eventually replace IPv4 usage. Address pool of IPv6 should be sufficient for the next few decades.

What is the major difference?

While the technical functioning of the Internet remains the same with both versions, the number of available IP addresses available for IPv4 is only 4.3 billion while the number of IP addresses available for IPv6 is over 340 undecillion. Though the difference in address space is staggering, it is projected that IPv4 will not be going away in the next decade, and most of today’s networks support both IPv4 and IPv6.

Our networking solutions can enable your business with dual stack configuration for IPv4/IPv6 and the new forward leaning /48 and /64 configurations for IPv6 exclusive networks.
