We took everything about networking infrastructure from fiber, network & architecture and completely re-engineered it to serve a world powered by Cloud and digital experience - one that requires 100% uptime, shortest latency and control in the hands of the customer.
Lightstorm Next Gen Network Design
~ 90% of long-haul fiber routes on OPGW/utility infrastructure
Zero flaps because of OPGW/utility infrastructure
Spine-leaf architecture in metro targeting multi-tenant DC
Point-to-point linear long-haul/metro express network architecture
Better latency as no add-drop sites in between source/destination
All long-haul/metro PoP are located within Tier-3/4 DC with high availability design
Single hardware across metro/long-haul network providing ease of operation
Network is software-defined by foundation
Traditional Network Design
~ 90% of long-haul fiber routes are underground fiber
Prone to frequent flaps & fiber cuts
Non-linear ring-based architecture with multiple add-drop locations
Multiple add-drop locations lead to high latency between source/destination
Designed for wireless/B2C market segment using traditional ring-based architecture
PoPs in telco's site leading to reliability/availability issues
Multiple vendors and legacy hardware leading to operational complexity
Legacy network with no programmability
Understanding SmartNet Advantage
Our best-in-class SmartNet network leverages utility-grade infrastructure to avoid outages and zero flaps. Our unique network architecture provides better latency than conventional architecture and guarantees 100% uptime. Time to move to Lightstorm’s SmartNet – because your customers deserve nothing but the best.
