Internet Exchange Point

Network

All eight LONAP data centres are connected by a fast switch fabric using a high capacity fibre wavelength network. Our dedicated technicians manage the facilities directly, ensuring maximum control, operational flexibility and full accountability are maintained at all times.

Each LONAP Point-of-Presence (PoP) houses a core network of Arista switches, providing 10Gbps and 100Gbps member facing ports.

We operate multiple VLANs including IPv4&6 Unicast and IPv4 Multicast. LONAP members can also use private VLANs according their individual requirements.

The capacity, quality and integrity of the LONAP infrastructure enables members to minimise the volume of traffic they send through upstream providers, reducing their transit bandwidth usage and consequently keeping their costs low. We also support member operators in growing their portfolio and reselling LONAP connectivity to networks outside of London.

We hold contingency stock of mission critical network equipment on-site. This helps to ensure that our infrastructure is robust and reliable, and that we can resolve problems quickly by eliminating any delay whilst waiting for vendor stock to reach our data centres.

Traffic

The LONAP network switches over 250 Gbps of traffic at peak times. Live exchange traffic statistics are updated and reported at 5 minute intervals. You can view those statistics below.
