Additional Network in New Data Centre

News /

In order to provide extra redundancy and room for expansion, TTNC has installed a new Intelligent Network and associated hardware in the VSNL (TATA) Data Centre in Stratford, London.

Whilst all of TTNC's numbers are still hosted in Telehouse, London, some of the Intelligent Network services such as the Virtual Receptionist service, Call Whisper Service, Call Queuing, etc, are now being processed in the new VSNL facility.

The VSNL facility is a world class data centre and provides the following;

  • Standby Power N+2 redundant configuration with 2.5 MVA Caterpillar diesel generators to back up the primary power source with 48-hours on-site fuel storage
  • Site Connectivity Multiple fibre connections direct into the site on a redundant ring. This provides transit and connectivity direct to any of our other POPs
  • Backup Network Connectivity The VSNL site can provide one of the only UK backup transit routes that does not rely on circuits via Telehouse and/or Docklands
  • Security
