Diversified options for connectivity sets ACI apart from other colocation providers. It is through a series of cross connects and relationships with other peers that ACI is able to provide direct connectivity to a range of carriers. ACI also provides a range of connection types both inbound and outbound of your co-location network.
ACI has the ability to connect to service providers without having to incur long haul bandwidth charges. Tenants create fiber connections to each other without running new conduit and cabling with each customer order (in Meet-Me room). High-capacity fiber optic cabling runs between their suite and the meet-me room. If you currently have server or network infrastructure colocated within other facilities within Canada, ACI is also peered back to many of the major carriers in Canada and the USA which will ensure low network latency for clients who are looking for a disaster recovery facility, or diverse location.
