03-12-2012 - Centauri Communications, recently upgraded our core network cage over at the SF 200 Paul datacenter. This sixteen rack cage is the new home for our network. It has redundant 208v 30 Amp Primary / Secondary power circuits in each rack. This allows our network to easily expand capacity and allows the higher density line cards for 10 GbE IP circuits.

With online digital media growing leaps and bounds more customers are asking to upgrade there networks to 10 GbE. Since technology has been getting a major refresh to reflect the new reality of 2012 it was a logical step for us to be able to deliver the higher speed services. In the not-too-distant future Centauri Communications plans on deploying the Cisco ASR 9010 series routers for high density 10 GbE and 100 GbE interfaces.

Global IP Traffic is expected to reach nearly a zettabyte by 2015. IPv6 will be nearly mandatory as Arin.net will most likely run out of IP allocations by 2014. Our customers will demand that IPv6 have the same performance as IPv4. So other Internet providers will be forced to upgrade there networks to accomodate the new IPv6 protocol.
