Does high bandwidth guarantee you fast response?

fiberToday, everyone can get high bandwidth at a reasonable price.
But business demands of today requires more than bandwidth alone.

Measured bandwidth and perceived bandwidth are two very different things.

High latency is a challenge to many companies. Systems don’t respond as quickly as they should, and the benefit of working in the cloud diminishes.

The easy solution to the problem seems to be to buy more bandwidth.

If the connection has high latency, the connection is perceived as slow no matter how much bandwidth you throw at it.

Xfiber delivers low latency connections by ensuring that our core network has high quality components, intelligent architecture and by being directly connected to the main national and international hubs.

Transport of “Big data” is another challenge companies face today

More and more companies need to move large files such as geological data.

The large data packets don’t fit in the “normal” networks and needs to be split into several small packets to get through. This can lower performance and bandwidth for the customers.

By increasing the allowed size of data packets through the customer’s connection, Xfiber can ensure more efficient and thus faster communication  than with a “normal” connection.

Our know-how and our ability to set up “tailor made” connections for our customers ensures full utilization of our your broadband connection.

Fjord Power!

Green-Mountain-SiteGreen Mountain Data Center (GMDC) near Stavanger, Norway is an ultra-modern , environmentally friendly and safe place to put servers and storage devices.

Deep inside the mountain lies the massive server rooms constantly cooled with naturally chilled seawater from the deep fjord outside.
This provides an energy-efficient cooling , with a smaller ” carbon footprint ” than other comparable systems.

The facility is a former NATO ammunition storage , with extensive safeguards.

Several major companies have already established their server farms here , and more are on their way .

This large server capacity has similar large bandwidth requirements. The customer who sits in Oslo, Harstad , England or Germany would expect the same response as if the server were in-house . With the same high bandwidth and low latency .

Xfiber have redundant high-capacity fiber connections to the facility , which ensures stable and lightning fast connection to the outside world.

The users of the facility retains the same or better functionality as before , while they have a safer , more stable and more environmentally friendly server park .
