NTS stands for net neutrality

NTS Workspace AG is participating in the alliance of the Swiss economy for an open Internet.

Net neutrality means that NTS is obliged to handle all Internet services the same way - neither we filter any content nor services are treated preferentially or prioritized.

Only through a neutral and thus equivalent treatment of all services an open Internet is possible, which in turn offers all providers fair opportunities and thus also allows new suppliers to offer innovative products and services.

The aim of the alliance is to define the net neutrality in the telecommunications law.

Georedundant datacenters with high-speed interconnects

Improving colocation bundles in close cooperation with our partners ColoBâle, colozüri.ch and Colobern

Due to increased demand of various companies regarding georedundant setups, distributed among the regions of Zurich, Basel and Bern, the three datacenter operators ColoBâle, colozüri.ch and Colobern have decided to cooperate more closely.

The existing high-speed interconnections between the sites have a positive effect on an attractive solution. So we are ready to offer powerful and cost-effective colocation bundles.

To increase the availability of an IT platform, redundant components are used and operated as a cluster. Failure of a single component will not have serious consequences for the user.
The distribution of redundant IT infrastructure in two different locations (georedundancy) even increases stability in relation to geographic threats. Previously such setups were often reserved to large integrators because appropriate and affordable high-speed interconnects between the various data centers were a major problem.

Whether individual racks, cages or private suites and / or links with bandwidth of 1Gbps to 100Gbps, any combination is possible. We are happy to work out a solution design according to your needs.

Excellence in Datacenter Design at NTS

We congratulate our colleague Reto Burkhalter for passing the exam for Accredited Tier Designer according to Uptime Institute

For many years, data center topologies are categorized by the Uptime Institute in four so called Tier levels (Tier I - Tier IV).This ensures a worldwide consistent evaluation of datacenters according to the topics of redundancy, maintainability and fault tolerance.The aim of the attended course was getting a deeper knowledge in these areas.

Doubling of peering capacity

Even more bandwidth for sports broadcasts via Internet

After SwissIX has renewed their core infrastructure at the four main locations (among others colozüri.ch) and since the site interlinks now run with 100GE, we have also increased our capacity to 20Gbps regarding to the upcoming European football championship 2016 and the Olympics. The connection is realized via a so-called LAG and thereby also component failures are covered such as a defecetive SFP transceiver.

Two new POPs in Zug

Expansion of our redundant network infrastructure to Zug

We have put two new locations (Point of Presence) into operation in order to realize redundant high-speed connections in Zug. On the two fiber optic lines, which are realized as redundant ring topology, also DWDM equipment has been installed. For further information please contact us.
