Switch Communication Group currently operates 6 NAP-IX data centers. All data centers are connected diversely and redundantly by Switch owned fiber. Every data center has multiple pathways to the other data centers to take advantage of a broad blend of five Internet transit providers. This design succeeds in being dynamic, robust, and diverse. Customers who colocate in one of the NevadaNAPs are provided a number of different options for Internet connectivity. These range from single drops, to multiple redundant drops. Redundancy to the customer is provided either by BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) or HSRP (Hot Standby Routing Protocol).
