IP Transit Bandwidth Services
CIFNet provides your company with the reliability and performance needed to keep your infrastructure connected. Available capacities include T1, T3, Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet service. Depending on your location or/and preferences, we offer Ethernet services on either MM (multi-mode), SM (single-mode) fiber, or copper. These services are being provided to customers of CoreSite facility located at 427 S. LaSalle St., Chicago, IL 60605. Redundant hand off, be that fiber or copper, into a secondary router or switch is also an option.
Customers with multiple handoffs to CIFNet will be terminated into separate devices. This will provide 100% uptime business continuity, no matter if we are experiencing a hardware failure or performing a scheduled software or hardware upgrade. Of course, standard Force Majeure disclaimers apply. For BGP4 customers we have custom BGP4 communities for smart routing and remotely triggered blackholes.
With 12-month contract, your last month will be free of charge OR you may have an option to cancel the service within the first 30 days. Please contact us for more details.
