embc Network Connection vs All Others
Your emPSN schools network connection connects your school directly on to the dedicated regional schools MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) network at one of the two main network nodes in Data Centres in Derby and Nottingham. The Network Nodes are connected together with a 10Gb connection and are fully resilient. The connections between the circuit providers, BT, talk-talk and Virgin are resilient with auto failover routing traffic in to the embc network. The data centres each have a pair of industrial standard firewalls (managed by Dell Secure Works, one of the world’s leading firewall management and support companies) through which they connect to the Janet Network. So the embc has a fully resilient 10Gb connection to the Janet network.
