FNN was originally established as a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) in Oslo, using powerful nodes in the core network and communication based on utilising dark fibre. From the first production day, this provided a network with a large bandwidth and low latency. In addition, the network had so much capacity that the tuning of the speed of the various connections through the network became unnecessary. Although communication has developed enormously since the start and FNN has converted technologically from Nortel Networks via Juniper Networks to Extreme Networks, FNN is still today based on a large bandwidth, low latency and high level of security.
FNN’s fibre connections are based on the following speeds:
- 20 Gbps between core nodes (2 x 10 Gbps)
- 10 Gbps from core nodes to CPE (1 x 10 Gbps)
The bandwidth can easily be increased if required.
Based on duplicated user connections and core nodes connected by duplicated fibre rings, FNN is a redundant network that has implemented extensive failover functionality. Users with a redundant connection are offered an SLA with a 100% uptime guarantee.
FNN has entered into an agreement with NetNordic Norway AS for the operation, monitoring and maintenance of the network.
