The Micron21 network is multihomed to relieve congestion, enhance throughput and ensure redundancy. Further measures safeguard the integrity and reliability of our network hardware.

Our network has been independently stress tested and purpose designed to allow enormous amounts of capacity for customers who require premium network services and core connectivity. We provide industry-leading redundancy, low latency, security and network capacity across the world.

AS38880 is supported with multiple redundant routers positioned throughout the world, in places of high interconnectivity to provide maximum reach to global peers. We use a combination of both Brocade MLXe X2 and Extreme SLX 9640 routers supporting millions of global IPv4 and IPv6 BGP routes along with Juniper SRX hardware firewalls, and A10 and NSFOCUS security appliances configured in 2N (full redundancy) across the entire network.

Within Australian our domestic network utilises a Cisco EVPN BGP Multi Site platform delivering native VXLAN and Any Cast gateway features to every customer connected to our network. Our datacentre core network utilizes a pair of fully redundant Cisco Nexus 9500 Series Spine Switches to create a spine-leaf fabric datacentre architecture. Our Cisco 9500 platform supports up to 400G Ethernet connections per physical port connected to our leaf fabric. Our leaf fabric consists of a pair of Cisco Nexus 93180YC top of rack switches within each rack connected via 6 x 100G redundant paths to each spine, providing a total capacity of 1.2 Terrabits.

Each rack is supplied with four independent 32 amp power feeds from four independent UPS systems and fitted with dedicated Vertiv Extreme Density independent top-of-rack cooling units.
