CONVERGE DEPLOYS THIRD CORE NODE

Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. (PSE: CNVRG), the country’s biggest pure end-to-end fiber internet service provider, is making its fiber network fully redundant with the deployment of its third Core node to further improve its customers’ internet experience.

“We’ve always said that we are all about our customers’ online experience. This is one of the best examples of how we intend to back it up. Our main advantage is the quality of our high-speed fiber connectivity,” said Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange.


He noted that a third core backbone node will enable a robust and redundant traffic routing in the network, making it more fault tolerant.


Previously, the main network backbone of Converge are connected to two core nodes located in Metro Manila and Pampanga.


With the completion of a third Core network backbone node last December, the Converge end-to-end pure fiber network becomes stronger and more resilient with a more efficient network traffic distribution and better ability to address outages.


"Our expansion efforts are running at an unprecedented pace. And we know that network capabilities need to be more so we can serve everyone as best as we could,” Mr. Uy pointed out.


Aside from the third Core backbone node, Converge has implemented several network and connectivity enhancement initiatives. It has recently deployed 34 broadband remote access server systems (BRAS) throughout Luzon.


These systems help enhance customer internet experience as it increases reliability and decreases latency. Having installed in a geographically distributed architecture enables avoiding a single point of failure.
