The platform swissV is connected through the fully redundant backbone of the netrics hosting AG and has a maximum connection capacity (> 10 Gbits). Today’s backbone configuration looks as follows:

netrics maintains two separate fiber optic cables of 10Gbits each to the TIX1 and TIX2 (Telehouse Internet Exchange, Zurich). In the TIX 1 + 2 there are direct peerings to the upstream providers (Swisscom IP-Plus, Sunrise, Global Crossing and Level 3). There are also direct-peerings to Frankfurt and Amsterdam. Additionally netrics maintains direct-peerings to all major ISPs in Switzerland.
