At Fuse 2 we operate our own independent Voice & Data network which has a unique global presence. Our main European PoP is based in Manchester with a secondary site 20km away. This means that if services are interrupted at the primary PoP, the 40GB links to the secondary PoP will kick in and instantly transmit the data. This results in little to no downtime and also guarantees that ongoing calls will not be affected.
For resilience purposes, we operate on a dual dark fiber ring with diverse routes for maximum reliability.
Each part of the network has been designed with reliability and resilience in mind. This includes, enabling multiple tier 1 data transits at each PoP / Data Center with the ability to use DDoS Mitigation platforms. With this, we are able to host multiple IX peering points for key suppliers and networks.
The Voice network has been designed robustly with each part of the SBC and routing architecture using active/active and active /slave units. Should any part of the network, whether that be voice or data, suffer any issue we can reliably operate the network using secondary DCs or systems. This gives our customers total peace of mind that their communications will not be affected.
Over the years the Fuse 2 network has expanded to serve our global customers. We now operate session routing engines and SBC technology in North America, Poland and Singapore utilising the Azure network which is on-net to the UK PoP site. Our customers who use these PoP sites can be assured that audio/media is anchored geographically to these countries, ensuring latency is kept to the absolute minimum.
We are proud members of several regulatory bodies such as RIPE, Ofcom (operating over 800k numbers allocated), CCA (Cloud Comms Alliance) and Comms Council. This ensures we continue to be on top of any regulatory issues or changes and have total control over our network by being an independent ASN and Voice operator.
