The only way to provide the level of scalability and control that SoftLayer delivers is by building a different kind of network. So we innovated a network of networks, including a public network, a private network, and an internal management network. Each system in our data centers has three separate network interfaces to each network, segregating and securing traffic, and providing
greater access and streamlined management. Our network boasts more than 2,000 Gbps of connectivity between our data centers and 17 network points of presence (PoPs), with multiple 10Gbps connections per location from leading network carriers and public peering links to additional Internet access networks.
