The line supplies IP addresses which are independent from the connection service provider and therefore allows the client to change the supplier with no negative impact
Actually, this statement isn’t correct: as optic fibers connect Telecom Italia centres they are available anywhere, except in particular cases such as mountains or other places which are difficult to reach. The problem is a different one. Usually, it isn’t worth taking out fibers and directing them to a single client. That is why operators usually reply in the negative, killing any hope right from the start.
However, the reality is very different, as has been demonstrated by several connections recently activated in towns and villages in Brianza (Merate in 2007, Carate Brianza and Lesmo in 2012) but also in areas logistically less accessible (Tito Scalo, province of Potenza, 2015). All of this is possible thanks to our collaboration with Briantel S.r.l. and with the most important operators such as Telecom Italia Wholesale, Colt Telecom or CDLAN, which Promo.it chooses according to the technical and economic characteristics of each single project.
Promo.it integrates today’s winning element that gives the client independence from the chosen operator through an Autonomous System supplied by RIPE in Amsterdam, an organization that distributes IP addresses in Europe and provides address classes that are supplied directly by Promo.it. A paramount element consists in separating the connection supplier from the IP distributor as it allows the client to change the operator without completely modifying machines’ IP address. In fact, Promo.it will contact the new operator to communicate the IP addresses reported/ provided by the Client and the switch from one operator to another will be smooth for IT department. No more headaches because of your company Data Centre IP addresses!
Because of very close relationship between Promo.it and Briantel S.r.l., telecommunications operator in Merate, we can complete our offer with bridge -IT based on Briantel’s ownership structure. The backup runs at the same speed as the main connection and therefore guarantee the Client a soft landing also in an event of optic fiber problems. Problems that according to statistics are as frequent as 5% approximately in comparison to traditional copper network.
Yamaha Motor Europe activated their own fiber optic connection in 2012 at their headquarters in Gerno di Lesmo (MB). The policies imposed by the mother company meant that it was particularly complicated to change the IP addresses; the problem was solved by activating a dedicated Autonomous System and attributing an entire C class.
Zampediverse require an ultra-fast connection to improve the exchange of extra-large files that are part of the projects which they are constantly elaborating on behalf of major national and international companies. Today, Zampediverse have at their disposal 100 Mbps of guaranteed connection in their headquarters in the centre of Carate Brianza.
Elemaster S.p.a. Tecnologie Elettroniche is a multinational company with its headquarters in Lomagna (Lc). Promo.it provided a fiber-optic connection not only to Lomagna but also to the subsidiary Eleprint S.r.l. in Tito Scalo (PZ), located in an area that had long suffered from limited reliability via copper wire connections.
