One of Viking’s strengths is that it has a proprietary infrastructure that it can control directly, without sharing with other providers, managed solely by internal staff. An exclusive data highway, where those who do not want the traffic nor the incidents typical of a shared access network can travel in total tranquillity.
DOUBLE MESH RING NETWORK IN OPTICAL FIBRE.
Viking’s infrastructure covers the whole of Italy, including the islands and consists of a non-shared double ring mesh backbone network in optical fibre. Furthermore, it uses different PoPs to those of the major Italian telecommunications providers, with which it is connected through various core PoPs throughout Italy.
THIRD RING WITH RADIO MESH NETWORK.
Viking has a further mesh network, the only one of its kind in Italy, made up of a proprietary microwave radio backbone network, used in the event of disaster recovery. Each Viking PoP is connected by radio to at least two other nearby PoPs (e.g. Milan with Turin and Brescia), thus ensuring that provision is stable in the event of a so-called “double fibre cut”.
LAST MILE ON DEDICATED RADIO LINK.
All the last mile stretches are on dedicated point-to-point radio links, compliant with the MEF CE 2.0 specifications, with split TX/RX frequency. They use FDX technology, with guaranteed symmetric bandwidth and 100% MCR, providing minimum business continuity values of 99.95% one way, with maximum protection and minimum guaranteed bandwidth MCR 100%.
NON-SHARED PROPRIETARY INFRASTRUCTURE.
The Viking carrier-grade solutions never involve multipoint infrastructures, which use unprotected collective frequencies working in HDX aggregate bandwidth (Multipoint HyperLan, Wi-Fi etc.). Hence, we provide an exclusive and secure connection guarantee.
MAXIMUM INSTALLATION RELIABILITY.
All Viking installations go through a specific design process for each situation, in order to guarantee the maximum structural reliability of the installations at all times, even in critical conditions. Specifically, all structural elements used in the installations have resistance parameters calculated at 300% of the standard values.
AND DIRECT ACCCESS TO THE NOC.
Viking has the capacity to guarantee proactive monitoring 24/7. This means that we successfully anticipate support measures when a report of a potential risk of a drop in functionality arises, on any circuit and at any time.
We have therefore placed at the disposal of our clients a specialised technical staff, the Network Operations Centre (NOC), without going through external call centres.
INTERNAL STAFF ONLY.
The strategic decision to provide comprehensive technical support requires a network of professional engineers with a very high profile. Viking has therefore decided to assign internal staff only to the management of all the phases of interaction with our clients. Everything from inspection and feasibility study to installation, testing, maintenance and support is managed by Viking, without any intervention from third parties or outsourcing.
Viking provides telecommunications services,
