Re: New transit from TATA?

said by 34764170:

Gabe, out of curiosity what was the reason for TSI picking up transit with TATA (also why them with the multitude of other providers in the market)? Was this for additional capacity or diversified routes or both?

Cogent, XO, SAVVIS, Deutsche Telekom, Zayo (AboveNet), Telecom Italia (Seabone) all heavily favor TATA for inbound routes.

What is TATA and what they do here with TS exactly?

TSI like other ISPs needs to buy bandwidth/connectivity to the rest of the internet from usually Tier 1 providers.

You can think of TSI as being a grocery store, the store doesn't actually produce all the food, the buy it from suppliers and resell it. Furthermore a grocery store won't just offer a single brand, they'll offer multiples (Coke, Pepsi, etc) of the same product.

Having multiple providers means TSI's routers can choose which provider to use for getting to a certain site (usually picking the best one), it also allows for it to not be affected as much if one of their providers go down.
