Fast, reliable and extensive internet connectivity

Our wholly owned IP backbone is connected across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the USA and Asia, using a diversified subsea portfolio that ensures capacity across multiple cable systems. We support stringent latency and jitter service levels between these regions and have invested significantly in our backbone capacity and diversity.

We also connect every country we serve with at least two highly diverse PoPs that we integrate into a fully meshed optical core architecture. Our backbone is engineered for resilience and redundancy at all levels with multiple protection paths and diverse routing options.

In the event of a failure, our IP backbone automatically deploys the most appropriate protection path, restoring traffic across the network even if there are several failures. Each access port typically supports 99.99% availability, and for additional resilience (for back-up or for simultaneous use), it is possible to order two access ports.

Partners can take advantage of our economies of scale

Our IP Transit service delivers significant cost, performance and bandwidth efficiencies with minimal backhaul and network hops for traffic to reach its destination.

Optimised for high speed and low latency internet connectivity, our core network carries over 10Tbit/s of customer traffic at any one time, with a worldwide capacity of 28Tbit/s.

Service providers can typically connect through an access port at a designated “meet-me” location and we can also supply last mile access circuits, subject to location.

Access port bandwidths typically range from 155Mbit/s SDH and 1-100Gbit/s Ethernet speeds, which can be ordered with flexible billing options and global discounts available.

Vodafone’s global IP backbone provides the extensive connectivity required to serve customers, offering tier 1 capabilities in Europe, widespread coverage in the USA, the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and connectivity to major content distribution networks and millions of eyeballs.
