Lightstorm’s SmartNet is built with the ideals of providing open, transparent and neutral access to the cloud and the internet to support the next wave of digital disruptions. Some of the world’s largest companies are using SmartNet’s digital infrastructure to gain a business edge.

Gain a competitive edge with SmartNet

We re-engineered legacy networking infrastructure to build a network for new-age digital
experience — one that requires 100% uptime, shortest latency, complete transparency and control in your hands.

Legacy Network Design

~ 90% of long-haul fiber routes are underground fiber prone to frequent flaps & fiber cuts
Non-linear ring-based architecture with multiple add-drop locations leading to high latency
Designed for wireless/B2C market segment and not for extreme availability and reliability required by enterprise users
PoPs in telco’s site leading to reliability/availability issues
Multiple vendors and legacy hardware leading to operational complexity
Legacy network with limited or no programmability

Lightstorm NextGen Network Design

~ 90% of long-haul fiber routes on OPGW/utility infrastructure for zero flaps and greater resilience
Spine-leaf architecture in metro layer and point-to-point linear long-haul/metro express network architecture ensure improved latency as no add-drop sites between source and destination
All long-haul/metro PoP are located within Tier-3/4 DC with high availability design
Single hardware across metro/long-haul network providing greater operational efficiency
Network is software-defined by foundation for greater agility, scalability and flexibility
