The newly designed approach for the O2 Wi-Fi network makes it possible for services to be delivered point to multipoint using VPLS configuration. This easily enables re-routing of all Ethernet traffic in the event of a datacentre or hardware fault. The VPLS overlay adds a heightened level of functionality not easily achieved when using multiple partners in the supply chain.
This network was successfully rolled out to support specific major O2 Wi-Fi end customers requiring a high level of resiliency. It was also delivered to 99% of all FluidOne-supported O2 Wi-Fi customers, whether as a single site or large single-end user estate.
As the network developed, FluidOne provided key data centres all around the UK to support the O2 network. This included 31 ranks across Manchester and London.
These locations, following collaborative analysis, provided a geography for a resilient network able to deliver our full suite of connectivity services. The result was a stable platform for the O2 Wi-Fi network.
