Our network consists of routers and interconnections in two main sites in the Zurich metro: eShelter (NTT) in Ruemlang (next to the airport), and Interxion ZUR1 in Glattbrugg. These two locations are connected with dark fiber, and we have access to several local loop providers in both locations. For example, we can arrange connectivity to Colozueri, Equinix ZH4 and Equinix ZH5 directly, and using our partners (such as IP-Max, Init7, Openfactory), domestically and to most european cities.

We operate AS8298 which announces
for ourselves and our transit customers. We’re pretty firmly connected in and
around Zurich, with a 10Gbit link to SwissIX, CommunityIX and CH-IX. We have
a diverse set of transit providers which give us good reach to the world,
including via Cogent AS174, Hurricane Electric AS6939, and for strong european
presence, we receive transit from OpenFactory AS58299, Meerfarbig AS34549, and
Gaining access to this wealth of IPv4 and IPv6 coverage is as easy as finding an L2 connection to one of our points of presence, establishing a BGP session to us, and announcing your netblock(s). We’ll take it from there!

Local Loop Ethernet
Apropos, getting onto the internet is pretty easy if you are in a commercial colocation facility. Of course, any internet provider will offer various quality IPv4 and IPv6 connections with or without a static IP address. However getting from your house to the datacenter is often the most complicated and expensive project. At IPng, we had this challenge too – and considering we solved it for ourselves, we can certainly also solve it for you! With our residential last-mile ISP collaboration (for example, ConnectionPoint, Init7, Solnet, and Swisscom BBCS), L2 services directly to your residence or office become easily possible.
We operate a private colocation facility in Zurich Albisrieden. The facility has 3x200A of power and about 60m2 of floor space. Hosting one or several machines, including Layer2 connectivity either to your own home, or to the main internet hubs of Zurich, are easily accomplished in our colocation facility. If more space is needed, we are regulars in most all Swiss carrier housing facilities, and can help broker a deal that is tailored to your needs.

Project Design / Execution
We design things, both logical and physical. Be it two dimensional or three dimensional, as life long tinkerers, we have a fair bit of experience in mechanical and electrical engineering. Of course, as a network business, designing and deploying autonomous systems and networks of any size is our home turf. Also fundamentally understanding how a network should perform, be it throughput, bandwidth, latency or jitter and packet loss: we’ve seen it all, from ADSL lines to 300km DWDM spans.
For some good examples, take a look at these case studies:
