nLayer USA

nLayer® Communications, Inc. is a leading provider of wholesale IP Transit, Data Transport, and Managed Networking Services in major markets throughout North America and Europe. Founded in 2002 by an experienced team of Internet professionals, the nLayer Network was designed from the ground up to better address the needs of modern companies for higher capacity, better performance, and lower costs from their Internet services.

About nLayer®

The nLayer Global IP Network Infrastructure is designed and operated by engineers with extensive experience running some of the world's largest Global IP backbones. This level of expertise has uniquely positioned us to deliver unmatched value to our customers, through legacy-free, low-cost solutions for clients with even the largest bandwidth requirements. By utilizing the latest state-of-the-art technology and techniques in innovative and efficient ways, nLayer sets the new standard for affordable, high quality Internet services.

Building the future of IP Telecommunications
Today, nLayer Communications owns and operates its own continuously upgraded all-optical IP/MPLS network, and maintains over 900 Gigabits per second of edge capacity to other Internet networks. nLayer has established itself as a major independent carrier in the North American and European IP arenas, providing service to many leading service providers, content distributors, and access networks.

Connected to the world
nLayer operates core routing POPs capable of delivering multiple 10 Gigabit per second circuits in twenty-four (24) major metro markets, spanning North America, Europe, and Asia. By strategically positioning core routing infrastructure near key Internet interconnections points, nLayer is able to provide lower latency service and increased bandwidth scalability, at reduced cost.

nLayer also maintains over 2 Terabits per second of interconnection capacity with other Internet networks, and delivers almost all of its IP traffic via an extensive set of peering relationships with hundreds of critical carrier and service provider networks worldwide.

Engineered for performance
One of the most important aspects in the design of a world-class network is to prevent bottlenecks which limit performance, both within our own network, and between our network and other networks on the Internet.

Some companies are willing to wait for capacity to run out before spending the money to upgrade their network, resulting in periods of congestion for weeks or even months at a time. nLayer proactively monitors traffic growth to ensure sufficient capacity is already provisioned before it is needed. This gives us unmatched capacity for handling traffic bursts, flash crowds, and special events such as stream media.

While other networks talk about adding Quality of Service (QoS) queuing mechanisms to control their congestion, nLayer provides a different form of QoS -- Quantity of Service -- so that there is never any congestion which needs managing.
