NETPLEX History and Background
was founded in early January 1995 and is a privately-owned, Limited
Liability Company located in Hartford, CT, USA. Our mission is
to provide cutting-edge Internet access for personal, business,
educational and community use.
In our efforts over the years to become
Connecticut's largest independent
ISP, we have identified several points that we think distinguishes
us from other ISP's in the area:
- We provide the latest state-of-the-art Internet
technology to businesses, individuals, public institutions,
and non-profit organizations.
- We offer the highest quality Internet access
- We concentrate on offering technical muscle and
know-how, while avoiding marketing hype that does little for
- We are honest and open with our customers, and
we offer an unsurpassed support infrastructure which enables
us to resolve problems in a timely manner.
became Connecticut's largest
independent ISP because we are in the
unique position of having a strong infrastructure and the technical
ability to offer competitive services that some our competition
have what it takes to make the Internet work for you.
About our Connectivity
NETPLEX provides nothing less than state-of-the-art
Internet connectivity to our customers. We rely upon industry
standard vendors for our technical hardware, including Cisco
Systems routers, 3Com,
and Intel Corporation.
NETPLEX currently sports OC3, DS3, and multiple
T1 connections to five Tier 1 (backbone) Internet Service Providers:
Cable & Wireless, Genuity, Sprint,
and SBC. We also have peering arrangements with many local ISPs.
Our network was the first in the state to incorporate the public
ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) network to connect customers.
Our servers are a heterogeneous mixture of SPARC
hardware running Solaris
and Intel hardware running Linux. We recognized long ago that
it is crucial to ensure that our systems are available at all
times, and are capable of scaling to meet the enterprising demands
of our ever growing customer base.
The majority of server applications and software
that we use are open
source, which are based on true open non-proprietary Internet
standards. This means that we're not locked into any one software
vendor's proprietary format(s), and can provide a much broader
range of services.
Combine all of these things together, and you have
an ISP that knows the business. By using the best technology from
the hardware and software realms, we provide custom solutions
that fit customer needs to the letter. Why not let us find a solution
that's right for you?
