The Verio National Network
The National Network links members of the Verio group of Internet Service
Providers to each other and to the key national exchange points---MAE
West, MAE East and NY NAP---as well as to the Digital Internet Exchange,
located in Palo Alto, California.
The network features Cisco 7500 series router technology and OC3 links,
which connect the national exchange points and the network access nodes.
Group members access the Verio backbone by connecting their local networks
to one of the network nodes located in metropolitan areas throughout the
United States. Additional access nodes are being added as more group
members link to the Verio National Network.

development. The NOC provides network monitoring, performance and traffic

furnishes real-time network status to Verio's Customer Care and assists
with problem resolution.
In addition, network monitoring by the NOC
includes real-time alarming, event correlation, traffic forecasting and
notifications of network events. Verio's national engineering group,
strengthened by its regional engineering teams, constantly monitors and
