About Arab Hosting Network

Arab Hosting Network Data Center-01 (CDC-01) Specifications
CDC-01 sits on top of a OC-48 SONET ring. This SONET provides our Data Center with Tier 1 connectivity to numerous network carriers. It provides our clients with the fastest, most reliable Internet connectivity, unmatched by any other hosting provider in the industry.

We currently have 335 Mbits of bandwidth allotted to CDC-01 and we are currently utilizing 35% of that bandwidth during peak times and 15% at off-peak times. CDC-01 bandwidth is expandable up to an OC-192. Additional bandwidth will be allocated as needed. By purchasing bandwidth from multiple backbone providers, over 97% of the Internet is viewed as a private network from CDC-01. This network architecture provides Arab Hosting Network's customers with unparalleled network performance and network availability.
