Turning up a new Cisco Nexus 9010 ASR router
Kanobe, Inc. is very proud to welcome a new fiber optic carrier Internet service provider to our premium blend here at our Bothell Data Center.
Our data center technical team has worked with Wolfe Internet to install a brand new Cisco Nexus 9010 ASR into our meet me room.
Over the last few weeks Kanobe has worked with Black Rock cable coordinating dark fiber installs that run north bound out of our facility to 2 new locations. Also with CenturyLink Business on new fiber installs of ring running southbound.
This new equipment and additional fiber routes has greatly increased the levels of redundancy that Kanobe can guarantee in uptime to our colocated clientele.
The addition of Wolfe Internet gives us far greater capacity to provide private line fiber connectivity to the surrounding metro areas.
As well as better prices on high bandwidth co-location needs.
We are now peering BGP with ASN 4258 on top of our other peering arrangements.

Ethernet over Copper (EoC) is perhaps the most exciting new business bandwidth service available from Kanobe. Any company currently using T1 lines, DS3 bandwidth or other connection services needs to compare what they have with Ethernet over Copper options. Why? Because the cost and bandwidth benefits are far too great to ignore.
Let’s take a look at what’s behind EoC and how it compares with competing telecom services. First, let’s define Ethernet over Copper. You’re certainly familiar with Ethernet, the near universal standard protocol of local area networks. This is also Ethernet, but extended for metropolitan and wide area network transmission.
What’s special about Ethernet as a connection service? Other services, like the venerable T1 line, are products of telephone technology. They use transmission standards and technologies that aren’t directly compatible with computer networks. They can be interfaced, of course, with the appropriate protocol and signal conversions. This is why you can’t just plug a T1 line into any LAN switch or router. You need an interface card to make the two networks, LAN and telecom, compatible.
Ethernet over Copper is already in the right protocol. Your connection to the outside world is a common RJ-45 jack. It’s like extending your network over miles or even hundreds to thousands of miles. In practice, the service provider will often install a managed router as Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to connect their network to yours. This way, they can monitor the MAN or WAN network automatically to ensure that everything is working the way it should and take corrective action if problems arise.

You have been charged with the task of saving money for your company. One of the areas you’re looking to cut costs but not service is in the company’s phone bill.Several people you know have advised you that SIP Trunking is the thing to do. But what is SIP Trunking, and what will it do for your company?
First, a basic understanding of the traditional phone system is essential. The private phone system currently installed in your business is called a PBX. The PBX is directly connected to the public telephone system (known as the PSTN). When you initiate a call, your call travels through the phone lines used by the PSTN.
Using a SIP Trunking service changes this process. A SIP Trunking service provider (Like Kanobe) allows a organizations to now get PSTN connectivity through the Internet. Instead of the traditional copper wires running from a central office to a business, a SIP trunk now connects to the PSTN through the Internet. Now when a call is made, a SIP softswitch will route the call to its destination. However, the call will not go through the telephone lines that make up the PSTN. Instead, it will travel through the Internet.
SIP Trunking combines connections for data and voice into a single entity. A company’s data network now carries voice traffic. Features that typically come with this service include local and long distance service, 911 services, directory listing, and caller ID. All of these features will work your company’s existing PBX system.
SIP Features and Benefits
OK, you say. I get how it works, but so what? What will it do for me in terms of cutting costs without sacrificing features? These are fair questions. Some of the benefits companies enjoy by going with a SIP Trunking service are:
- Eliminates the need to purchase equipment that does the work of the SIP Trunking service.
- Doing away with costly PRI (primary rate interface) connections, again reducing costs.
- A reduction in monthly telecommunications expenses, as only one connection is required for voice and data.
- Outsourcing PSTN connectivity to a third party, eliminating long distance charges.
- The use of a hosted VoIP service while still maintaining the investment in their PBX.
- Establishing local numbers in cities across the country instead of using an 800 number.
SIP Trunking allows your company to leverage your existing investment in the phone system that it has and join that system with the Internet. The result is that the company enjoys VoIP services and enjoys a state of the art communications process while immediately seeing a drop in expenses from the costs associated with the traditional phone provider and service. With a modest outlay, a company can see a beneficial return on investment in a few short months. If you’re looking to cut costs in your company’s phone bill while making the phone system itself more efficient, a SIP trunk is the way to go and Kanobe can help you get there!

Preview shot from tech booth of Hologram Multi-site for ECC
Kanobe, Inc and Bothell Data Services have been working over the past few months with Eastlake Community Church to expand.
Eastlake has taken on a grand endeavor to expand their overcrowded services to 3 new locations throughout Washington.
They settled on a technology solution that records the Pastor at the Kane Hall location and beams a holographic image in real time to the Bothell Campus.
Putting this technology all together has been a massive task and the Kanobe/BDS team has been happy to help out.
Eastlake has had a discernible advantage having their primary Bothell location in the same building as a massive data center.
This gave availability to existing bandwidth connectivity on campus that is essential in ensuring high definition real time streaming works well.
Co-locating the enterprise server in a truly redundant, highly secure and highly available environment was essential. Having that available on campus made this entire roll out so much easier.
The Kane Hall location came with 100Mbps fiber connectivity over the Pacific NW Gigapop network that peers directly with Kanobe at The Seattle Internet Exchange ensures low latency back to campus is smooth.
The Skyline HS Sammamish location took a bit of work. Kanobe was able to leverage their extensive connections in the Telecommunications sector to locate and install 100Mbps fiber connectivity to the campus.
We wish to thank all those involved, for helping to put this truly amazing technology together.
Avail Company put together the Audio Visual compenents, Streambox provides streaming technology, Eastlake Tech Booth team has been awesome to work with.
