    Sohonet is a global private IP network, primarily implemented as IP over Ethernet. Globally unique IPv4 address space is acquired by Sohonet for customers directly from ARIN, APNIC and RIPE. This ensures our customers can interact with destinations on the Internet as well as other locations on the network and avoids potential problems with address-space overlap with their internal networks.

    24/7 SUPPORT

    The topology of the network is a number of Metro Area Networks, all interconnected with private circuits. The Sohonet IP network provides a high performance, secure platform upon which Production services can be built.

    The Sohonet Media Network is built on open IP and Ethernet network protocols, and eliminates the need for specific software or tools. This allows our services to be extremely flexible, enabling clients to select the best technology to satisfy their requirements.

    None of our customer’s data is stored within the Sohonet Media Network – data is passed straight through from source to destination. This provides you with complete visibility and control of the location and security of your data at all times.
