Update: Fiber cable (colt) mounted

I already wrote about our new 10 Gbit/s fiber connection via Colt to Telia Sonera which is going to be available at the 1st of July in our datacenter. Today some technicians instructed by Colt appeared and - after having passed our safety steps before entering the datacenter area - mounted the Colt fiber cable through the building into the Core Rack of our datacenter, next to our Cisco Routing equipment.  I have made a photo of the new fiber patchpanel to illustrate this:

Now the physical connection has been completed and the red (or is it orange?) cable is waiting to be connected to our router. There are only a few steps left until this will be completed, too.  Afterwards, Giga-Hosting and Giga-International will be completely "multi-homed" by different fiber cables led from different directions into the building. This is a great benefit for our customers and although we never had network problems since we moved into our new datacenter one year ago our network will be even more secure and even more stable afterwards.
