The KCNAP is the oldest Internet exchange in Kansas City and one of the most densely populated peering fabrics in Kansas City. Similar to KCIX, KCNAP provides unilateral peering, but also multilateral peering and IP transit services. We're happy to announce today that we have contributed hardware and are now providing services, and peering with KCNAP at 10Gb. Route redistribution agreements adds many additional paths to the WANSecurity and KCNAP networks over other Tier1 and Tier2 carriers.
Another remote backup company? Yes! Providing quite different services however. SpiderOak uses a considerable amount of bandwidth with their remote backup services. By combining the providers and transit capacity of SpiderOak and WANSecurity, we will be increasing the number of routes, and lowering hop counts, creating a better overall quality of service for everyone.
We're celebrating 2 years no outages! 100% network availability! While this is a time to rejoice at the fruits of our hard work, there was of course the exception of our Kawasaki POP on 3/11 when the 8.9 earthquake hit off the coast in the Tohoku area Japan. Perhaps just take a moment to meditate and remember that day, considering how a horrific event can drastically flip the world or the lives as we know it up-side-down in an instant. We appreciate the present measure of peace, and our freedom to go to work, and go home, to have and hold those whom we love. We'll keep looking forward to a world and society free of man-made, and natural disaster, and pray for those who've lost their lives and loved ones.
We're now present in the Bryant building, Kansas City's defacto Internet Carrier hub at 1102 Grand in Kansas City. We are currently collocating with Unite Private Networks. We're operating dark fiber from 1102 Grand to 324 E. 11th, the former AT&T building. We are now offering Layer1 WDM at 1G and 10G, as well as Layer2 lit services, and Layer3 IP transit to both carriers and consumers.
We are now IPv6 capable at all locations with the exception of Equinix in Tokyo. The equipment and software is capable, but the SPIC (IP transit) service from Equinix is not yet IPv6 capable.
We are now in the process of unifying all of the products and services of WANSecurity, Inc. and it's subsidiaries into a singular delicately balanced and beautifully orchestrated service offering. This will streamline the process of providing products and services to our customers. No change of ownership, change in technologies, processes, or procedures. Just an even more simplified service offering where the combinations are limitless.
The facility is now operational currently with transit providers NTT and UCOM. Please note that we are not running BGP on either of these circuits, but rather over a Layer2 circuit from Equinix to Shibuya using the UCOM fiber mesh. 3ms round trip from Heiwajima to Shibuya!
We've just signed on the space in Shibuya for our newest data center POP. Slated to open in Mid August this POP will be a more economical solution than our Equinix Japan offering, but will still allow the customer to utilize the WANSEC managed services systems, and remote management systems. This POP is being specifically designed for high bandwidth applications, game server, CDN, video streaming and the likes.
NexTrap is a next generation SNMP TRAP and INFORM message receiver which translates machine messages into text that means something to us earthlings. Support for simple or complex regular expressions. Full support for Cisco, Cisco UCS, Brocade, Foundry and HP. A web based interface allows you to categorize messages by priority or severity. A finite state machine allows for alerting via your Nexus Director notification schema without the alarm fatigue traditionally associated with SNMP TRAPs and INFORMs. This module will eventually be integrated with the SEC module for complete correlation and event transaction broker capabilities.
Due to popular demand the Kawasaki data center has been re-opened and has now resumed full operational status. At least one customer made a very significant contribution to making operational restoration a reality.
Due to the rolling black-outs, we will be shutting down the Kawasaki data center until further notice.
All critical services have been migrated from Kawasaki to the Tokyo data center and are now online and operational at Equinix TY1.
We stand in awe at the destructive power of the elements and their ability to change the lives of millions in an instant. Our heart goes out to those who've suffered the effects of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. At this time our Kawasaki Datacenter POP is offline due to the earthquake. Engineers are on the ground now preparing to move the critical services from Kawasaki to Tokyo Equinix.
Today we make available to the public the much anticipated WANSEC cloud platform in Tokyo! This is an idea location for DR site replication. With excellent peering, high security, and IPSec VPN upon request, our cloud solution makes the perfect environment for production web services, virtual office, and virtual desktops with VDI.

This managed solution covers the full array of services from Layer 1 through Layer 7 and includes confidentiality, availability and integrity guarantees to keep your data, safe, secure and available. Speak to your account rep about the Managed Rack enCloud service from WANSEC.
Adding UCOM / USEN to our service offering opens high speed, low latency, low jitter routes to Japan's domestic Internet. UCOM was originally one of the first carriers to lay an extensive fiber network across Japan, and is now the ISP of choice for home and business users requiring a better level of service quality over NTT, and other local providers such as Interlink.
Today we make available to the public the much anticipated WANSEC cloud platform, with 96TB of Linux LiO backend storage, and XenServer hypervisor clusters. With excellent peering, high security, and IPSec VPN upon request, our cloud solution makes the perfect environment for production web services, virtual office, and virtual desktops with VDI.

United Layer, a super peering IP transit provider directly connected to and carrying almost 85% of all Internet routes is now part of the WANSecurity IP blend at 200 Paul in San Francisco. The United Layer and NTT combination give us a unique path set with awesome routes to the rest of the globe.
The details of the discovery have been given to the Areca development team. Despite this issue they are still by far our number one choice for RAID code and HBA reliability.
Due to a number of unfortunate circumstances our LA POP has lost its record up-time due to a significant drop in power availability on the city grid. Additionally multiple battery failures in our providers UPS systems, did not allow enough to get on generator support. We want our customers to understand that we do not consider this to be acceptable even in a rare circumstance. For this reason we've contracted with KDDI to provide both datacenter colocation services, as well as IP transit with expressed access to the Japan gateway over KDDI.
We are pleased to announce our newest datacenter location at Equinix TY1 in Heiwajima. We have selected Equinix as our IP transit provider in addition to UCOM. We are also participating at EQIX and have an open peering policy. As in the past asynchronous bandwidth usage patterns are most often not an issue. Please send an email to peering _@_ wansec _dot_com along with your request to peer at EQIX.
We've decided to go with DID Logic for our China and Hong Kong inbound support line DIDs. These numbers will be the primary support numbers for support and sales related inquiries coming from China and Hong Kong. To date the testing and implementation has been quite smooth.
Besides the frequent maintenance, the quality of the IP transit, low latency, low jitter, hop count and overall packet loss rates have been ranking higher than any of the other providers we've been monitoring. We'll continue to bring Cogent circuits online at each of our locations when it becomes available.
We're very excited to have completed the Japanese localization and required support for our customer support, billing, trouble tickets, and systems management sites. どぞよろしくお願いします！
We're excited to have NTT America as a carrier providing routes to South East Asia and North America.
