CORE Service

The CORE service allows an organization or network to become a member of the “wide-area network,” or WAN, that is comprised of all the Pacific Northwest Gigapop participants. As a member of this regional wide-area network, traffic between your organization and any of the other PNWGP participants (including Pacific Wave participants) passes on the WAN circuits rather than over your commodity circuits. By keeping this traffic local, there will be a savings in time (the packets get to their destination more quickly) and money (fewer packets crossing your commodity ISP circuit).
