i3D.net transition to 400G routers
13 December 2023

In the era of high-speed digital experiences, gamers, game developers, studios and enterprise clients expect more than just average connectivity. At i3D.net, we understand the importance of providing ultra-low-latency and high-performance solutions to our diverse clientele, which includes giants like Ubisoft, EA, Epic Games, Discord and many more. For over 20 years, we have been at the forefront of the network infrastructure industry, serving over 840 million users across the globe. 

Our ambitious goal of serving 1 billion users by 2025 demands the continuous expansion and upgrade of our global network. We are thrilled to announce that we’ve reached a pivotal milestone in our quest to provide world-class services: we are well on our way to upgrading to 400G capable routers in our 60+ Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world, starting with our Paris location.

Why the upgrade to 400G?

Digital experiences today are not just confined to text and static images; they include video, voice, live-streaming and real-time online multiplayer gaming. These forms of media and interaction require significantly more bandwidth and ultra-reliable latency to function effectively. 

Our upgrade to 400G capable routers ensures we are prepared for the data-intensive demands of next-generation applications. By using Juniper’s MX10008/MX10004 routers for our PoPs, we’re ready to scale effortlessly, offering superior cost-per-bit economics and high-density connectivity. 

Speed, performance and reliability

The Juniper MX Series routers bring unparalleled scalability and programmability to our network. This technology allows us to utilize our proprietary anti-DDoS solution to block attacks at the edge, ensuring our end-users never have to experience unexpected downtimes. With high-density 400GbE connectivity around the world, we are creating highly responsive experiences, essential for competitive gaming and real-time applications. 

Impact on gamers and online communities

Everyone, to a bigger or lesser extent, despises lag. Our new 400G routers will allow you to engage in ultra-competitive games using i3D.net’s highly reliable connectivity infrastructure, making your experience smoother and more immersive. Whether you’re competing in a Rocket League match or hacking and slashing through your opponents in Divine Knockout, the high density and low latency interconnectivity ensures that gameplay remains smooth and immersive, no matter the size of player demand. 

Benefits for developers and enterprise clients

This upgrade isn’t just a win for gamers; it’s a significant advantage for game studios and enterprises. By leveraging i3D.net’s ultra-low latency interconnections, our gaming customers deliver seamless fast-paced gaming experiences to their customers no matter the size of their community, allowing for continuous and hiccup-less gameplay. 
For enterprise customers this upgrade means faster network speeds, enhanced reliability, scalability, and uptime, allowing for future-readiness and business continuity no matter how big your business needs get.

At i3D.net, we are committed to providing the best possible end-user experiences through our game hosting platforms. The transition to 400G capable routers is not merely a technological upgrade; it’s a strategic move towards delivering unmatched speed, performance, and reliability for our customers.
