The modular design and a wide range of modules used allow to increase the capabilities of network and communication equipment in accordance with the requirements of network development.

The interaction of the main and backup centers of the NPC is organized using high-bandwidth fiber-optic links and using aggregation and automatic redundancy technologies.

Server Platform

The software and hardware complexes of the main and backup centers are based on the hardware platform of high-performance HP Superdome servers and have an identical configuration. The architecture of the complexes has a cluster technology and modern means to ensure reliable operation, including fault tolerance and redundancy mechanisms. The complexes contain monitoring tools that allow for the analysis of risky and critical situations before they occur. Data between the centers is replicated in real time, which ensures minimal losses in case of possible failures.

Data Storage

For long-term data storage, tape libraries are used, which allow organizing flexible data archiving strategies and scenarios, with full automation of the process and error verification. The libraries have various interfaces for data exchange, the throughput of which is up to 4 Tb/h.
