Superior Network

Local and international connectivity

Melita runs a mature and fully redundant nationwide fibre optic network aimed at offering the very best class in connectivity services. Melita’s Madliena-based data centre is the only carrier-neutral facility in Malta, and it has been setup to provide customers with the best possible choice.

Dedicated, high capacity point-to-point international circuits enable Melita’s customers to extend their network to any cloud services provider or any remote location in the world. These high capacity links can be delivered as a Layer 3 solution through IP transit, or as a point-to-point service over MPLS or a managed Ethernet.

Traffic to mainland Europe is transited through multiple submarine cables out of Malta. These links are then interconnected to a redundant fibre optic backbone belonging to Melita’s partners in Italy, and which then connect onwards to all major hubs in Europe and beyond. Melita also has a direct point-of-presence (PoP) in Milan, where it peers with the world’s largest Tier I internet providers, including CenturyLink, TeliaCarrier and Cogent. This allows Melita’s customers to benefit from enterprise-grade symmetric Internet connectivity from diverse providers at no contention, with low latency and at high speeds.

Multi-Cloud Connect

As the adoption of cloud is continuously on the rise, enterprises are seeking solutions offering private and high availability connections from their offices in Malta to the cloud services provider(CSP) of their choice. Through its nationwide fibre optic network, Melita provides private connections to leading cloud providers including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Oracle, Google & IBM Cloud. This is being achieved through a strategic partnership with TeliaCarrier. TeliaCarrier owns and operates one of the world’s most extensive fibre backbones with multiple direct connections to all CSPs couple with a fully protected connection to Melita. Multi-cloud connect offers a carrier grade SLA network which bypasses the internet for a more consistent experience with the lowest possible latency.

DDoS Mitigation

Today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing in size, frequency and complexity. No enterprise is immune to these threats. Application availability, website uptime and infrastructure accessibility are all critical for business continuity. Every minute of downtime can result in lost productivity and revenue.

Melita is offering enterprise grade DDoS mitigation solutions through CenturyLink – one of the largest global connectivity networks. CenturyLink provides layers of defense through enhanced network routing, rate limiting and filtering that can be paired with advanced network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing center solutions.

CenturyLink’s mitigation approach is informed by threat intelligence derived from visibility across its global infrastructure and data correlation. The carrier-agnostic CenturyLink DDoS Mitigation Service helps solve this problem by pulling customer traffic through route redirection onto CenturyLink global scrubbing centers for cleansing. Attack traffic is filtered out and good traffic is sent back to the customer via a dedicated Melita internet connection. This means that Melita, in partnership with CenturyLink solves business challenges by mitigating denial-of-service (DoS) attacks so that customers can stay connected to the internet, while websites and critical applications stay up and running.
