CSD Home :: Residential DSL
been specializing in computing and telecommunications services for over
ten years, but you'll find that our services and technology is state
of the art. We pride ourselves in over engineering our services so that
we can continue to provide the level of service you should expect.
do we compare to other providers?
Oh, and one other factor, how long have they been in business, and how long does it look like they'll remain in business?
Knowledge - CSD Internet has decades of experience in network services, with expertise on staff or on call for any challenge you can present. Our extensive collection of systems that we actively support include UNIX, Linux, Macintosh and Windows computers. Backgrounds for experience come from Wall Street and MCI. Rest assured that our equipment is optimized, backed up and secure, and monitored 24 hours a day.
Service - CSD's support staff is on call 24x7 (for dedicated line and web customers) to answer your questions, and we have the resources and background to zero in on the solution in the most expediant manner. Our customers have expected and received that level of service for years in computer networking, and can count on that to continue for the future. In an industry where Internet businesses come and go overnight, we'll be there.
Bandwidth - CSD has direct connections to two of the largest Internet backbone providers, Sprint and ANS/UUNet, making us one of the few Tier two providers in the state. (Also one of the few with backup connections). Both carriers have been chosen for their expertise and reliability, none the less connections to both are necessary to provide the level of service we require. Our primary network bandwidth connection is via OC12 transport (fiber optic), with our own dedicated SONET ring providing a secure connection to the ANS backbone. Our backup path to Sprint takes a totally separate physical path (via a separate SONET OC3 in a separate fiber bundle on a facility entrance facing a separate geographical direction) to ensure maximum redundancy.
We pride ourselves in providing a reliable and true connection. While it is easy and common for Internet Service Providers to overcommit their Internet backbone connections by reselling the bandwidth many times over, we are able to commit to our customers that they will never be bound or limited in their bandwidth due to overselling of our backbone connections.
Processing power - Horror stories of non-responsive websites, slow connections and lost email. Often due to human error, also often due to processing power "brownouts", or overloads. Email, DNS (Name services), web hosting, all bound by processing power and reliability. Our servers were built to run reliably without fail, and they meet that commitment. Our systems are also engineered to support bursts of activity, we'll always have excess capacity, in both processing power and bandwidth, to support any activity your site requires. With backup processors, currently running at under 10% of total capacity, our systems are engineered with sufficient resources to serve the needs of our Internet clients reliably and well.
CSD Internet, in it for the long run
CSD Internet is in a unique position in the state of Colorado. Our servers are currently hardened production DEC8400 machines running under Digital Unix comparable to the hosting servers for Yahoo, Netscape and yes even Microsoft. Our customers are typically medium to large businesses who have experienced other providers, and are in many cases using CSD for other services beyond and outside of the Internet.
This business base, with our years of experience in telecommunications and computer services, means you will not only receive the level of service and expertise you need to work the Internet, but also that you'll be able to count on us being here for you, now and in the future. You also have our commitment to continually improve service and reliability. Our customers won't settle for less.
In an industry that is going through a lot of changes, if you want a provider that is a leader in technology today, will continue to be a leader tomorrow, and throughout will be here to answer your questions and guidance, pick a provider that has some track record of performance and experience. Pick CSD.
