According to quality and the range and support of its services it is the absolute top in its branch and is one of the most experienced and stable companies – providing services since 1996.

IP connectivity and technologies
Casablanca INT and its services use the most up-to-date technologies (Juniper networks, Hewlett-Packard/3Com/H3C, Cisco Systems). The main connectivity to the Internet network is 20 Gb/s within the NIX.CZ node and 10+5 Gb/s for foreign operation. Casablanca as a LIR (Local Internet Register) has its own IPv4 as well as IPv6
address space. The company has concluded peering contracts with members of NIX.CZ and other important IT companies on the market, which gives its customers easier access to other networks.
For 11 years, Casablanca INT has been a valid and active member of the NIC.CZ association, an independent and neutral association of internet service providers interconnecting their networks. It participates in the future development and promotion of the IPv6 protocol among other things.
As one of the first Internet service providers in the Czech Republic the company started to support the higher security of domain services with DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) security technology. DNSSEC givers its users the certainty that the information obtained from DNS was provided by the correct source, is complete and its integrity was not disturbed during transmission.
In 2007 the company invested more than 30 million CZK in increasing its ServerHousing service capacities and introducing voice services on the NGN (next generation networks) basis to complete its portfolio of comprehensive telecommunications services.
During the last two years Casablanca INT has also acquired some companies - one of the most important was the purchase of Netway.CZ, s.r.o. in the autumn of 2009, which helped to increase the portfolio of services and the number of customers of the company.
Other investments (annually over 20 mil. CZK) were mainly for extending the Casablanca DataCentre, a new voice services platform, extending the company’s own data infrastructure and developing software solutions outsourcing such as managed and dedicated servers. The company also invests considerable amounts in developing customer care, the technical support of customers through monitoring and supporting our services.
In the summer and autumn of 2010 another new part of the DataCentre was built, which is now one of the largest commercial premises for servers in the Czech Republic. The new data room (with the sequential number HC8), which was opened in October 2010, has extended the data room area by another 200 m2, providing positions for 114 new customer and bringing several unique features to the Czech market. Our 1/4 racks at affordable prices, a unique cooling system using physically closed cold aisles and the Fogtec hi-pressurized mists system using high-pressure fog are certainly worth mentioning.
The overall area of Casablanca INT’s DataCentre for the ServerHousing service and new software solutions is now more than 1600 m2. More information about the DataCentre.
