THE CLAIM
Multiple physical connections to major internet backbone carriers or tier-1 ISP via:
• SingTel (Global)
• Starhub (Singapore)
• NTT (Japan, USA)
• PCCW (Hong Kong, China)
• Deutsche Telekom AG (Europe)
• Hurricane Electric (US)

Single physical connection to one internet backbone carrier only. It claim to be multi-homed as the backbone carrier are surely connected to other providers at some point. It remains a single point of failure.

THE NETWORK CONNECTION

WHAT IT'S CALLED
Multi-homed Network
Single-homed Network
WHY IT MATTERS
Single Point of Failure.

On a single-homed network, if something goes wrong and the internet service provider connection shuts down, all of the connections related to it will go down with it.

On a multi-homed network however, a failure on one end can easily be fixed because the traffic will automatically be re-routed into the other available networks it is directly connected to.
WHAT TO ASK
Is your network multi-homed and physically connected to a tier-1 ISP carrier?
• Purpose: A company can claim to be multi-homed by having a network with an upstream provider that has the actual physical connection to tier 1 ISP carriers, but on their own does not have that connection.

Do you have more than 2 tier-1 ISP carriers?
• Purpose: to see companies that only have 2 physical connections to tier-1 ISP carriers (dual-homed networks) that refer to themselves as multi-homed.
