Maps

This page explains in map style the layout of Massar's Network using the venerable MermaidJS.

Layer 1

The Layer 1 map displays how our sites are physically connected. We use Ethernet Virtual Leased Lines (VLL) from both IPng Networks and IP-Max to reach sites not directly connected to us.

Layer 3

The Layer 3 diagram shows how on an IP level we run connectivity on top of the Layer 1 physical connections. We use Wireguard and GRE tunnels to backhaul traffic and connect L1 disconnected sites.
