What connection are your game servers running on? Upstream and downstream?
The network is designed around a high-speed switched architecture. Each server is plugged into a 100mbit, fully-switched port on an edge switch. Each edge switch is then in turn plugged into two separate aggregation switches at 1gbit, with failover redundancy allowing either 1gbit link to fail.
The aggregation switches have multiple 2gbit uplinks to our core switches, which are Extreme Networks BlackDiamond carrier-class switches. These core switches interconnect to each other at 4gbits.
