Intellifiber Networks Provides Interconnectivity to DuPont Fabros' Ashburn, VA Data Center Campus

Exemplifies Intellifiber's Growing Data Center, Carrier Hotel and Hosting Facility Interconnectivity Platform

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - Intellifiber Networks, serving the growing network needs of enterprise, service provider and government markets, today announced it has interconnected its fiber network to DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.'s (NYSE: DFT) Ashburn Corporate Campus located in Ashburn, VA. The DFT Ashburn campus currently consists of four facilities totaling approximately 400,000 square feet of raised floor space and 78 megawatts of critical load under management. The flexible design with enhanced power and cooling capacity makes it one of the leading data center facilities in the world.

"Our customers require diverse, high-capacity fiber providers to be interconnected with our facilities. The addition of Intellifiber Networks to the DFT Ashburn campus provides superior connectivity options and access to the entire suite of Intellifiber services," said Lee Kestler, senior vice president of sales and leasing, DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.

Customers within the DFT Ashburn campus have full access to Intellifiber's suite of Layer 2 and Layer 3 services. Intellifiber's fiber connection allows customers to route diversely from other carriers, both in and out of the facility, and across the entire Intellifiber network, including major carrier hubs in Chicago, Washington DC, New York and Philadelphia.

"The DFT Ashburn campus is a prime example of how Intellifiber employs creative solutions to exceed customer expectations," said Bill Cook, vice president of service delivery, Intellifiber Networks. "When we experienced delays with another provider who was to deliver last-mile connectivity into the facility, Intellifiber pulled in its own fiber and lit the facility, connecting the campus almost a year ahead of schedule."

Intellifiber Networks interconnects with major data, carrier and hosting facilities in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC. The company also has lit capacity into a variety of centers in such markets as Norfolk, Richmond, Wilmington, Albany, Syracuse, and Buffalo.
