Core180 Expands Network Connectivity Solutions in telx Core Interconnection Facilities

Network Integrator Leverages Carrier-Class, Wholesale PoPs to Offer Global Organizations More for Less

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 15, 2007) - Core180 Inc., a leading network integrator, has chosen telx Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection Facilities in New York and Atlanta to expand their managed network solutions for large business and government networks. Core180's managed integrated solutions leverage the density of carriers available within the telx facilities by offering customers physical proximity to multiple, competing, carrier networks in one location. The combined telx facilities host more than 400 service providers from which to choose in a wholesale environment. Core180 clients, in turn, are afforded greater savings, choice and flexibility for "last mile" transport and access.

The choice of telx as an interconnection provider advances Core180's unique business model. Core180 arranges transport facilities connecting clients' premises to carrier-neutral interconnection facilities such as telx's -- also referred to as "carrier hotels" and "meet me rooms" -- where the world's largest telecommunications providers connect to one another's networks. By providing direct connections to these national and global points of interconnection, Core180 enables large businesses to purchase services on a wholesale, a la carte basis from multiple best-in-class suppliers, rather than on a retail, bundled basis from a single carrier.

Core180 offers customers a complete managed solution through CoreConnect, a proprietary network management platform accessed through an easy-to-use Web-based interface. This online-accessible tool enables users to order, track and manage the physical-layer network resources within the phone closet, data center or interconnection facility.

The telx solution complements Core180's business model to return performance and value via proximity to diverse global network operators available within the telx Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection facilities. David Baule, CEO of Core180, chose the telx solution, realizing the benefit of providing a managed-service layer to enterprise and government telecom managers not familiar with the network-dense, carrier-neutral option of telecom hotel facilities.

"The telx facilities and cross connection model work well for us," Core180's Baule said. "With a single deployment, we can easily provide our customers access to a world of networks and markets."

"Core180 is an ideal solution provider for our carrier-neutral facilities," said Eric Shepcaro, CEO of telx. "Core180 has developed a model that opens the door for enterprises and government agencies to better leverage facilities like ours. The Core180 platform complements the existing telx carrier business, and brings a new set of buyers to our Meet Me Room marketplace."
