Intellifiber Networks Introduces Low Latency Connectivity Between Chicago and Washington D.C.

Route Offers Industry-Leading Roundtrip Speed of 13.7 Milliseconds

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - June 14, 2010) -  Intellifiber Networks, serving the growing network needs of enterprise, service provider and government markets, today announced it is activating a new low latency network between Chicago and Washington D.C. This route offers Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps wavelength and Ethernet services with the fastest roundtrip speeds currently available. Several major financial institutions and service providers are already taking advantage of the service.

"Our purpose-built low latency network provides the fastest path for enterprises and carriers seeking secure and reliable routing between the Chicago and Washington D.C. metro areas," said Clint Heiden, president of Intellifiber Networks. "The need for low latency connectivity for applications covering financial trading, information sharing, gaming and media continues to grow rapidly. In the third quarter we will complete our network triangle, allowing seamless low latency connectivity between New York, Chicago and Washington D.C. We are also taking advantage of our unique network footprint to add low latency service in significant yet underserved markets such as the financial centers of Wilmington, Del., and Richmond, Va."

In addition, Intellifiber's industry-leading metrics back all of its low latency service offerings. These metrics include guaranteed installation intervals, 24 x 7 real-time latency monitoring and the most stringent service level agreements (SLAs) in the industry.

Every route segment has been specifically designed for speed by leveraging the latest Ciena equipment in dispersion compensation technology for the reduction of latency. Intellifiber's purpose-built low latency routes are also engineered to avoid telecom congestion points and provide diversity from common carriers. All routes are scalable with bandwidth solutions up to 100 Gbps.

Intellifiber's low latency architecture provides access directly into downtown Washington D.C. and major data centers throughout northern Virginia. The Intellifiber network also interconnects with other major data, service provider and hosting facilities throughout the eastern United States.
