TELEHOUSE America Brings NYIIX Connectivity to Its TELEHOUSE Center Customers

STATEN ISLAND, NY--(Marketwire - July 11, 2008) - TELEHOUSE International Corporation of America, the leading provider of dedicated data centers, colocation facilities, international Internet exchanges, and managed IT services, recently announced plans to extend NYIIX's reach to the Company's TIER3/4, SAS70 certified facility and headquarters located at the Teleport, 7 Teleport Dr. in Staten Island by Q4 2008.

By turning on a new exchange point in Staten Island, TELEHOUSE offers Customers there, the ability to peer with other Customers physically connected to NYIIX in New York City's three major carrier hotels at 25 Broadway, 60 Hudson St., and 111 Eighth Ave. Plans were also announced to virtually extend NYIIX's reach to two additional carrier hotels at 32 Ave. of Americas in Manhattan and 165 Halsey St. in Newark, NJ.

This extension adds to the value of NYIIX immediately by augmenting the number of Customers interconnecting and exchanging IP traffic through it, as well as offering a location just south of Manhattan with disaster recovery suites, dedicated data center sites, and high-power density colocation facilities for current Members to consider expanding to.

TELEHOUSE also announced they would be adding quagga-based route servers to both their NYIIX and LAIIX exchange points. With the addition of route server access, TELEHOUSE Customers will experience highly advanced peering with multiple simultaneous network routes. This expansion makes TELEHOUSE one of the only peering providers to offer route server access in the United States today. This project is expected to be completed by the beginning of Q3 2008.

"By extending NYIIX's reach to public and private peering switches at 7 Teleport Dr., 165 Halsey St., and 32 Ave. of Americas, TELEHOUSE further solidifies NYIIX's standing as the top peering exchange within the greater New York region," said Akio Sugeno, TELEHOUSE's Director of Internet Engineering and Operations. "Each of these expansions offers prospective media, entertainment, financial, legal, government and health industry clients extended accessibility and improved connection to major providers in a much larger network space."
