Telehouse America and Telehouse Europe to Offer Transatlantic Ethernet Connectivity via "Global Interlink"

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Telehouse America, the United States' leading provider of dedicated data centers, colocation facilities, international Internet exchanges, and managed IT services, along with its sister company, Telehouse Europe, today announced plans to offer their latest service, Global Interlink, a Layer 2 interconnection that offers fast, reliable, transatlantic Ethernet connectivity, to all Telehouse customers housing equipment in any of the Company's facilities in New York, London and Paris beginning October 1st.

By utilizing the power of virtual LAN (VLAN), Global Interlink will provide client equipment with transparent Ethernet communication as though they were connected to the same Layer 2 switch. No longer limited by physical distances or unpredictable circuit-size cost swings, VLAN provides Telehouse and customers' networks with logical connectivity options in several parts of the world, ensuring security, scalability and multi-vendor support for globalized network management.

Telehouse will also serve as the full-scale point of contact for all data center and connectivity operational support. Global Interlink subscribers' transatlantic VLAN connectivity will be managed with 24/7 network monitoring and service desk assistance. In the event that a customer's equipment requires attention, Telehouse's on-site engineering team will be automatically alerted to provide technical support. Installation will be a minimal, one-time charge, for access to a full-duplex port connection and because it is powered by VLAN, a local loop is not necessary. In addition, Telehouse's web-based traffic monitoring system (powered by Telehouse Systems Observer) will enable customers to monitor traffic statistics, in addition to their circuit status. Furthermore, Telehouse's Global Interlink offers a cost-effective VLAN service that promises the shortest lead time and latency, and ensures ease of management and enhanced scalability options.

"Telehouse's launch of Global Interlink within our US and European data centers offers our customers a fast, reliable option for transatlantic Ethernet connectivity," said Satoshi Adachi, Telehouse America's Manager of Business Development and Corporate Planning. "This service expansion bolsters the growth of Telehouse's business on a worldwide scale, positioning us as a data center brand with greater impact, while offering our customers enhanced connectivity to a global market of prospective customers."
