Telx and Intelisys Enter Channel Partnership

Intelisys Telecom Agents Offer Business Communications Clients Direct Access to Telx's Secure Data Center Services in 15 Strategic U.S. Locations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  Telx®, the leading interconnection and colocation provider in strategic North American markets, announced today that it has entered an independent marketing partnership agreement with Intelisys Communications Inc., a leading master agency distributor of business communications services. Under the terms of the partnership agreement, Telx has engaged Intelisys as a marketing and sales agent on a non-exclusive basis, and Intelisys' Telecom Agents can now offer their customers the best in carrier-neutral connectivity choice and colocation in all 15 of Telx's North American locations.

"Intelisys is proud to be a channel partner with Telx, one of the fastest-growing interconnection and colocation companies in the U.S. today," said Jay Bradley, President of Intelisys' Telecom Agency division. "We see great value in the fact that Telx is carrier-neutral, allowing end users to be one cross-connect away from a secure, direct connection to any of the hundreds of carriers, ISPs and enterprises within the Telx ecosystem. Telx will be a powerful new addition to the Intelisys portfolio and the partnership is already resonating with our top performing Sales Partners."

The partnership agreement is also channel neutral. This allows Telx sales executives to provide direct marketing and sales support to Intelisys Sales Partners, resulting in a higher close rate and a more collaborative channel relationship that benefits both companies.

"Telx is excited to partner with an agency with the magnitude of capabilities, back office support, agents and breadth of offerings as Intelisys. This is a strong alliance that will help us grow our interconnection and colocation facilities nationwide, while empowering Intelisys agents to provide the most choice in connectivity to their customers," said Kirk Horton, VP of Channel Sales for Telx. "This channel partnership will give Intelisys a competitive edge as they seek rapid market entry in key U.S. markets, giving their business communications customers the ability to choose from literally hundreds of providers while keeping connectivity costs low."
