Telx Launches First Video Exchange to Enable Advanced Video Adoption by Enterprises

Carrier-Neutral Video VPN-NAP Allows Cross-Platform, Cross-Provider Communication

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 25, 2009) - Key Highlights:

--  Telx provides the first network-neutral Exchange for transmission of
    video traffic.
--  Company establishes relationship with Toronto-based IP V Gateways to
    support new Telx Video Xchange VPN-NAP.
--  Telx provides carrier-neutral and video equipment neutral video

Telx, one of the largest and fastest-growing domestic interconnection and colocation data center operators, today announced that it has become the first colocation and interconnection provider to offer a virtual private network-network access point (VPN-NAP) that is optimized for video transmission. Branded as the Telx Video Xchange, the new interexchange service enables customers to deploy and use video conferencing or Telepresence equipment with other entities on different networks. The new service solves the critical inter-enterprise video issues that have hindered the adoption of such technology to date, such as mis-matched QoS, addressing conflicts and asynchronous security, for carriers, enterprises, and systems integrators.

VPN-NAPs are network exchange facilities that securely connect networks for private, private to private, and/or public communications. Using this architecture for the Telx Video Xchange provides a secure business-to-business video exchange that enables a customer to connect to their customers, suppliers, and partners who are operating on different private networks. Standards-based addressing, security and quality of service (QoS) transliteration are handled in the Telx Video Xchange, ensuring quality transmission of video for customers.

"Telx provides extensive secure space for customer equipment, such as video bridges. Also our carrier-neutral colocation environment allows cross-connections with a global marketplace of more than 600 service providers. This makes Telx an excellent provider to offer a video exchange," said Rose Klimovich, Vice President of Product Development and Product Management for Telx. "Leveraging our network neutral environment, customers can enable use of enterprise video across private networks by in building cross-connects. Telx provides the previously missing component in the exploding world of enterprise video communications."

The Telx Video Xchange will be powered by IP V Gateways' Connectivity+ platform, a robust video telecommunications software platform that enables videoconferencing, as well as integrated audio, desktop conferencing systems, and Web-enabled devices, across carrier and private network boundaries. The platform solves the problem of maintaining quality across carrier networks while enabling systems to interoperate.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with the premier interconnection and colocation company in the United States," said Pat Montani, CEO of IP V Gateways. "Our company sees huge advantages for our current video service provider and carrier customers, as well as for Telx's customers in moving to a real and ubiquitous interexchange environment where quality and security are paramount."

Telx's first Video Xchange will be located in the company's facility in 60 Hudson Street in New York City.
