LEMONT FURNACE, PA--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - United Network Services, Inc. (UNSi), a next generation carrier and provider of "intelligent & flexible" internet and managed services, announced today it was awarded the prestigious Best of Show Award at ITEXPO Austin 2012 for its Same IP Failover Solution (SIF). Over fifty products were evaluated by TMC editors throughout the week at ITEXPO Austin, placing emphasis on key features and benefits, its innovative qualities, ability to work with existing industry standards and products, and the degree to which the product contributes to the future development of communications products and services.
Same IP Failover (SIF) is a very unique back-up solution that enables a business to automatically failover from a primary Internet connection to a back-up Internet connection while maintaining the same inbound IP Addresses without the need for Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). Using SIF, UNSi can deliver a /29 to a client across multiple paths, eliminating the need for BGP or for an end user to procure their own autonomous system number (ASN). SIF can be delivered via various access options -- copper, fiber, coax or wireless. "We are thrilled to be recognized as an innovative thought leader by TMCnet for our SIF product," stated Allan Schwartz, Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning & Business Development. "We knew when we built SIF it was a very unique product that would set us apart from other providers, so to be recognized with this award is an attribution to our forward-thinking network engineers that built this product."
"The breadth of products and solutions that were showcased in this year's ITEXPO Austin Exhibit Hall have raised the bar in terms of innovation and quality within the communications and technology industries," said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and Conference Chairman. "We're pleased to honor the Best of Show Award winners, and we congratulate them for differentiating themselves in various technology categories amongst a large and highly competitive field."
