Secure, Unique Routing Provides Fastest Speeds

Richmond, VA — April 19, 2010 — Intellifiber Networks, serving the growing network needs of enterprise, service provider and government markets, today announced it has activated a new low latency system between New York City and Chicago. Intellifiber now offers Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps wavelength and Ethernet services with the fastest roundtrip speeds currently available. Several major financial institutions and service providers are already taking advantage of the system and the outstanding service provided by Intellifiber.

“Our purpose-built low latency route provides the fastest path for financial institutions and carriers seeking secure and diverse routing between the New York City and Chicago metros,” said Clint Heiden, president of Intellifiber Networks. “Intellifiber has met the demand head on with industry-leading metrics around our low latency service offering. These metrics include guaranteed installation within 48 hours, 24 x 7 real-time latency monitoring, and scalable bandwidth solutions up to 100 Gbps.”

Every route segment has been specifically designed for speed by leveraging the latest in dispersion compensation technology for the reduction of latency. “Intellifiber’s custom-built network utilizes Ciena’s leading low latency connectivity technologies, yielding the fastest connections between key financial markets in New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Chicago,” said Gary B.
