CMG Rolls Out NaviNet

Internet conglomerateCMG Information Services today announced the launch of its NaviNet dial-up network for Internet Service Providers.

The company, which began as a product line of NaviSite Internet Services, built the NaviNet Technology Platform dial-up network. The platform aggregates multiple calling areas into megaPOPs, deploys advanced switch bypass technology to eliminate busy signals due to port congestion and relies on private transit Internet connectivity to bypass congested public peering points. This creates a highly reliable, low cost network with the industry's highest call completion rates, the firm said.

In addition to building a unique technology solution, NaviNet is partnering with Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs), a strategy designed to enable CLECs to offer data services with minimal investment.

"By spinning off NaviNet, CMG is expanding the breadth and depth of its Internet Group with the addition of Internet network infrastructure," said David Wetherell, chairman and CEO, CMG.

"A national dial-up network complements our existing portfolio of Internet software applications and interactive marketing companies. NaviNets technology will allow ISPs to increase capacity in current markets and quickly expand to new markets."
