Web-hosting company Verio Inc. Tuesday joined forces with Xedia Corp. to offer high-speed Internet access and bandwidth management services to businesses.

Through the end of May the new Verio service is being pffered with free use of Xedia hardware to provide businesses with dedicated T3/DS3 Internet connectivity and enable e-businesses to control bandwidth allocation and usage, when customers sign-on for two-year contract.

"Internet access is a business-critical asset, and companies need to manage it to optimize their Internet investment," said Buddy Cunningham, Verio's vice president of sales and marketing. "With Xedia's Access Point and our high-performance national Internet backbone, we can deliver a service that enables customers to more efficiently monitor and manage their access bandwidth, as well as easily upgrade to higher bandwidth services."

"Verio's new Internet access and bandwidth management service eliminates the 'free for all' Internet access model by allowing their customers to manage how their Internet bandwidth is used," said Bob Steinkrauss, president of Xedia Corporation. "Our Access Point products deliver the industry-leading performance, service level visibility and control business customers need to manage the cost and quality of their wide area network services."

Verio plans to supports the new service with its national network that utilizes OC-12, OC-3 and DS-3 links that connect national exchange points and Verio access points.
