Verio/Xedia Team to Deliver High-Speed Access, Bandwidth Management

Web-hosting company Verio Inc. Tuesday
joined forces with Xedia
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.

The new bandwidth management solution is based on Xedia’s Access Point
Internet/IP access routers. The hardware will be bundled with Verio’s
dedicated fractional and full rate DS3 Internet connectivity services.

“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

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.
