Miami, Florida – (The Hosting News) – October 16, 2008 – Integrated Tier-1 Internet exchange and managed IT infrastructure solutions provider, Terremark, has been chosen to provide the infrastructure for the WiMAX 4G network solution.
Manuel D. Medina, Chairman and CEO of Terremark noted, ”The selection of the NAP of the Americas for the back-end infrastructure of WiMAX further validates our facility as one of the most important Internet exchanges in the world. We are excited to help revolutionize the way people access content on the Internet.”
With wireless high-speed broadband connectivity, WiMAX-enabled laptops and mobile devices provide the freedom to connect to the Internet as easily as with a cell phone service.
Laying the foundation for broad and cost-effective deployment of WiMAX technologies, companies including Intel, are helping to deliver unprecedented mobility for Internet-connected devices. With speeds similar to DSL or cable and faster than using cell phone service to connect, WiMAX will allow access to data-intensive applications, including streaming media on the Internet, live video conferencing, mobile TV and more.
In August, the company completed deployment of the Infinistructure utility-computing platform at its facilities in Madrid and Amsterdam. The platform is anticipated to benefit Terremark’s European and American customers and has been met with high demand from current customers and prospects. Infinistructure’s enterprise-class server and storage infrastructure combines Terremark’s proprietary service-management platform with leading-edge virtualization technology from partners including VMWare, Cisco, and IBM, providing a highly scalable and flexible high-performance computing platform. Infinistructure’s on-demand network, storage and computing architecture allows customers to precisely match their infrastructure to their business needs, while leveraging a fully managed solution with plug-and-play access to network connectivity from multiple carriers. The Infinistructure platform is connected to the ESpanix exchange point in Spain and the AMS-IX exchange point in The Netherlands, the largest internet connection point in Europe with over 400 Gb/s in peak traffic.
