– (The Hosting News) – June 1, 2007 – Colocation, VoIP, and Internet backbone company, Level 3 Communications’ high-speed IP transit service, has been chosen for Jupiter Hosting’s upgrade, including 10 gigabit ethernet access circuits, throughout Silicon Valley.
Under the terms of the expanded multi-year service agreement, Level 3 will increase the total IP transit capacity it supplies to Jupiter Hosting. Level 3 will replace multiple single-gigabit Ethernet ports with 10 GigE circuits in three of Jupiter Hosting’s Silicon Valley, California locations. The upgrades are needed to support the expansion of the Jupiter Hosting network, enabling the firm to better serve its existing managed hosting customers, as well as to facilitate its entry into new markets. The upgrades will also simplify Jupiter Hosting’s Internet Protocol (IP) transit architecture to enable more efficient operations.
Ray Taft, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jupiter Hosting remarked, ”Our customers have come to expect exceptional network performance and uptime. When it comes to the underlying technologies we use to serve our customers, we select only the best upstream providers. Time and time again, Level 3 has proven their reliability and commitment to excellence, so selecting them for this expansion project was an easy decision to make. With the additional capacity these upgrades will provide, we’ll now have the transmission capabilities to deliver the content new IPTV and Video on-Demand frameworks require.”
