Floram Park, New Jersey – (The Hosting News) – March 20, 2006 – Telecommunication solution company, Global Crossing, has released its Global Crossing Colocation OnSite-Assist.
According to the company, the new enterprise will enable customers to enter new markets and roll out converged IP services, while reducing their operating expenses as they expand. The colocation service offers on-site technical support and allows carriers, enterprises and service providers to colocate their equipment at Global Crossing’s Points of Presence (POPs). The sites link customers’ business centers using high-speed, intra-city SONET/SDH and DWDM rings.
Anthony Christie, Chief Marketing Officer for Global Crossing commented, ”Global Crossing colocation enables our customers to take advantage of our worldwide footprint and rapidly facilitate their network expansion with our advanced IP and transport services. Colocation allows our customers to accelerate their revenue realization. It eliminates the need to build their own networks and reduces their operating expenses, since they need not make local real estate investments or employ area-based technicians.”
The company recently expanded colocation service to six new locations in the United States, including Ashburn, Va., Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Newark, N.J., and San Jose, Calif. TeleGeography Research Analyst, Eric Schoonover added, ”Due to the growth of bandwidth intensive applications and the sensitivity of service delivery, enterprises are demanding higher quality colocation. Value added colocation services like Global Crossing’s OnSite-Assist meet that demand.”
Colocation OnSite-Assist is intended to support Global Crossing’s colocation customers requiring local technical assistance for their remote colocation needs. Customers such as facilities-based carriers, multinational corporations, CLECs, ISPs, government agencies and research networks can arrange for technical support in remote locations without having to hire additional staff.
technicians monitor customers’ hardware components, including signals, cables, routers, servers and switches. They conduct basic maintenance activities such as equipment reboots, power cycling and loop backs and provide basic observation and reporting of the hosted infrastructure and environment where the equipment is located, including recording inventory and managing the physical storage of equipment.
