InfoStreet's decision to participate in this exchange at One Wilshire was part of their ongoing dedication to customer service and commitment to Service Level Agreement (SLA) and network uptime. InfoStreet's current SLA contract is 99.95, but as part of this move, InfoStreet will now offer customers a 99.99% SLA for network uptime with aspirations for "five 9s" in the future. In addition, Any² is a neutral, privately-owned Internet and packet exchange technology open to all One Wilshire and Market Post Tower clients which allows users to interconnect with any other Any² users with 100MBPS or 1GBPS access port speeds, using either copper or fiber. Through this enhanced packet technology, clients are able to route IP traffic more efficiently, while providing faster, more reliable and lower-latency Internet and VoIP access to their customers.
"One Wilshire is the gateway for virtually all data that enters North America," says Siamak Farah, president of InfoStreet. "In addition, nearly every major telecommunications company has a switching facility in this building, so by operating our network from here, we can benefit from the cost and speed advantages available that naturally arise from ease-of-interconnectivity ... and then pass those along to our customers."
"Our building serves as a telecommunications carrier hotel to over 300 companies, and we are proud to be the data center of choice for InfoStreet," says John Savageau, senior vice president, operations at One Wilshire. "For companies such as InfoStreet, we can ensure interconnection to the best and fastest networks available.
The combination of access to physical interconnections, the Any² Exchange, and One Wilshire's on-site technical support staff will ensure InfoStreet a powerful hub for distributing application services to the global network community."
