Peak 10 Atlanta to Deploy 10Gb Port from XO to Enhance Bandwidth

By Divya Narain, TMCnet Contributor

Peak 10 Inc. has announced that it is going to deploy a 10Gb port from XO Communications, which will further strengthen the Peak 10 network. This circuit addition will consolidate Peak 10’s already extensive Internet presence and will be added to Peak 10’s redundant Internet network. Thanks to the port from XO Communications (News - Alert), which will be installed in Peak 10 Atlanta, Peak 10 customers will enjoy additional large-scale bandwidth across the company’s 10 markets.

“As our customer base expands, we continually upgrade our high-performance and fully-redundant network infrastructure,” said Jeff Biggs, the senior vice president of operations and engineering at Peak 10. “This strategy includes upgrading the capacity of our network backbone and further positioning our data centers for peering directly with each other. This peering design provides additional bandwidth to both customers and Peak 10 and allows for rapid implementations of our customers’ network requirements.”

“Our network enhancements allow for an increase in the number of external peering relationships available to each Peak 10 market, as well as the flexibility for Peak 10 to assimilate and add data centers in both existing and future markets,” said Ronnie Frames, the director of network services for Peak 10. “They also bolster Peak 10’s already unprecedented level of customer service and allow our expert engineering team to respond to high volume Internet service requests quickly and efficiently out of our high-bandwidth peering centers. We will continue to enhance the performance and resilience of our network infrastructure.”
