Oregon based telecommunications provider expands its IP network into the Pittock Internet Exchange
in Portland – one of the largest telecom hubs in the US.
Portland, Oregon – February 24, 2011 – Infostructure, a new generation provider of IP cloud services, today announced its network expansion into the Pittock Internet Exchange in Portland, Oregon – one of the largest telecommunications hubs in the US.
Fueled by customer growth in IP cloud services and the need for greater network capacity, reliability and scalability, InfoStructure has upgraded its IP network by establishing a point of presence into Pittock, which hosts many tier-1 carriers such as AT&T Local Service, Qwest Communications, Verizon Business, XO Communications and more.
InfoStructure’s Managing Partner, Jeff Rhoden, sees the move by his company as a natural evolution in the company’s growth.
“Our network expansion into Pittock accommodates our customer growth and satisfies the growing demand for IP cloud services of the highest quality. With the current paradigm shift towards IP services such as VoIP, hosted PBX, Business VoIP, cloud computing and other IP-driven services, we are attempting to stay ahead of the curve by fulfilling the growing demand for those services while, at the same time, continuing to provide our traditional TDM voice and data services.”
In addition, InfoStructure will connect its network through NWAX (Northwest Access Exchange), a member based network exchange which improves Internet performance by its ability to minimize router hops.
InfoStructure represents a new generation of telecommunications providers harnessing the power of the Internet and providing network services for small and medium businesses in the Western US. In business since 1994, the company started as an ISP providing Internet access in southern Oregon, and by 2003, it transitioned into voice services as a CLEC (competitive local exchange carrier) and began offering traditional business and residential phone services. By 2007, InfoStructure implemented a fully redundant IP network and began offering business VoIP. Today the company offers a wide range of IP voice and data services, as well as traditional telephone and Internet services. For more information, visit www.infostructure.net.
