Managed Web Hosting Firm, Voxel Dot Net, Enters Dark Fiber Agreement

Looking Glass Chosen For Its Diverse Dark Fiber Transport Capabilities, Allowing For Virtually Unlimited Scalability For Its Hig

Data transport services company, Looking Glass Networks, Inc., has entered into a multi-year agreement with Voxel Dot Net, a privately held New York-based managed services provider, for Looking Glass' DarkGLASS dark fiber services, EtherGLASS Ethernet transport services and CentraGLASS collocation services.

Voxel Dot Net chose Looking Glass for its diverse dark fiber transport capabilities, allowing for virtually unlimited scalability for its high bandwidth clients.

According to Raj Dutt, CEO of Voxel Dot Net, ''Given the rapid growth of our network, our own dark fiber ring was the only real option. We were able to expand our network to key carrier hotels in the New York metro area, including Equinix Newark, 111 Eighth Avenue and Telehouse - all initially interconnected with 10Gigabit Ethernet speeds. Our ability to reach transit providers and peers is maximized. This ultimately results in a better performing, more resilient network for our customers.''

In addition to its transport services, Looking Glass also delivered 3000 square feet of private datacenter space to Voxel, built to custom specifications.

Mr. Dutt added, ''We had one account manager work with us from planning to production and Looking Glass was able to get the entire space constructed within 60 days. We are now less than a millisecond away from all major carriers in New York. We have much better connectivity than what we'd have in a single carrier hotel.''

Nick Lenoci, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Looking Glass Networks said, ''Our CentraGLASS hosting service was a natural extension to Looking Glass' current product offerings and providers like Voxel Dot Net are exactly the type of customer this service was intended to benefit. We are pleased that our hosting service was an excellent fit for Voxel Dot Net's immediate requirements and we are able to offer a wide variety of complementary services, including additional space in the New York and Washington DC hosting facilities, for the company's future needs.''
