Globix and Cisco Work Together to Offer End-to-End Networking Solutions
Cisco Powered Network to Deliver Advanced Networking Services to Globix Customers in New York
New York, – July 13, 1998 – Globix Corporation and
Cisco Systems, Inc. have announced that they are combining efforts
to offer Internet access to large and medium-sized business customers
in New York.
With a Cisco Powered Network, Globix offers customers reliable,
secure and high-performance Internet services. The relationship highlights
the focus of both Globix and Cisco on using intelligent broadband
IP networking to deliver enhanced connectivity and network-based applications.
“Cisco shares our vision that the IP network is the foundation for delivering
intelligent business solutions, providing our customers with strategic
competitive advantages,” said Marc H. Bell, President and CEO of Globix.
“By working with a leader such as Cisco, we can bring advanced, differentiated
networking solutions to market quickly.”
Globix uses Cisco 3640 routers and Cisco IOS™ software
to provide Direct Access to the Internet. Globix Co-location
service makes use of Cisco Catalyst Switches and Cisco 7500 Series
routers. In addition, Cisco LocalDirector is used for customers who
subscribe to Globix Web Hosting. DistributedDirector will handle
traffic load distribution between multiple geographically dispersed
servers as the Globix network expands globally. Intelligent
routing decisions are made courtesy of Cisco 7500 and 7200 Series
routers. Clusters of 7200 Series routers provide effective traffic
aggregation and quality of service management. A near-term upgrade
to the high-performance Cisco 12000 Series gigabit switch routers
(GSR) is planned. The Cisco Catalyst 5000 Switching Systems are used
to perform underlying layer 2 switching. “Cisco equipment will continue
to play a major role in the rapid growth of the Globix network.
It is critical to maintaining the exceptional reliability our customers
have come to expect from Globix,” said Bell.
“Cisco’s high-performance, reliable networking solutions enable service
providers to offer consistent services,” said Don Listwin, executive
vice president of Cisco’s Service Provider Line of Business. “The
Globix relationship with Cisco will enable Globix customers
to be confident that their service provider will deliver a high level
of network interoperability and performance, as well as new, advanced,
and differentiated services.”
In the Cisco Powered Network Program, Globix will provide
services based predominantly on Cisco equipment and software. The
Globix participation in the program – including use of the
Cisco Powered Network logo to brand its services and marketing support
materials – demonstrates the ability of Globix to provide innovative
services and industry-leading technology solutions.
