GE Access, the premier value-added technical distributor of complex computing products, services and solutions, today announced it has signed an agreement with Globix Corporation (Nasdaq: GBIX), a leading Internet service provider, to provide Internet services to qualified GE Access resellers. By partnering with Globix, GE Access now offers its resellers secure facilities-based Internet solutions and high-speed dedicated Internet access.
‘GE Access continues to fine tune its very successful e-business solutions strategy. Our partnership with Globix allows us to bring a high level of expertise in advanced Internet-based service and a comprehensive range of Internet solutions to our resellers,’ stated Michael Minard, executive vice president, Enterprise Solutions Group, GE Access. ‘With Globix, GE Access can now provide our resellers with Internet service offerings to complete their e-business solutions.’
Globix will provide GE Access customers with a comprehensive range of Internet solutions including the network infrastructure and Internet expertise to build, maintain and support critical Internet operations and Web sites. Globix enables GE Access customers to address their needs more cost-effectively without having to assemble products and services from different suppliers, Internet service providers and information technology firms.
‘Globix is an ideal solution for resellers who need to provide their customers with fast, reliable Internet connections and high performance co-location. Many resellers will prefer to concentrate on their core competency of application integration, and outsource their connectivity and facilities-based infrastructure services to Globix,’ said Marc Bell, chairman and CEO, Globix. ‘Working with GE Access enables Globix to extend its services to a broader customer base, while providing a solution for resellers who don’t have the infrastructure of state-of-the-art Internet data centers and a global network.’

Co-Location provides customers with tremendous bandwidth, reliability, enhanced security and easy management of their servers in secure, environmentally controlled spaces located in New York City, Santa Clara, California, and London, UK.
