GE ACCESS SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH GLOBIX CORPORATION
Web Site Co-Location and Dedicated Internet Access Boost Service Offerings
BOULDER, Colo., March 20, 2000 — 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.”
Globix Co-Location and Dedicated Access services can now be offered to GE Access resellers’
customers. 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. Globix SuperPOP Internet
Data Centers are built to n+1 redundancy for superior reliability and fault-tolerance, and
are fully staffed and monitored 24 x 7 x 365. Servers in the Globix Internet Data Centers
are connected to the company’s high-performance, fault-tolerant fiber-optic ATM switched
network. A 6,500 mile, fiber-based OC-3 (155 Mbs) Internet backbone and more than 550 peering
connections bring Globix customers fast and reliable access to the Internet.
