SkySwitch, a provider of a white-label platform for hosted telecom resellers, has added a West Coast point-of-presence (PoP) with a Las Vegas geo-node.
This node increases network capacity by more than 25 percent and provides added flexibility in managing network loads. It is the fourth geo-node in the SkySwitch network, adding to locations in Dallas, Minnesota and New York.
“While other white-label providers are struggling with capacity and reliability issues, this expansion shows that SkySwitch is able to continue meeting the demands of its fast growing base of users,” said Eric Hernaez, founder and president of SkySwitch.
SkySwitch provides service from geographically diverse locations in order to maximize system resiliency; SkySwitch provides identical service across multiple nodes in real-time. With transparent fail-over between nodes, customer connections can be automatically transferred to any nodes available in the event of trouble.
SkySwitch chose to deploy the new geo-node at The Lone Mountain Data Center, operated by viawest. The data center is a carrier-neutral facility that received Tier 3 certification by the Uptime Institute.
“SkySwitch is well positioned to continue the triple-digit growth we have seen in the past 12 months,” concluded Hernaez. “The geographic diversity and ease with which we can increase capacity help to ensure our customers that they do not have to worry about the type of growth-related problems that have ensnared other providers in this industry.”
