Deal enables bold entry to the ISP market by Alpha Red
COSTA MESA, Calif. – Feb. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — BandCon today announced that it has been selected by Alpha Red, Inc., a dedicated server hosting provider and Internet service provider headquartered in Houston, Texas, to facilitate the company’s peering initiative. Under the terms of the multiple-year agreement, BandCon has installed and will maintain the connectivity of Alpha Red’s private national backbone that connects all the major metropolitan areas of the United States.
The deal positions Alpha Red as a competitive player in the Internet transit market. The company has traditionally specialized in server and hosting management services. With the private backbone in place, Alpha Red will leverage over its own 125 Gbps of outgoing usage to quickly develop peering relationships and backbone capacity.
