(Gawkwire) – ColoGuard, the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of colocation services and solutions for Internet telephony providers, announced today that it will be exhibiting at the 2012 International Telecoms Week conference in Chicago.
ColoGuard representatives will be on hand (Exhibit Booth 1514, Purple Level, East Tower) to meet with VoIP service providers and explain the benefits of its 15,000-square-foot data center, which features fast, direct connections to cities around the world and has become well-known for its ability to deliver crystal-clear calls anywhere on the planet.
Last year, ColoGuard made its debut at ITW in Washington, DC after it and GalaxyVisions became separate companies. Previously, GalaxyVisions offered both dedicated hosting and colocation solutions.
"We are looking forward to returning to the conference where we got started – and be able to tell the continuing story of ColoGuard. ITW helped ColoGuard get off to a great start, and we look forward to meeting even more providers who are interested in the VoIP-optimized data center," said ColoGuard Vice President Ruben Magurdumov.
Telephone service delivered over the Internet is very sensitive to latency and inefficient network routing. GalaxyVisions’ network routes can reach most foreign countries in under 10 hops. That’s well below the 300ms latency threshold for crystal-clear VoIP conversations. ColoGuard also offers separate network segments provisioned specifically for VoIP clients.
In addition to fast connection and blazing bandwidth, CologGuard’s Brooklyn, New York data center also features dedicated power lines from multiple providers as well as high-capacity generators, each with a 72-hour fuel supply. Among the security features are biometric scanners with pass-card access, mantraps at the main entry, fully archived video surveillance and 24/7/365 onsite monitoring and support.
Shortly after last year’s conference, ColoGuard announced a partnership with VoIP services provider IPsmarx Technology for billing and switching solutions. IPsmarx customers now have access to ColoGuard’s data center – and to fast connections around the world.
