NEW YORK -- Turin Networks, a leading developer and supplier of multiservice transport platforms for telecommunications carriers, and telx, New York's first and largest core interconnection facility, announced today the addition of two new offerings to the telx suite of network interconnection services, enabled by the telx Brilliant Platform(SM). These expanded capabilities, combining Turin's Traverse(TM) 2000 Multiservice Transport Platform with telx's interconnection expertise and carrier reach, make the process of managing global broadband traffic easier and more affordable for service providers.

First, the telx Brilliant Platform provides international gateway services specifically tailored to international service providers and those wanting to extend their reach globally. This Platform provides seamless translation of a wide range of international synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) interfaces to the North American synchronous optical network (SONET) counterpart, and vice versa. Bi-directional interface conversions supported include Optical Carrier-48 (OC-48) to Synchronous Transfer Mode-16 (STM-16), OC-12 to STM-4, OC-3 to STM-1, and DS3 to E3. Also available as an optional service are bi-directional virtual cross-connecting and mapping of SONET STS-1/Nc framed payloads to SDH VC-3 or VC-4 structures as well as VT1.5/2 to VC-11/12.

Second, the telx Brilliant Platform's Ethernet transport services are ideally suited for service providers and large enterprises requiring carrier-class, IP-centric connectivity for applications such as Ethernet-based private lines, transparent LAN services and Internet access, as well as applications with more stringent latency and QoS requirements such as VoIP and IP Video. Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connections are available up to full wire-speed rates. As a carrier-class offering, the telx Brilliant Platform services are designed to support the highest levels of reliability, manageability and bandwidth efficiency.

"The Brilliant Platform is truly a global multiservice transport and switching platform -- the only one of its kind in the industry," said Hunter Newby, telx's Chief Strategy Officer. "This technology is part of telx's continuing effort to create and provide the highest quality innovations in interconnection technology to drive our customers' business."

"Turin helps industry thought leaders like telx simplify complex transport networks and deliver both new and traditional services more efficiently," said John Webley, president and CEO, Turin Networks. "We are pleased to partner with telx to improve their ability to offer new International Gateway and Ethernet Transport services."
