ATLANTA -- Internap Network Services Corporation (AMEX: IIP), a leading provider of performance-based routing solutions over the Internet, today announced the development of its next generation model of the Internap(R) Flow Control Platform(TM) (FCP) solution. The addition to the company's family of premise-based route control products interoperates with standard 10 Gigabit hardware and is scalable to support the growing bandwidth requirements of Web-centric businesses. The new appliance maintains the benefits of the existing FCP product line, including intelligent load balancing to optimize bandwidth costs and performance, as well as improved network visibility and control. The 10 Gigabit solution will be available for shipping in June 2006.

The FCP 10 Gigabit solution intelligently routes traffic across multiple Internet Service Provider (ISP) connections to conform to user-defined performance and cost policies, allowing customers to leverage the benefits of multi-homing. Like previously released models, the new FCP 10 Gigabit is one of the industry's only appliances with the ability to implement route changes in real-time by continuously monitoring end-to-end network performance.

"Over the last year, we've witnessed exponential growth in the amount of bandwidth required by many enterprises, particularly in the e-commerce arena," said Mark Fabbi, vice president distinguished analyst, Gartner. "To minimize the burden of dedicating additional staff to manage and maintain hardware, a 10 Gigabit solution has the ability to offer significant benefits- from both a cost and network visibility perspective."
