BURLINGTON, Mass. –- Quarry Technologies, the performance leading supplier of carrier-class security service routers, today announced that StraitShot Communications plans to deploy its iQ4000® Security Service Routers network-wide. StraitShot, a Bellevue-Washington-based service provider developing a lower cost, full-featured alternative to Frame Relay and traditional Virtual Private Networks (VPN), selected the Quarry iQ4000 for its cost-effective combination of high-performance virtual routing, extensive management capabilities and security services for VPNs. They plan to begin rolling out the Quarry Security Service Router this month in Sunnyvale, California and plan to continue to turn up service in five additional markets within the next 18 months.

StraitShot plans to deploy the Quarry platforms to create a new model for networking that physically spans existing access networks, such as Allegiance Telecom, New Edge Networks and other carriers, to deliver secure Consolidated Private Networking. Using its own proprietary architecture, the company is connecting regional points-of-presence (POPs) through private backbones to provide corporate networking services with the performance and security advantages of frame relay, but at prices comparable to or below the cost of VPNs.

“We are leading a private networking revolution and needed technology that combined the best of security, management, quality of service, routing and remote access capabilities,” said StraitShot CEO Scott Painter. “Quarry’s iQ4000 is a strategic part of our network and enables us to create the first viable delivery method for emerging business services such Voice-over-IP, Video-on-Demand and other enterprise applications.”
