Junction Networks and FORTRESS ITX launch Enterprise VoIP Peering Point in Northern New Jersey.
August 6, 2004 (New Jersey): VoIP Peering Point will extend reliability of existing and future VoIP infrastructures while lowering overall total cost of ownership of VoIP Networks.

Junction Networks and FORTRESS ITX today announced a partnership to establish the first peering point in Northern New Jersey to exclusively support Voice over IP traffic at the FORTRESS ITX facility in Clifton, NJ. Leading industry experts predict VoIP penetration at 70% of all businesses by 2008. As businesses develop their VoIP capabilities, the use of peering points will allow them to connect directly to their partners and customers to ensure the most direct and reliable connection for voice traffic.

“As enterprises deploy VoIP, they increasingly are looking for ways to better control their own voice traffic rather than simply hand it over to a carrier in a single co-location facility” said Mike Oeth, CEO of Junction Networks. “This peering point will allow enterprises to connect with each other to extend the reach of their existing VoIP networks.”

Further, enterprises connected to the VoIP Peering Point benefit from an additional level of redundancy in the case of network failure. “By peering at a facility like FORTRESS ITX, it ensures the Peering Point will run in a superior co-location facility with 100% power availability and 100% network connectivity”, stated Mr. Robert E. Ellis III, Executive Vice President of FORTRESS ITX.
