Internap Upgrades P-NAP

Internap will upgrade eleven of its Private Network Access Point (P-NAP)

ATLANTA -- Internap Network Services Corporation (AMEX:IIP), a leading provider of performance-based routing solutions over the Internet, today announced that it will upgrade eleven of its Private Network Access Point (P-NAP) locations to address customer's growing capacity needs in key markets. In addition to the recent completion of its first 10 Gigabit (10G) based P-NAP? re-architecture in San Jose, additional upgrades are targeted in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC.

A key market differentiator, the Internap? P-NAP infrastructure is central to its ability to offer reliable connectivity across the entire Internet, as opposed to just one network. Inside each P-NAP resides the company's proprietary route control software, which continuously monitors and redirects customer traffic across up to eight major backbones to optimize performance. As a result, Internap is able to offer 100% uptime and overcome various problems that may halt or degrade the performance of real-time Internet applications.

"Building upon our market-leading IP network with speed and flawless execution is a vital step in meeting growing customer demands," said James P. DeBlasio, chief executive officer, Internap. "We believe that now is the time to improve our infrastructure while positioning Internap to reach a new level of performance and maximize our return in multiple markets."
