Neutral Tandem, Inc. Announces Ethernet EXchange Charter Customer Participants

CHICAGO, July 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neutral Tandem, Inc. (Nasdaq:TNDM), a leading provider of tandem interconnection services, today announced the participation of ten different strategic service providers in its Ethernet eXchange Charter Customer Program. Participants include: RCN Metro Optical Networks, a division of RCN Corporation (Nasdaq:RCNI), Tinet, PAETEC (Nasdaq:PAET), Deltacom (OTCBB:ITCD), US Signal, Mosaic NetworX, Wilshire Connection, and ION Holding Co

Ethernet eXchange:

Neutral Tandem's Ethernet eXchange provides Ethernet service providers with a more efficient and simplified method of interconnecting on a one-to-many basis. Utilizing Neutral Tandem's Ethernet eXchange service solves the complex technical and business challenges traditionally tied to interconnecting to multiple service providers on a one-on-one basis. In addition, Ethernet service providers can virtually connect to multiple access providers in several markets, through a single connection to the Ethernet eXchange. 

Charter Program

The Charter Member Program is built upon the principle of a collaborative and interactive Product Development process that engages customers from requirements formulation through service delivery. "By assembling a group of market-leading experts from well-respected Ethernet service providers and incorporating their feedback on an ongoing basis, we believe that our Ethernet eXchange will offer innovative functionality that addresses our customers' needs and priorities," said Surendra Saboo, Chief Operating Officer of Neutral Tandem, Inc.  

Felipe Alvarez, President of RCN Metro, said, "The unique way Neutral Tandem has interconnected its Exchanges in major markets gives us the ability to easily establish Ethernet connections to high demand locations outside our existing footprint."

"Tinet is honored to be part of Neutral Tandem's Ethernet eXchange," stated Paolo Susnik, CEO of Tinet. "Neutral Tandem's efficient one-on-to-many interconnections will help us further extend our network into more US markets; this is a true value-add to the global carrier community and ultimately the end-users."
