Neutral Tandem Launches Eight Additional Ethernet Exchange Sites Ahead Of Schedule

CHICAGO, Oct. 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neutral Tandem, Inc. (Nasdaq:TNDM), a leading provider of interconnection services, announced today that it has launched eight additional Ethernet Exchange Points of Presence (PoPs), bringing all 14 of its previously announced Ethernet Exchanges to market. Following the launch of the company's initial six Ethernet Exchanges in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York, the company has now completed, ahead of schedule, the deployment of eight additional markets including Denver, Detroit, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. 

The launch of Neutral Tandem's Ethernet Exchange in additional markets enables service providers to interconnect to Neutral Tandem in locations such as Boston, Denver, Houston, Miami, Philadelphia and Seattle. As a result, Neutral Tandem now offers its Ethernet Exchange service in more U.S. markets than any other Exchange operator. In addition, the recently completed Tinet acquisition bolsters the Ethernet Exchange addressable PoPs from 14 in the US to 99 worldwide, further complemented by Tinet's ENNIs that provide connectivity to carriers in hard-to-reach countries.

"We are proud to be the first to offer Ethernet Exchange services in 14 locations," said Surendra Saboo, President and COO of Neutral Tandem. "The scalability and cost efficiency of an Ethernet Exchange is accentuated with Neutral Tandem's networked approach, where each exchange is interconnected with all of the other exchanges; thereby increasing the availability of service providers that can be connected to each other."

"Ethernet Exchanges provide a common platform for Ethernet service providers to interconnect their networks and alleviate the formulation of lengthy ENNI agreements with each carrier they wish to connect to," said Roopashree Honnachari, Sr. Industry Analyst, Business Communication Services, Frost and Sullivan. "Neutral Tandem's 14 markets bring increased accessibility to its Ethernet Exchange service. That, combined with their networked approach creates a unique value proposition in the marketplace."
