SkySwitch Announces Network Expansion


Turn-up of Las Vegas Geo-Node Increases Network Capacity By More Than Twenty-Five Percent

SkySwitch, provider of the ultimate white label platform for hosted telecom resellers, announced a new West Coast point-of-presence today with the availability of their new Las Vegas geo-node. This is the fourth geo-node in the SkySwitch network, adding to the current locations in New York, Dallas, and Minnesota. This node increases network capacity by more than twenty-five percent and provides added flexibility in managing network load.

“While other white label providers are struggling with capacity and reliability issues, this expansion shows that SkySwitch is able to continue meeting the demands of its fast growing base of users,” said Eric Hernaez, Founder and President of SkySwitch.

SkySwitch provides service from geographically diverse locations in order to maximize system resiliency. The new geo-node was introduced without interruption to ongoing operations because the system was designed to expand on the fly. New geo-nodes can be joined to the network, and new server resources can be added to any geo-node, in a way that’s transparent to end users.

In addition to easing network growth, this system architecture has allowed SkySwitch to maintain industry-leading uptime. Unlike other high-availability redundancy schemes, that rely on a primary and failover system, the SkySwitch system is Always Available. That means that SkySwitch provides identical service across multiple nodes in real-time. With seamless and transparent failover between nodes, service disruptions are avoided because customer connections can be automatically transferred to any nodes available in the event of trouble.

SkySwitch chose to deploy the new geo-node at The Lone Mountain Data Center, operated by viawest. The data center, a best-in-class, carrier-neutral facility that received Tier 3 certification by the Uptime Institute, allows SkySwitch to deliver the reliability and stability demanded by its resellers.

“SkySwitch is well positioned to continue the triple-digit growth we have seen in the past twelve months,” concluded Hernaez. “The geographic diversity and ease with which we can increase capacity help to ensure our customers that they do not have to worry about the type of growth related problems that have ensnared other providers in this industry.”
