Mammoth and AKN Synch Up North American ConnectivityToday from the ITEXPO West 2010 in Los Angeles, Mammoth Networks and AKN announced a partnership through which they would establish a private connection between their two networks, extending their respective footprints across North America.
For Mammoth, the leading wholesale facilities-based aggregator of fiber and data circuits in the Western United States, this expanded reach will provide access for its customers to AKNâ€™s Canadian Layer 2 DSL and T1 services. For AKN, access to Mammoth empowers its enterprise and service providers with of a single point of contact for transferring data across North America.
Mammoth Networks Founder & CEO, Brian Worthen, noted that, â€œWe are excited to partner with AKN, which is recognized throughout Canada as the leader in optimizing WAN networks. Also, with todayâ€™s workforce becoming increasingly remote, coupled with an increasing universal demand for cloud computing applications and services, ensuring the highest level network experience is a key differentiator for organizations.â€
â€œIn addition to reducing costs associated with running a network and increasing user productivity, this relationship enables us to yet again overcome geographical borders and speed application and network performance over long distances,â€ continued Mr. Worthen.
â€œThrough our partnership with Mammoth, we can extend our reach and ability to deliver seamless Private Wide Area Network solutions throughout North America, and maintain our carrier agnostic approach in providing the most diverse, cost-effective data communications options available,â€ said Monica Rok, AKN President.
Earlier this year, Mammoth announced it has passed 21,000 DSLs on its network and now supports more than 160 Service Providers across the United States.
As a facilities-based aggregator of multiple data services onto one platform, the Company combines Qwest DSL with T1s, DS3, OCn and GigE from multiple carriers to serve as a one-stop shop for full-service network connectivity and outsourcing.
