NEW YORK CITY-IntelliSpace, a provider of managed optical Ethernet IP networks that has wired more than 100 million sf of commercial real estate, will deploy the edgeMedia service of Edgix, based here, in more than 30 metropolitan points of presence throughout its broadband network in the US and Europe. A network caching service, edgeMedia delivers geographically relevant Web content to the edge nodes of an access provider’s network.

This service guarantees that it will offload a minimum of 30% of an ISP’s Web traffic to the Edgix network, or else the service provider is not charged. According to Edgix, evaluations of edgeMedia have shown that average download speeds were increased by 438% compared to standard Internet performance. It also recorded 84% fewer network errors, virtually eliminating messages such as “page time out” and “gateway time out.”

By using broadband satellite multicast, edgeMedia bypasses the congested terrestrial Internet to deliver content to millions of users worldwide simultaneously. And its Cache Advisor software allows local servers to respond to customer demands in real time, assuring the delivery of content that is appropriate and popular.

IntelliSpace, headquartered here, has more than more than 1,000 customers and expects to extend its services to over 20 US cities by the end of the year.
