Sabre Chooses INAP for New Multi-Year IP Services Agreement at INAP’s Dallas Data Center
The leading technology provider to the global travel and tourism industry taps INAP for their Signature Performance IPTM Service
ATLANTA – (May 10, 2017) — Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance data center services including Colocation, Network and Managed Services, and Cloud Services, and Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading global technology provider to the travel and tourism industry, today announced a new IP services agreement at INAP’s Dallas data center.
Due to the critical operations managed by Sabre’s customers, including passenger and guest reservations, revenue management, and flight, network and crew management, their network reliability is essential to meeting the needs and expectations of travelers. Sabre needed a managed solution with diverse, redundant paths to the internet over multiple ISP backbones to reduce the risk of network outages and deliver reliable, high-speed IP service for stable, consistent connectivity. INAP was chosen as the company to best meet those requirements and expectations through their Performance IPTM service.
Performance IPTM offers flexible access alternatives based on proximity, platform and bandwidth needs, including leased lines, Metropolitan Access Networks and data center cross-connects. Other fail-safe network features include end-to-end N+1 design, hot swappable spares, and comprehensive monitoring via two geographically-dispersed network operations centers.
