Liberty Lake-based TierPoint recently announced it's finished a major backbone upgrade. For businesses and major enterprises, this amounts to fairly major news. The upgrade involves full 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections all across the company's network
The privately held data operations center and hosting company upgraded both the Liberty Lake and Seattle locations, said Craig Brandvold, TierPoint's marketing manager.
TierPoint has six 10Gbps carrier links that carry Internet in and out of the Liberty Lake site, plus two 10Gbps links that connect that location with its Seattle center.
Said Dan Seliger, the company's chief technology officer: “Those who get their Internet service from us will see a faster connection, very low latency, and even more reliable service, and those who host with us will also find more bandwidth available at very attractive rates.”
