Redundancy, scalability and financial stability make NTT/VERIO solution of choice for company's needs

Long Island, NY and Englewood, CO, Sept. 17, 2002 - Ticker Technologies Inc. (, a premier provider of applications for integrating market-related content into Internet, Intranet and Extranet sites, today announced it has selected NTT/VERIO network services and hosting solutions to help power its business.

Ticker Technologies Inc. (TTI) has seen server infrastructure and bandwidth needs grow by more than 100 percent in 2002, requiring a long-term partner that could best meet the company's needs for growth and expansion. TTI utilizes the NTT/VERIO data center facility in Manhattan, New York, which is readily accessible from TTI's Long Island offices.

Gregory Leib, TTI's chairman stated, "We were impressed by Verio's attention to full redundancy across the board. Internet connectivity is comprised of triple-redundant connections to the NTT/VERIO Global IP Network and we've even got redundant hand-offs to our cabinet. In addition, their data center provides power backup via battery-powered UPS as well as diesel generators."

Each hand-off is burstable to handle TTI's bandwidth needs well into the future. Daniel Pedisich, vice president of Infrastructure Management at TTI, stated, "One of our main goals here was to make sure our site and our connectivity has consistent, reliable uptime in order for us to best serve our customers. With the NTT/VERIO services, we're confident that we will achieve that critical business goal on an ongoing basis."

"The immediate nature of delivering market-related content meant Ticker Technologies required a solution with the infrastructure, services and redundancy that would ensure first-quality delivery of their services," said Isabel Ehringer, president of the Enterprise Hosting business unit. "We're pleased that the NTT/VERIO services are able to meet not only Ticker Technologies needs today, but their business needs tomorrow as the company continues its growth and expansion."
