CAMBRIDGE, MA, USA – December 2, 2013 – The Open-IX Association (OIX), a neutral, non-profit industry association formed to promote better standards for data center Interconnection and Internet Exchanges in North America, announce the appointment of iMiller Public Relations (iMPR), a leading international marketing and public relations firm serving the telecommunications and technology industries, as its agency of record. iMPR has been selected by OIX to develop and execute an integrated marketing communications program encompassing corporate positioning, messaging and organizational branding as well as social media, analyst relations and thought leadership outreach. iMPR will advise OIX on its communications strategy, develop marketing collateral, evaluate current marketing processes, and prepare a framework for media outreach and response.
“iMPR is proud to be the association’s strategic partner and to serve as an extension of the OIX team,” says Ilissa Miller, CEO of iMiller Public Relations. “It is an honor to help spread the positive message and evolve the marketing efforts of a visionary association such as OIX, whose ultimate goal of increasing competition and reliability of inter-connections will benefit the industry’s service providers, businesses and consumers alike.”
“We chose to work with iMPR because of the team’s in-depth expertise in the Internet and telecommunications arenas, as well as their extensive market knowledge and experience gained from working firsthand with the very providers and consumers we aim to serve,” adds Martin Hannigan, co-founder and Treasurer of Open-IX Association. “Leveraging iMPR’s strategic capabilities, we are confident that the firm can greatly advance our presence and message of lowering costs, expanding power solutions and increasing reliability for bandwidth consumers in the marketplace.”
OIX is a non-profit and neutral community comprised of volunteers from the Internet community with the common goal of creating fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory standards for Internet connectivity, resiliency, interconnect security and cost. These beneficial industry standards are divided into sub-committees, including IXP, Data Center, and Membership. OIX is seeking to help unify a highly fragmented industry and change the way networks connect with one another in the North America by creating a new network of member-governed Internet exchange points (IXPs) housed in multiple neutral data center facilities that allow participants to interact and exchange content without the usual fiscal burden of commercial providers.
