Cogent Communications' John Sacco on Telecom Jargon and Community Work

  • Cogent Communications' John Sacco on Telecom Jargon and Community Work
  • July 9, 2015 original podcast date: Cogent was founded in 1999 by David Schafer. The company acquired 13 other companies such as Allied Riser, PSInet and NTT/Verio server division over the next three years, 14 billion in capital for 16 million dollars. It has grown from a couple 100 On-Net buildings to 1500 and points of presence to 800. For those not familiar with the term "On-Net," that means Cogent has fiber in those 1500 buildings.

    Wholesale bandwidth and colocation are two telecommunications' buzz phrases that bring to mind Cogent Communications. John Sacco. wholesale and global accounts manager at Cogent, explains in this audio podcast the definitions of both. 

    Almost 1/3 of telecommunications traffic takes place over Cogent Communications' infrastructure and services. They are actually the most directly peered network in the world. Cogent network is fully optical. They recently have expanded into the Asian area such as Singapore and Tokyo. 

    John Sacco explains what dedicated versus shared Internet access is, upload and download speed, over-subscription and the ordering process. Cogent Communications does not over-subscribe, and it offers only dedicated Internet access. He shares information about different types of wholesale bandwidth including ethernet, DS3, wavelength, and lit and dark fiber optic cable. 

    On a totally different track of talk, we discuss goals in helping our communities. John Sacco participates in Relay for Life and Little League type of activities, but he is most involved in his friend's Stockdale Foundation that helps less fortunate high school graduates who cannot really afford to or do not want to go to college. It targets who want to pursue a technical career. John's friend's daughter passed after a car accident, and to turn such a sad event into something positive, he started the charity program in her honor. 

    Mr. Sacco shares information about www.cogentco.com referral program opportunities such as those of vendor referrals and master agents to round out the interview.
