(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Inteliquent (Nasdaq: IQNT), a leading provider of global interconnection and interoperability solutions, announces today the formal rebranding of Neutral Tandem and Tinet, as Inteliquent. The company’s shares will start trading under its new name and stock ticker symbol, “IQNT,” effective as of market open today, February 7, 2012.

“Our new brand is an important step in the evolution of our company and signifies a commitment to both our customers and our investors to deliver on our strategic vision,” states Edward Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Inteliquent.  “The name, ’Inteliquent’ scales with our expanded product set, and aligns well with our positioning as a global multi-services company that provides intelligent solutions to complex problems in the industry.”

“The rebranding comes at a time when our customers’ network needs are growing more complicated.  To address this, we are providing intelligent solutions to solve these challenges -– whether in voice, IP transit, Ethernet or hosted services,” continues Surendra Saboo, President and Chief Operating Officer of Inteliquent.  “At Inteliquent, we are building upon the breadth and depth of our highly interconnected network, and developing solutions to solve tomorrow’s interoperability issues.”
