Global Crossing is adding capacity on both its North American terrestrial network and its Atlantic Crossing 1 (AC-1) subsea network.

Global Crossing’s North America terrestrial network comprises more than 17,000 route miles of lit fiber. The company is adding incremental capacity on strategic routes to its existing footprint, as well as two new routes: Seattle to Sacramento and Indianapolis to Atlanta. The upgrade will provide customers with lower latency routes, diversity options, and 10Gbps and 10GigE wavelengths.  The new capacity is scheduled to be ready for service by June 30, 2010.
 
During the first half of 2009, Global Crossing added transport capacity to its AC-1 Northern and Southern routes to enhance connectivity between North America and Europe. Now, Global Crossing is adding additional capacity on AC-1 South, which connects Brookhaven, New York, to the United Kingdom via a self-healing ring using Wavelength Division Multiplexing technology.
