In order to meet the growing demand for more flexible options in wavelength services capacity, Global Crossing has upgraded the terrestrial capacity of its wavelength service to 40 Gbps.
The capacity upgrade is being implemented on terrestrial routes in North America, Europe and the U.K. to address the increasing market demand for bandwidth-intensive applications, such as telepresence, business continuity, data center virtualization, video on demand, video surveillance and Voice over Internet Protocol. Global Crossing’s new service is designed to deliver 40 Gbps services in both core and edge sites.
Wavelength services are ideal for large enterprises, as well as Internet service providers, international and domestic carriers, and competitive local exchange carriers that require high-speed, unprotected, point-to-point capacity. Global Crossing’s wavelength service can be used to complete a SONET/SDH ring, gain access to a market where capacity requirements do not justify a dark fiber investment, or provide a temporary solution while dark fiber routes are planned and constructed.
