RCN Metro has teamed with leading Ethernet Exchange Carriers including CENX, Equinix (EQIX), and Neutral Tandem (TNDM) to simplify the delivery of Ethernet services across networks.
RCN Metro Optical Networks is offering its Ethernet services to local, national, and international service providers via Ethernet Exchange Carriers in New York City and Chicago at bandwidths from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps. Additional regions will be announced throughout the year.
In order to interconnect with carriers today, one-off interconnection agreements need to be negotiated with each carrier. Since Ethernet service delivery standards are not ubiquitously adhered to, carriers are challenged to interconnect without compromising services quality or support. RCN Metro’s participation in Ethernet exchanges represents the company’s commitment to expanding the distribution of its Ethernet services through these exchanges designed to facilitate these types of interconnections.
