To meet the increasing demand from carriers for higher bandwidth and Ethernet, Windstream Corp. now is offering a carrier switched Ethernet service aimed at carriers with access to Windstream’s mostly rural ILEC footprint through a network interconnect.

Whether bandwidth speeds are being used for the transfer of such high-volume content as video and high-resolution images or for basic business services like email and documents, WindStream says it can customize Carrier Switched Ethernet to meet each carrier customer’s needs.

The service provides wholesale carriers access to 980 exchanges within the Windstream network. With the solution, interconnect ports of 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, and 10 Gbps are available; and end user loops from 3 Mbps to 1 Gbps are supported.?

"To have a competitive advantage in today’s market, carriers must have the ability to provide end-user-to-WAN connectivity to their customers," notes Don Perkins, vice president/Business?Marketing. "Carrier Switched Ethernet will extend the ability for our carriers to reach 90 percent or more of the businesses in Windstream’s ILEC footprint with Ethernet access. This increased reach — coupled with the scalability of Ethernet — will provide our carrier customers with the ability to efficiently and effectively deploy robust WAN solutions to their end-users that would otherwise be difficult to reach."?
