Electric Lightwave has deployed optical equipment to deliver 200G wavelengths on a 225-mile fiber route between Hillsboro, Ore. and Seattle. This technology enables Electric Lightwave to double WAN connectivity speeds and efficiently deliver on rapidly increasing bandwidth demands.
Electric Lightwave has strategically invested in its network assets by doubling the number of network long-haul routes, offering virtually unlimited bandwidth through its Spectrum solution and expanding Wavelength Services through 10G and 100G Express Routes as demand for high bandwidth access continues to increase.
“We continue to enhance the strengths of our network by deploying advanced technologies throughout our architecture to meet the exponential growth in bandwidth demand,” said Dan Stoll, president of Electric Lightwave. “Enabling our first customer with 200G capabilities on one of our many unique long haul routes is another example of how we deliver solutions that effectively combine the strength of our network with innovative technologies to effectively address our customers’ needs for low latency, high bandwidth service. Deploying Ciena’s 200G solution is helping us meet constantly changing bandwidth requirements driven by increasing volumes of digital content. We are already seeing significant demand from existing and new customers along our routes.”
