Sidera Networks launches E-Connect Hub Service

Sidera Networks launched, in several major metropolitan locations, E-Connect Hubs that use the External Network-to-Network Interface (ENNI), a standards-based Ethernet interconnection that enables disparate carrier networks to connect to Sidera's fiber-based network to ensure high-quality services.

Sidera's E-Connect Hubs are strategically located, starting with 10 initial access points, including Boston, Chicago, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Toronto, and Washington, D.C. The new E-Connect Hub Service provides a method for domestic and international carriers to expand their reach leveraging Sidera's network. Sidera plans to add additional access points throughout the year.

Sidera Networks' ENNI interconnection is MEF 26-compliant and available in 1 GbE and 10 GbE ports. The MEF 26 ENNI standard defines interface and service attributes necessary for multiple providers to deliver Carrier Ethernet services on a global basis. “By delivering services through ENNI, Sidera Networks is able to preserve and enhance the overall protection, priority, and quality of service parameters of each frame being passed across the network,” reveals a representative.

"Our E-Connect Hubs allow service providers to streamline interconnect operations, cost-effectively deploy new services, quickly reach new markets, and lower the overall costs and time spent managing and turning up services," says Mike Sicoli, CEO, Sidera Networks. "ENNI is more than just a technical specification; it has become the driver for a new global wholesale Ethernet market."

Sidera offers dedicated point-to-point Ethernet, as well as switched point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint Layer 2 Ethernet Service.
