Verizon doubles fiber-optic network capacity in Singapore

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, NASDAQ:VZ) says that a recently completed a fiber-optic network expansion project in Singapore has increased network coverage and doubled capacity for enterprise customers. Located primarily in the northern and western parts of Singapore, the new fiber network was built to provide access to such network facilities as submarine-cable landing stations and data centers.

Teams from Verizon and M1 Ltd, a service provider in Singapore, worked for two years to complete the project. The new fiber-optic ring now extends 160 km (100 miles). Reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) provide both transport and switching on the new infrastructure. The network now provides support for 40-Gbps data rates, with the ability to increase this figure to 100 Gbps in the future.

“Singapore’s geographic location makes the country a strategic gateway between Europe and Asia for our global customers,” said Yali Liu, Verizon executive director of global network planning. “Our expanded network in Singapore is an essential communications platform customers need today and in the future.

“There is no doubt that our customers require massive amounts of bandwidth and capacity for their applications,” Liu added.
