RCN Business has announced the immediate availability of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) service to each of its markets, including Boston; Chicago; Philadelphia (Delaware County); Lehigh Valley, PA; Washington DC; and New York City.

WDM simultaneously transmits a number of signals into a single fiber using different wavelengths. RCN's service is designed to provide up to 100 Gbps between locations and data centers. The service is customizable, and business services customers can create their own path for data.

"With RCN's wavelength division multiplexing, our customers control the network by choosing the specific route to create the shortest path for data to travel, thereby minimizing latency and increasing the security of data," said Patrick Knorr, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, RCN Business. "RCN is dedicated to its customers' success, and to succeed, they need more bandwidth. This offering allows our customers to maximize their growth with technology on the forefront of the industry and stop worrying about scalability and downtime. Traditional bandwidth plans simply do not provide these opportunities."

RCN Business received the Metro Ethernet Forum's Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 certification in the E-Line, E-LAN and E-Access categories in 2014.
