Telseon introduces wavelength bandwidth mobility service

Sept. 28, 2001--Telseon, a metropolitan optical network provider, announced the availability of what the company claims is the industry's first flexible bandwidth OC-12 service allowing businesses to move both end points of a high-capacity bandwidth connection within any of Telseon's national metro networks.

Telseon, a metropolitan optical network provider, announced the availability of what the company claims is the industry's first flexible bandwidth OC-12 (622 Mbps) service allowing businesses to move both end points of a high-capacity bandwidth connection within any of Telseon's national metro networks. OC-12 with Bandwidth Mobility frees businesses from the long-term fixed agreements of incumbent OC-12 services, increasing response times to changing market conditions and reducing excess capital expenditures.

OC-12 with Bandwidth Mobility is designed for carriers, service providers and large enterprises currently in need of OC-12 wavelength connections between any two Telseon network locations within a metro. If bandwidth demands shift, the service can be relocated between any two network locations within the same metro or both end points moved entirely to another Telseon-enabled metro.

Traditional SONET-based service providers often require customers to agree to multi-year fixed bandwidth agreements. If traffic priority changes among locations, businesses must either keep unwanted connections or pay substantial contract exit penalties and purchase additional connection, resulting in reduced network efficiency, lost productivity, and increased capital costs.

OC-12 with Bandwidth Mobility Service benefits:

The OC-12 service enables businesses to bypass incumbent networks to gain more control of their network management. Additional benefits include:

* Quick Upgrades: Seven-day bandwidth scalability guarantee from existing Telseon OC-12 connection to an OC-48 (2.5 Gbps) connection.

* Fast Time to Market: Reduce standard legacy network provisioning periods from 90 to 120 days to 30 to 45 days.

* Eliminate Risk: Fast deployment and bandwidth mobility reduces risks associated with long-term fixed agreements.

* Reduce Capital Expenditure: Telseon provides equipment between customer interfaces on both end points.

Telseon provides a large metropolitan footprint with service currently available in 16 U.S. metropolitan networks and rapidly being deployed throughout 85 network locations. The company also claims carrier neutrality, offering a horizontal approach focused on core data transport solutions that enable Telseon to partner with multiple partners to offer greater reach and avoid channel conflict.

OC-12 with Bandwidth Mobility expands the Telseon Metro Wave Service currently offering OC-48 and OC-192 (10 Gbps) services. The service is now available at Telseon network locations in 16 of Telseon's 20 metros including: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Orlando, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, Tampa and Washington D.C.
