LayerOne, Inc., a global provider of layer-one optical transport exchanges and connectivity services, announced that EPIK Communications signed a national service agreement that will enable the carrier's carrier to interconnect with local and long haul carriers to exchange traffic. EPIK will connect its fiber optic network to LayerOne's Miami NEXUS Optical Distribution Exchange where it will have access to a ready pool of potential buyers for its dark fiber and wholesale services. EPIK has the option to extend its network presence into other LayerOne Exchanges as they become available.
The NEXUS Exchange expedites service turn-up by offering an eminently practical solution for network interconnection. LayerOne gives service providers access to a system of neutral exchange points where they can connect with multiple transport partners. LayerOne also enables end-customers to connect with bandwidth providers and make customer-to-customer connections. EPIK Communications joins other service providers who have partnered with LayerOne in an effort to interconnect their optical networks.
