Pangaea Networks launches dedicated 10 Gigabit Ethernet ring service in New York City
MARCH 16, 2010 -- Pangaea Networks, a niche provider of carrier class Ethernet local loop services in the New York City and New Jersey markets, announced the launch of their PANMetro dedicated 10 Gigabit Ethernet ring service in Manhattan. With the Multi-Gig service platform, carriers and end-users can deploy multiple Ethernet circuits with capacities greater than 1 Gigabit Ethernet on a single port, over their own private, dedicated, Layer 2, 10 Gigabit Ethernet wireline infrastructure.
"Scalability and portability are the two main drivers behind the PANMetro™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet platform," says Kevin Black, vice president of business development at Pangaea Networks. "Service providers and end-users with high capacity IP and data traffic require an Ethernet platform that can scale beyond Gigabit Ethernet, with the ability to easily load balance traffic between data centers and Meet Me Rooms."
"By co-locating in just one site, PANMetro 10 Gigabit Ethernet users can now access hundreds of customers and other service providers over their own private, diversely routed, protected 10 Gigabit Ethernet ring, without the need for additional rack space and power within those other facilities."
Pangaea Networks plans to expand the 10 Gigabit Ethernet ring service to include 4 primary data centers in
PANMetro Ethernet service enables nearly any end-customer the ability to leverage Ethernet technology to obtain dedicated local access. In addition to providing fiber based, high capacity, carrier grade metro Ethernet solutions, Pangaea Networks converts legacy network connections, such as TDM and SONET to Ethernet over a wide area, stretching from
