GlobeNet, which provides wholesale data network services in Latin America and North America, has launched a service based on virtual routers.

The virtual routers are located in Miami and New York. Customers can access them via GlobeNet's points of presence (PoPs) in New York and Miami in the United States, as well as Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Bogota, Colombia, and Caracas, Venezuela. The virtualization of routing functions will enable customers to aggregate their international capacity and manage their own connections to peering fabrics. GlobeNet will offer transport services between the PoPs via its submarine network resources (see, for example, "GlobeNet completes submarine cable system extension to Colombia"), as well as basic engineering services, management of peering connections and other NOC services, and proactive network monitoring.

"Carriers and ISPs need to present additional value to their customers in order to stand out in the competitive global telecommunications market," states Erick W. Contag, president and chief operating officer of GlobeNet. "Virtualization enhances any customer network by expanding it to critical global PoPs without having to invest in the deployment of a subsea fiber system or purchase expensive equipment."
