Pangaea Networks, Mobilitie partner on NYC metro Ethernet services

OCTOBER 6, 2008 -- Pangaea's Metro Ethernet services, overlaid on Mobilitie's dark fiber footprint, will introduce a bandwidth service that is diverse, secure, and highly available, say representatives for the companies.Â

OCTOBER 6, 2008 -- Pangaea Networks, a niche provider of carrier-class metro Ethernet transport services in the NY/NJ market, and Mobilitie, owner and lessor of capital assets and infrastructure to global telecommunications companies, have entered into a strategic relationship for services in Manhattan. 
 
Under the relationship, Mobilitie will provide dark fiber to Pangaea, creating a cost-effective alternative transport throughout the New York Metro market. Pangaea's Metro Ethernet services, overlaid on Mobilitie's dark fiber footprint, will introduce a bandwidth service that is diverse, secure, and highly available, say representatives for the companies. Mobilitie says its dark fiber network offers virtually unlimited capacity, while Pangaea's PANMetro Ethernet transport services are installed within an average of 45 calendar days and are backed by Pangaea's service level agreements (SLAs). 
 
"This is an ideal partnership for Mobilitie," contends Greg Weiner, vice president of strategy and operations at Mobilitie. "Our ability to construct a diverse, dark fiber network interconnecting a large number of Class A, high-tenant-count buildings is part of Mobilitie's strategy of building the most extensive fiber network in Manhattan. Pangaea's ability to light this fiber using their PANMetro Ethernet services gives end-users and network operators an easy-to-access solution to meet their companies' growing communications requirements," he says.
 
"Pangaea offers custom Layer 1 and Layer 2 Metro Ethernet solutions in a non-shared environment," adds Kevin Rocks, executive vice president of Pangaea Networks. "Mobilitie's diverse dark fiber network is an exceptional platform. Pangaea will utilize Mobilitie's infrastructure to facilitate our continued expansion throughout New York City. Both carrier and enterprise customers can now benefit from Pangaea's quality of service for the most latency sensitive Ethernet applications to these high-profile Manhattan locations."
