360networks expands in Texas


360networks, a facilities-based wholesale provider of
telecommunication services, announced availability of a new 640 mile route
between Dallas and El Paso capable of supporting up to 100G line rates.


This expansion extends the company’s footprint in support
of the region’s telecommunications,
cable, content and cloud services providers’ growing need for capacity and
connectivity for their end users.  


These customers can now access 360networks’s more than
18,000 route miles to over 60 tier 1 to 4 markets across 22 states and British
Columbia.  The expansion also creates a highly redundant path for the
Dallas market, as well as throughout Texas, Colorado and New Mexico.  


“Adding the Dallas to El Paso route is a natural
progression of our strategy to take customers deeper into the geographic areas
we serve while increasing value through redundancy and scalability,” said
Brady Adams, chief technology officer for 360networks.


“Look for 360networks to continue to drive value for
our customers by expanding our network and services,” Adams added.


For this expansion 360networks installed Alcatel-Lucent’s 1830 Photonic Service
Switch (PSS) technology enabling Waves, IP, Ethernet, and TDM access in
Abilene, Ft. Worth, and Midland.  


“Our next-generation optical technology is part of a
converged backbone solution, which means that 360networks can intelligently manage
traffic and support their customer’s new bandwidth-hungry applications, such as
live-streaming high-definition video, over a fully redundant network,”
said Robert Vrij, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s Americas region.
