Level 3 Communications announced that it has signed
multi-year agreements with Cox Communications to deliver high-speed IP and
transport services, and is also expanding the capabilities made available
through Level 3’s wholesale partner program that enable Cox to use and to
resell Level 3’s services.
Cox will also purchase additional dark fiber to expand
its backbone and support the growth of its broadband network.
The comprehensive agreements into which Level 3 and Cox
are entering build upon and strengthen the extensive relationships
between the two companies lasting over ten years. The companies have also
agreed on terms and conditions under which they will exchange IP traffic between
their respective backbone networks.
“The end-user experience continues to be the core of
whether business is won or lost,” said Andrew Crouch, president of Sales
for Level 3.
“By leveraging the investments Level 3 has made in
its network and enterprise services, Cox will be better positioned to deliver a
superior experience to their customers. We are pleased to have expanded our
long-standing business relationship with Cox through this portfolio of
agreements that are consistent with our principles,” Crouch added.
“To ensure the optimal quality of Cox services, we
must regularly expand and enhance our network capacity, capabilities and
reach,” said Jay Rolls, senior vice president of technology, Cox
Communications. “The strategic relationship with Level 3 allows us to
bolster our network and more effectively deliver voice, video and data products
to homes and businesses.”
