Cable&Wireless announces roadmap for Ethernet services in Americas

Cable&Wireless Worldwide announced its roadmap to
extend its portfolio of global Ethernet services for multinational enterprises
and carrier customers based in the Americas.

The first Ethernet service to be launched by
Cable&Wireless Worldwide will be the International Ethernet
Private Line (IEPL). This service will deliver reliable, high-speed, point-to-point
Ethernet connectivity and will be launched in October 2011.

This service supports the algorithmic trading needs of
the world’s largest investment banks and financial institutions. The IEPL
service offers high-speed and secure Ethernet connections between global
financial trading exchanges.

The company also announces plans to launch Ethernet
Wireline (EWL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) services in the last
quarter of 2011.

These virtual private wire services run over the
company’s global, highly available, packet-based MPLS network and deliver
flexible connectivity options that allow customers to run critical
bandwidth-hungry applications such as voice and video applications with
optimised Quality of Service.

The company has expanded its next-generation
Multi-Service Platform (MSP) to the Americas. Already available in Asia
Pacific, Europe, India, the Middle East, and the United Kingdom, the MSP now
supports the delivery of multiple services over a single global network, which
helps reduce costs for the customers.

In addition, it provides the company with the flexibility
to implement new services with minimal disruption and scale bandwidth across
the network to deliver what customers need as their demand grows.

We see many customers expanding into the burgeoning
Asian and EMEA markets. The use of more bandwidth-hungry applications such as
voice and video across their data networks is driving increased demand for
Ethernet solutions as they are flexible, reliable and cost-effective,” said
Andrew Morawski, managing director Americas, Cable&Wireless Worldwide.

Ethernet has always been the backbone of local area
networks; now customers can take advantage of Cable&Wireless Worldwide’s
investments and in-country carrier relationships to connect their global sites,
allowing them to easily align their communication networks to meet their
specific business demands.
