New Routes in 2013 Meet Need to Stay Ahead of Bandwidth Demand
NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon has expanded 100G technology on its ultra-long-haul network in the U.S. and Europe, adding the technology to more than 4,800 miles of its global IP network during the first half of 2013.
The 100G expansion includes almost 4,500 miles on the Verizon U.S. network, bringing to approximately 21,400 the total number of 100G miles currently deployed on the network. Among the new 100G routes are Seattle to Salt Lake City, Indianapolis to St. Louis, St. Louis to Memphis, Charlotte to Nashville and Cleveland to Detroit.
The company has a goal of deploying an additional 8,700 100G miles in the U.S. by the end of the year.
In Europe, Verizon deployed 100G on an additional 350 miles between Brussels and Frankfurt, bringing to 5,100 the total number of 100G miles in Europe. The company plans to deploy an additional 1,400 miles by the end of this year.
"Not only does Verizon have one of the largest global networks, we have one of the most robust and sophisticated networks with 100G technology deployed on multiple routes in the U.S. and Europe," said Kyle Malady, senior vice president of global network operations and engineering. "As long as our bandwidth demand grows, we'll continue deploying high bit-rate technology that underlies the superior experience that our business and consumer customers expect."
The growing demand for higher bandwidth comes from core backbone capacity needed to stay ahead of such drivers as over-the-top video, cloud services, 4G LTE mobile technology and collaboration services. The 100G technology provides the necessary level of performance combined with the flexibility to meet traffic type demand and enterprise customer requirements.
As with previous 100G deployments, Verizon continues to use Juniper PTX packet transport routers and the Ciena 6500 Packet-Optical Platform.
"Consistently and with laser focus, Verizon has led the industry in 100G deployment since we first successfully deployed 100G four years ago," said Malady. "We're already looking at growth on our network in other geographic regions and expect to begin new regional deployments next year."
Looking beyond 100G, Verizon also recently announced a successful 200G technology trial.
