Lightpath Intros 100 Gigabit Optical Transport Service in New York
JERICHO, N.Y.—Lightpath, a division of Cablevision, announced 100 Gigabit Optical
Transport Service in New York. The high-bandwidth service, which is delivered
via wavelength over the fully fiber Lightpath network, has
been deployed by a media and entertainment company to move large
volumes of video across the region. The 100 Gigabit OTS is available
throughout the entire Lightpath footprint and sold based on a flat,
monthly recurring charge.
Demand for 100 gigabit services is rising as companies across
financial and market data services, media and entertainment, and
healthcare move to support emerging needs for additional bandwidth.
These needs include supporting cloud-based services, an influx of
devices onto enterprise networks and an increase in volume, scalability,
and quality of media content. Some industries, particularly healthcare
and financial services, also face changing regulatory climates that
require secure and remote storage of data. Further, the economics of
deploying 100 gigabit are growing increasingly attractive as some
enterprises outgrow their 10 gigabit service and consider the full range
of upgrade options.
Lightpath 100 Gigabit OTS provides optical transport based on wave division multiplexing. The Lightpath network comprises more than 5,442 route
miles connecting more than 6,000 fiber-lit locations.
