AboveNet Enabling Law Firms With Custom, Dedicated, High Bandwidth Networks

Customers will benefit from diverse end-to-end high bandwidth connectivity

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- AboveNet, Inc. (NYSE:ABVT - News), a leading provider of high bandwidth connectivity solutions, today announced a new campaign focused on enabling law firms to connect to business hubs and clients in the U.S. and European metro markets over secure, private, fiber optic networks. AboveNet offers custom, diverse, MAN (metro area network) and WAN (wide area network) services to meet their needs.

AboveNet's customers include top legal firms who provide services to the world's largest corporations, banks and accounting firms. Their networks must handle data-intensive applications including high bandwidth video and media transfers, virtualization for larger transport links, data replication and disaster recovery.

To meet these demands, AboveNet provides up to 10 Gigabits per second of Ethernet connectivity over a diverse fiber optic network. Customers receive high bandwidth connectivity on a dedicated, private network. They also have guaranteed availability for all data communications, reserved bandwidth availability, and an infrastructure that can scale to meet growing business demands.

"Law firms must have a dedicated, private and secure network to connect with clients and partners to exchange critical information," said John "Joc" Jacquay, senior vice president of sales and marketing for AboveNet. "A shared network with unknown levels of security may put them at risk of a breach in security."

Speed and efficiency of the network is also critical for firms with attorneys and personnel spread across international locations.

AboveNet's international footprint is key to providing law firms with high bandwidth connectivity in and between top business hubs in the U.S and Europe. AboveNet connects to buildings containing more than 400 data centers, and its products are supported by approximately 2.3 million fiber miles and a global Tier 1 IP backbone.

  • IPMesh: Layer 3 connectivity between multiple customer locations using private IP routing.
  • eMesh: Layer 2 multipoint connectivity between multiple customer locations using VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service).
