VPLS Utilizes Sunesys Dark Fiber for 100Gigabit Connection

VPLS, premier cloud and managed service provider, to utilize Sunesys dark fiber to achieve 100Gbps of network connectivity between two data center locations in Southern California.

Warrington, PA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014

Sunesys, LLC, a leading carrier of dark fiber, Ethernet and private wavelength networks, is proud to announce that VPLS, a premier cloud and managed service provider, is using Sunesys dark fiber to achieve 100Gbps of connectivity between two data center locations in Southern California.

In 2013, Sunesys first provided a dark fiber connection to VPLS and has since added two additional strands, which connect VPLS’s LAX9 data center in downtown Los Angeles to their LAX10 data center in El Segundo. “The benefit of going with a dark fiber network is that we’re able to use our own equipment – giving us complete control and the flexibility to increase bandwidth without additional costs. Sunesys was able to provide a cost-effective fiber optic solution to bridge the 40KM distance,” explains Ted Mektrakarn, Chief Executive Officer at VPLS.

Sunesys looks forward to a continued relationship with VPLS. “The cloud and managed hosting services and Internet connectivity that VPLS provides to its customers, require high-bandwidth network solutions like the dark fiber offering we currently have in place,” states Sunesys Senior Vice President Alan Katz. “ In this dynamic marketplace, we continue to see bandwidth hungry carriers surpass the 1G and 10G offerings, shooting straight for 40G and beyond. We are excited to see companies like VPLS pushing this boundary over our network.”

Sunesys, headquartered in Pennsylvania, currently operates over 9,000 fiber route miles in ten states across the country. Sunesys’ entire footprint can be viewed online at or by downloading the Sunesys App, available for iPhone and Android devices.
