DALLAS – (August 13, 2014) – PEG Bandwidth, a premier provider of customized cell site backhaul and wireless infrastructure solutions, announces the completion of its 100G Ethernet route between Dallas, TX and Jackson, MS. This over 400 mile route, together with PEG Bandwidth’s extensive fiber network allows for the connection of rural America with the network speeds of metropolitan markets. Segments on this route include a newly-built, heavy strand count fiber route from Monroe, LA across the Mississippi River, to Jackson, MS. This new route creates diversity and redundancy in a region which has not experienced many green field fiber builds. Additionally, the deployment has allowed PEG Bandwidth to create a very low latency route direct from Dallas, TX to Jackson, MS.
PEG Bandwidth is currently accepting orders on this route. PEG Bandwidth has selected Ekinops to provide the primary DWDM network solution for this project. This system supports up to 40 Terabits per seconds of capacity with the capability to deliver 100 Gigabits per second traffic to customers along the route. By offering a 100G solution, PEG Bandwidth will be freeing up wavelengths that previously were used for 10G. Customers can benefit from large OPEX savings as the route can now carry 10 times the traffic.
“By offering a 100G Ethernet route along this route, we are exponentially increasing the bandwidth infrastructure currently in place,” states Greg Ortyl, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing of PEG Bandwidth. “This route will provide rural cable and telecom companies the ability to connect to major hubs in Dallas and Jackson. With this new service, PEG Bandwidth is providing more speed and capacity, thus allowing for businesses in these underserved areas to have cost-effective high speed services, normally only found in the larger surrounding cities.”
The Ekinops solution, with its patented T-Chip technology accompanied with its extended temperature range capability provides PEG Bandwidth the flexibility and performance to deliver a high-capacity service offering. As a provider of next-generation optical transport solutions for service providers and private networks, Ekinops is well positioned to work together with PEG Bandwidth to offer a cost-effective way to increase data transport capacity over a range of network platforms.
