Mammoth Networks, a facilities-based aggregator of wholesale data services, on Monday revealed expanding its Ethernet Aggregation product line with the addition of Layer 2 Ethernet long-haul service.
The company said it is piloting the service in 17 initial markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.
The Mammoth Ethernet Aggregation platform combines Metro Ethernet services with long-haul Ethernet, and the service provides handoffs from 10MBps to 10Gbps, latency guarantees, jitter guarantees and high-availability guarantees, the company announced.
Mammoth Networks said the product allows for the creation of WANS without mileage charges or concern for LATA boundaries.
The Gillette, Wyo.-based aggregator said it can leverage 21 carriers, delivering fiber services to 172,984 buildings, towers and central offices across Canada, Hawaii and the continental U.S.
In another development, Mammoth Networks announced naming Dash Carrier Services CEO Justin Nelson to its board of directors. Nelson has more than 12 years of technical and high-level management experience in the telecom industry.
The company plans to add additional project management and operational staff to manage growth.
“Having Justin as an advisor strengthens our ability to handle challenges as they arise for our business and our clients," said Mammoth CEO Brian Worthen. “Not only does he augment our industry experience, he is a powerful executive with a get in the trenches attitude."
