Lightpath has launched its 100-Gigabit Optical Transport Service. The high-bandwidth service, which is delivered via wavelength over the 100-percent fiber Lightpath network, has already been deployed by a media and entertainment company to move large volumes of video.
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 health care 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 health care 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.
“From the introduction of managed services to new offerings that meet increased demands for bandwidth, Lightpath remains in lockstep with its customers as their businesses evolve,” said Julia McGrath, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for Lightpath. “With 100-Gigabit OTS, we remain well-positioned to serve even the most robust data transport demands of New York metro area businesses, all backed by the premium service they’ve come to expect.”
