Atlantic Broadband launches 10 gig metro Ethernet

Cogeco subsidiary Atlantic Broadband has launched 10 gigabit metro Ethernet service to business customers across its service areas in western Pennsylvania, Miami Beach, Maryland, Delaware and South Carolina.

The carrier is using its fiber network to let businesses extend their networks between office locations and major data centers via a private and secure WAN. While topping out at 10 Gbps, the service can offer speeds as low as 10 Mbps depending on the business customer's data needs. The equipment is scalable if those needs increase.

"Whether it is connecting distributed operations, leveraging the latest cloud services or supporting disaster recovery objectives, access to secure, scalable bandwidth has become like oxygen to today's businesses," said Denise Paine, Atlantic Broadband vice president and general manager, commercial services, said in a story carried by CED Magazine.

Among other things, the service, which leverages the carrier's newly enhanced Metro Ethernet Service, features end-to-end SLAs and on-network connections to large and regional data centers.
