Reliance Globalcom lights up P2P Ethernet on its FA-1 network

With the launch of its 10G LAN PHY service, Reliance Globalcom's FA-1 Network can now provide carrier and enterprise customers another new connectivity option.

Leveraging its existing optical wavelengths, Reliance claims that because the new dedicated point-to-point Ethernet service has 10.31 Gbps data rate capacity, it can provide a 10X increase in customer bandwidth.

Available on its north and south FA-1 submarine network routes as well as within New York, London and Paris metros, Reliance says the service is ideal for carriers that want to migrate their service sets from 10G to 10G LAN PHY by the end of the year. At the same time, an enterprise customer could plug the service directly into the existing corporate LAN.
