US Signal extends Ethernet reach via CENX's Ethernet Exchange

US Signal, a Midwest-based service provider, has become the latest service provider to hop aboard CENX's Ethernet Exchange train.

By establishing its first interconnection point at CENX's Chicago exchange, US Signal will be able to provide other service providers access its Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS)-based Virtual Ethernet Services product. This interconnection point provides not only faster turn-up time for US Signal's wholesale customers, but also extends its Ethernet service business to a larger audience outside of its Midwest territory.

"Our partnership with CENX provides the most cost effective way for our wholesale customers to reach Ethernet service locations across our extensive network," said Dan Olrich, chief operating officer for US Signal in a release. "Connecting with CENX also gives US Signal the ability to create a seamless network for our customers."
