Pacnet’s (News - Alert) newly upgraded sub-sea cable with 100G capacity should enable the company to easily cater to the rising demand for bandwidth services throughout the U.S. and the Asia Pacific region. The company is said to have upgraded its cable infrastructure at the Coresite Los Angeles data center campus.
The Coresite Los Angeles campus features access to more than 185 domestic and international carriers that support Internet, private networking and mobility for customers within the facility as well as leverages services from major cloud providers like AWS Direct Connect who offer additional connectivity options ensuring optimal performance for mission-critical data.
Using the 100G service from Pacnet, Coresite’s customers will now have the capability to connect to diverse carriers and gain high-capacity subsea cable access without purchasing backhaul to a landing station.
Tom Ray (News - Alert), chief executive officer at CoreSite, said, “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Pacnet and present our customers with higher bandwidth solutions and flexible connectivity options across the Pacific. As Internet traffic between the U.S. and Asia continues to increase, CoreSite (News - Alert) customers can connect to a direct route to Asia, leveraging CoreSite’s capabilities as the leading gateway connecting the U.S. across the Pacific.”
The Pacnet’s 100G network upgrade is viewed as a significant move to address the increasingly growing demand for bandwidth throughout the Asia-Pacific region and all over the world and the company 100G services supposedly boosted Pacnet’s bandwidth capacity and scalability to serve the dynamic needs of carriers and enterprises that support compute-intensive operations in the region. This expansion is critical to the digital content companies, carriers, and large enterprises looking to direct connectivity to the Asia Pacific region.
John Garrett, president of carrier services at Pacnet, added, “The 100Gbps bandwidth upgrade allowed us to roll out the Pacnet Enabled Network, a software-defined networking platform, at our interconnected data centers. CoreSite provides us with an access point to bring the innovative SDN platform to enterprise and carrier customers in the U.S., enabling them to self-provision scalable, private networks on demand and in minutes.”
