Gigabit Transport Services for Carriers and Business Services
The networking industry is at a crucial point, as bandwidth demands for collaboration, video, and mobile traffic are increasing like never before, putting service provider networks under even more pressure. Service providers themselves are struggling to increase average revenue per user (ARPU), while reducing costs for upgrades and operations, and relying on Carriers Carrier’s and their extended technology partnerships more than ever.
LightRiver offers end-to-end 100 Gbps solutions, and above, that can span the core, network edge, data center, and optical transport. These custom network solutions are built on the latest innovations in high-speed optics, lowering the cost per bit, while dramatically scaling network capacity.
Many service providers want to provide enhanced metro Ethernet services, in the form of DWDM and Carrier Ethernet.
