Seven Touch Points of Customer Excellence

In addition, Global Crossing now provides a diversity planning service to give customers the ability to assign alternate, redundant routes that assure maximum uptime for their data traffic.  This new wavelength service enables customers to stipulate a specific route for wavelength circuits.  It also provides assurances that routing will not be changed without a customer’s agreement and allows customers to create multiple diversity scenarios that include circuits provided by other service providers, as well as Global Crossing.

"Recent demand for higher speed 40G and 40GigE services is a natural progression from today’s mid-speed wavelength services driven by a wave of bandwidth intensive applications," stated Dan O’Connell, research director at Gartner. "The surge in video and consumer-based Internet content, 4G wireless applications, and new mega data center deployments drive robust demand for higher speed wavelength services at both the wholesale and enterprise level of global ICT market."

Wavelength services are ideal for large enterprises, as well as Internet service providers, international and domestic carriers, and competitive local exchange carriers that require high-speed, unprotected, point-to-point capacity.  Global Crossing Wavelength Service can be used to complete a SONET/SDH ring, gain access to a market where capacity requirements do not justify a dark fiber investment, or provide a temporary solution while dark fiber routes are planned and constructed.
