Global Crossing Adds 340 Gbps of Transatlantic Capacity

Global Crossing has expanded the capacity on its Mid-Atlantic Crossing (MAC) undersea fiber-optic cable system by 340 Gbps to meet rapidly growing demand for IP and Ethernet transport among its customers, and to enhance connectivity between North America, Latin America and Europe. The MAC system provides 10 Gbps services with a current design capacity of 1.3 Terabits. The new capacity will enable 10 Gbps IP ports and also SDH at rates up to 10 Gbps (STM-64).


The system includes approximately 4,600 route miles (7,500 Km) of fiber-optic cable and landing stations in Brookhaven, N.Y., Hollywood, Fla., and St. Croix, U.S.V.I. MAC connects Global Crossing's Pan-American Crossing (PAC(R)), South American Crossing (SAC(R)) and Atlantic Crossing 1 (AC-1(R)) subsea systems to provide full connectivity between North America, Latin America and Europe.http://www.globalcrossing.com
