Global Crossing Launches Ethernet IP Service

Global Crossing launched an Ethernet IP service that enables enterprises with multiple corporate locations to simply extend their LANs across the wide area network. Internet service providers (ISPs) can transparently connect their locations or access remote peering exchanges, regardless of the distance. The service, which runs over Global Crossing's MPLS backbone, eliminates the need for dedicated private line circuits. Ethernet IP service may be provisioned directly over Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet circuits for end-to-end Ethernet connections. Alternatively, Ethernet IP can provide point-to-point connections over SONET/SDH access circuits at bandwidths ranging from DS3/E3 up to OC48/STM16.
