Broadwing and Hutchison Launch TransPacific Inter-Carrier Ethernet over VPLS

Broadwing Communications and Hutchison Global Communications launched a new inter-carrier international Ethernet network spanning the Pacific.

HGC has established interconnections with Broadwing to extend the reach of this Pan Asian VPLS network into the United States via Broadwing's new Converged Services Network. The reciprocal relationship enables international customers to connect multipoint Ethernet services from locations served in Asia by HGC, its Asian partners and others, with multipoint Ethernet circuits in the United States.

The network, driven by Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) technology, offers users multipoint international Ethernet services and enables enterprises to create a global Ethernet network.

Broadwing and HGC have already validated the demand for the new Trans-Pacific Ethernet solution by completing a 6 Mbps, Taiwan to California, Ethernet circuit for a leading Taiwanese manufacturer of computer peripherals. Broadwing and HGC installed the end-user connection only days after the primary interconnection was completed .
