Pacific Crossing Rolls Out Gigabit Ethernet over its Undersea Cable

Pacific Crossing, which operates the PC1 undersea cable across the Pacific, has added Gigabit Ethernet access support for its carrier and ISP customers.
Pacific Crossing's new service allows customers to access the PC-1 network using a standard Gigabit Ethernet interface at the company's four Points-of- Presences in the U.S. and cable landing stations in both the U.S. and Japan. For customers in Japan, Pacific Crossing also has the ability to offer access directly to a customer's premise through a domestic partner network.

Pacific Crossing's Gigabit Ethernet service offers a standard Gigabit level port for customers and flexible bandwidth subscription options in increments of 155Mbps (STM-1). Customers may scale up their bandwidth subscriptions quickly and seamlessly during their contract period. Additional subscription options to cater for seasonal or event-specific demand are available on a case-by-case basis.
