Covad Deploys Nationwide 10 Gbps MPLS Backbone

Covad Communications has completed a nationwide MPLS deployment and network capacity upgrades that will enable its partners to deliver advanced video, voice and data services. The upgrades include metro optical rings with up to OC-192 (10 Gbps) capacity and will allow Covad and its wholesale partners to meet the demanding needs of small businesses and distributed enterprises.

"Businesses are increasingly using broadband to deploy IP-based services to reduce costs and to increase productivity," said William Ferriauolo, senior vice president and general manager of Covad Wholesale. "Covad's new MPLS infrastructure will allow our partners to deliver revenue-generating, value-added services on a national broadband network that is competitive with what the very largest carriers can offer."
