Global Crossing Expands its EtherExtend Flex Access Service

Global Crossing's EtherExtend Flex Service is now available in 26 locations worldwide. The company recently added Houston, Sunnyvale, Singapore and Frankfurt. The service is available in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region and will be available in more than 70 points of presence in these same regions, plus Latin America, by the end of 2009.

EtherExtend Flex lowers a user's cost of access and matches the access Level of Service to the application's needs. It provides a last-mile Ethernet connection to Global Crossing's end-user customer via logical connections over a physical Network-to-Network Interface with the access provider, rather than forwarding the customer's traffic over a fixed physical connection to Global Crossing.

EtherExtend Flex can be paired with Global Crossing IP VPN or Dedicated Internet Access/IP Transit services, whether managed or unmanaged. The service also can support Collaboration, Voice over Internet Protocol and other applications that utilize these transport services.

Other sites where the service is available are Hong Kong in Asia; Amsterdam, London, Milan and Paris in Europe; Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. in the United States, and Toronto, Canada.
