Global Crossing Adds Capacity

Global Crossing is adding capacity on both its North American terrestrial network and its Atlantic Crossing 1 (AC-1) subsea network. Specifically, the carrier is adding incremental capacity on strategic routes to its existing footprint, as well as two new routes: Seattle to Sacramento and Indianapolis to Atlanta. The upgrade will provide customers with lower latency routes, diversity options, 10Gbps and 10GigE wavelengths, and competitive pricing. The new capacity is scheduled to be ready for service by June 30, 2010.

Global Crossing also confirmed that it is adding additional capacity on AC-1 South, which connects Brookhaven, New York, to the United Kingdom via a self-healing ring using WDM. The new capacity is planned for service this summer.
