Global Crossing Signs Railcar Provider for EtherSphere

TTX, which is North America's leading provider of railcars and related freight car management services, is using Global Crossing's new EtherSphere service to support its data center back-ups and for business operations at seven U.S. locations. TTX also purchased Global Crossing's IP VPN Service and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) service.

Global Crossing has interconnected TTX Company's data center to its MPLS backbone, replacing circuits from multiple providers and by converging access to Global Crossing's private and public IP backbone.

"By using our EtherSphere service, TTX Company is able to access a high-speed connection from its data center directly to our IP VPN and DIA backbone, replacing a key circuit from its previous provider," said Neil Barua, Global Crossing's managing director for North America. "This met their business goals to improve network efficiency and reduce cost."

Global Crossing's EtherSphere services are part of the company's Ethernet WAN transport portfolio of services and include EtherSphere Multipoint-to-Multipoint, EtherSphere Point-to-Multipoint and EtherSphere Point-to-Point solutions. The services are available today to enterprise and wholesale customers in North America, Europe and Latin America.
