Mid-Atlantic Broadband Tests Multi-Terabit Capacity Across Live Network

Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (MBC), which operates a wholesale fiber-optic open-access network, completed a trial last week delivering multi-terabit capacity on its existing network across southern Virginia.

The demonstration, which was conducted with Infinera's DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform and 500 Gbps super-channels, demonstrated MBC's ability to deliver multi-terabit capacity providing more bandwidth for data center operators, cloud providers, research and technology companies looking to expand into southern Virginia.

"This trial underscores MBC's ability to rapidly deliver terabit capacity on our existing network," said Tad Deriso, President & CEO of MBC. “As we look toward expanding and enhancing MBC's network infrastructure to accommodate 100Gb/s transport circuits throughout the region, this successful trial is validation that MBC will be able to continually deliver high capacity, scalable bandwidth to our carrier customers."
