Expand your niche in the evolving cloud ecosystem
Increase competitive differentiation and unlock new revenue
Moving massive amounts of data across clouds in just hours requires on-demand, high-capacity connectivity, especially near the metro edge. This challenge presents an opportunity to leverage your optical network assets to deliver an innovative, high-capacity cloud exchange service.
We offer a flexible, scalable, and secure switched optical infrastructure using intelligent automation to provide an on-demand, high-capacity wavelength service with enhanced service-level agreement options. This pay-as-you-go solution allows enterprises to quickly provision and schedule 100G/400G of capacity when and where they need it.
Unlock new revenue opportunities with industry-leading coherent optics that scale up to 800G and a flexible ROADM-based optically switched infrastructure. Offer a premium customer experience with dedicated high-speed, low-latency, and highly secure multi-cloud access on demand.
