Verizon deploys 100GE technology to meet enterprise cloud, video demand
Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is beefing up its global IP network by deployed 100 gigabit Ethernet (GE) technology to the edge routers of its Private IP network to give enterprises faster speeds and increase bandwidth for cloud and video services.
Enterprise cloud services are on the rise, with three-quarters of enterprises recently�surveyed�by cloud management firm RightScale saying they are adopting cloud computing.
The 100GE technology is designed to provide enterprises with the bandwidth and speed needed to access data securely at remote storage locations as more applications and data are moved to the cloud, Verizon explained in a�release.
The carrier's Private IP service provides the foundation for communication and business process automation for e-commerce, shared corporate intranets and extranets and video applications.
Verizon said it will put the 100GE technology on the same U.S. and European routes where its 100G long-haul networks are deployed.
"The increase in demand for cloud and data center connectivity is driving the decision to expand our service offering to higher speeds in order to meet the bandwidth needs of our customers by providing reliable, high-performance and secure services," said Ihab Tarazi, vice president of product technology at Verizon.
