Internet2 Uses Level 3 Network

09.05.2007

Telecommunications provider Level 3 Communications' (level3.com) Business Markets Group announced on Tuesday that the Internet2 (internet2.edu) nationwide, dedicated network services backbone is operational. The new 100Gbps network increases the bandwidth and scalability to deliver emerging applications for the Internet2 research and education community.

The network delivers the underlying optical technology required for Internet2 to dynamically provision multiple 10Gbps wavelengths, enabling Internet2 to successfully move all of its members from the existing network to this new backbone by the end of the year.

The multi-year agreement will provide Internet2 with Level 3's dedicated backbone facilities comprising 13,500 long-haul route miles, multiple customer colocation suites and newly deployed metro fiber. Level 3 is also providing wavelength and high-speed IP services to Internet2 with options for private line, metro and long-haul dark fiber services to interconnect the backbone with academic institutions.

"We are very pleased to have completed the delivery of a network of this scale for Internet2," says Randy Dunbar, senior VP of offer management for Level 3's Business Markets Group. "We are proud to be an Internet2 business partner and to be providing a network that delivers increased bandwidth and scalability, enabling research and education communities to capitalize on technology innovations."

Level 3 announced last week that it delivered fiber optic links to the Library of Congress.
