VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Electric Lightwave, a provider of fiber-¬based, carrier-¬grade networking, communications and technology solutions, announced today that it has doubled its network long-haul routes and capabilities. The expansion reflects Electric Lightwave’s focus on strategic fiber asset investments to address rising customer demands for high-bandwidth access to cloud services and data centers.

Electric Lightwave’s innovative approach to deploying advanced technologies throughout its network architecture, combined with on-going new builds and its acquisition of opticAccess, offers its customers the largest and most differentiated fiber network in the western U.S.

With multiple direct routes available between major West Coast metro areas and cable landing stations, Electric Lightwave customers have more diverse, low latency route options, allowing them the choice of bypassing heavy traffic paths commonly used by other carriers. For example, a cloud provider is achieving less than 8 millisecond round-trip latency between Los Angeles (LA) and the Bay Area through the use of 100g Wavelength services on both of Electric Lightwave’s unique fiber routes.

Electric Lightwave is the only provider with two unique routes between LA and the Bay Area with both terrestrial and subsea routes with cable landing stations. From Seattle to LA, Electric Lightwave offers a dense infrastructure architected to deliver the high bandwidth capacity and diversity its customers require for transporting their critical data.

The Electric Lightwave network offers route options that include:

  • Three direct routes between LA and the Bay Area terminating in different buildings with the capability of combining segments of the three routes to create a custom, diverse, fourth route
  • A direct route from the Bay Area to Hillsboro, Oregon, bypassing Portland, Oregon, enabling direct access to a key Oregon data center cluster and cable landing station
