JERICHO, N.Y.-- Lightpath, a market leader in Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York metropolitan area businesses, today announced its 100 Gigabit Optical Transport Service (OTS). The high-bandwidth service, which is delivered via wavelength over the 100 percent fiber Lightpath network, has already been deployed by a media and entertainment company to move large volumes of video across the region. 100 Gigabit OTS is available throughout the entire Lightpath footprint and sold based on a flat, monthly recurring charge.

Demand for 100 gigabit services is rising as companies across financial and market data services, media and entertainment, and healthcare move to support emerging needs for additional bandwidth. These needs include supporting cloud-based services, an influx of devices onto enterprise networks and an increase in volume, scalability, and quality of media content. Some industries, particularly healthcare and financial services, also face changing regulatory climates that require secure and remote storage of data. Further, the economics of deploying 100 gigabit are growing increasingly attractive as some enterprises outgrow their 10 gigabit service and consider the full range of upgrade options.

“From the introduction of managed services to new offerings that meet increased demands for bandwidth, Lightpath remains in lockstep with its customers as their businesses evolve,” said Julia McGrath, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for Lightpath. “With 100 Gigabit OTS, we remain well-positioned to serve even the most robust data transport demands of New York metro area businesses, all backed by the premium service they’ve come to expect.”

Lightpath 100 Gigabit OTS provides low-latency, high-security and high-speed optical services based on wave division multiplexing. The offering is enhanced by premium monitoring and support by Lightpath, helping to ensure overall reliability and performance. Customers also benefit from increased resilience enabled by extensively diverse and redundant network routing.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
