SOUTH BOSTON, Va. -- Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (MBC), a successful wholesale fiber-optic open-access network transport provider, completed a trial last week delivering multi-terabit capacity on its existing network across southern Virginia.

The trial demonstrated MBC's ability to deliver multi-terabit capacity providing more bandwidth for data center operators, cloud providers, research and technology companies looking to expand into southern Virginia. The demonstration was conducted with Infinera's DTN-X packet optical transport networking platform, featuring 500 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) super-channels. This trial proved MBC's network's ability to easily transition to supporting next generation terabit transport capability based on its existing Infinera DTN network.

"This trial underscores MBC's ability to rapidly deliver terabit capacity on our existing network," said Tad Deriso, President & CEO of MBC. “As we look toward expanding and enhancing MBC's network infrastructure to accommodate 100Gb/s transport circuits throughout the region, this successful trial is validation that MBC will be able to continually deliver high capacity, scalable bandwidth to our carrier customers."

MBC recently launched GoSOVA, an economic development initiative designed to attract growing, global companies to expand and locate in Southern Virginia (SOVA). Working in partnership with local and regional economic development groups, GoSOVA helps create and coordinate outreach programs that raise awareness of the region’s talented workforce, pro-business environment and connected infrastructure via Southern Virginia’s advanced open-access telecom network built and operated by MBC.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
