NEW YORK -- AboveNet Communications, Inc., a leading provider of fiber connectivity solutions, has expanded its Metro Ethernet portfolio with the addition of any-to-any and hub and spoke networking configurations. These dedicated, high-bandwidth multipoint solutions cost-effectively support:

  • Data Center and Server Consolidation

  • Financial data distribution/applications

  • Extranets/Collaboration

  • Financial data distribution/applications

  • Rich media and video streaming

  • And more

AboveNet Metro Ethernet eLAN and eHub services provide networks with greater flexibility and bandwidth-scalability compared to limited point-to-point networks. These multipoint Ethernet solutions can offer more cost-effective connectivity than ATM, Frame and other multipoint technologies when connecting three or more metro customer locations.

AboveNet's CTO, Rajiv Datta, said, "These new services provide customers with more choices to help them meet their metro connectivity needs, while they reap the benefits of Ethernet connectivity delivered by AboveNet's fiber-powered model."
