Using the Overture Networks’ ISG 34, ISG 45, ISG 180 and the ISG 26 for advanced Ethernet access and demarcation, together with the new ISG 6000 for first level aggregation, COLT is developing a new suite of E-Line and E-LAN Ethernet services to address the growing demand from customers for fully managed services.
