HERNDON, Va. -- RCN Metro Optical Networks, a division of RCN Corporation (NASDAQ: RCNI) and a premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, announced today that it completed the upgrade of the access layer of its Ethernet network to include 10 Gigabit Metro Ethernet-based transport at several key locations.

The upgrade has further enhanced RCN Metro’s already strong network performance and low levels of latency. These enhancements come in direct response to customer demand for increased bandwidth. With the addition of 10 Gigabit Metro Ethernet at the access layer, RCN Metro customers will gain greater scalability, reducing the amount of time needed to increase bandwidth to mere days – resulting in enhanced network performance.

“While competitors may offer 10 Gigabit service at the access layer, they’re still delivering it via costly DWDM or SONET technologies. With this latest upgrade, RCN Metro is pioneering the delivery of 10 Gigabit Metro Ethernet at the access layer,” said Felipe Alvarez, President of RCN Metro. “This announcement illustrates RCN Metro’s ongoing commitment to continually upgrade our network, ensuring that our customers experience the highest levels of performance and reliability through the most technologically advanced and cost-effective solutions available.”
