The network upgrade included installing Metro-Dense Wave Divisional Multiplexing (MDWDM) technology and was designed to accommodate growing regional demand for next-generation telecommunications services like enterprise Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP), disaster recovery/business continuity services and 10-Gigabit metropolitan Ethernet service.
