Everest Deploys Ethernet Services
"MESA was developed as a scaleable, IP over Ethernet metropolitan architecture to optimize Everest's innovative PoP and in-building infrastructure," said Dr. Rashmi Doshi, Everest Chief Technology Officer and Founder. "The PoP becomes a retail storefront for delivering the first converged voice, data, video and best-of-breed applications services to the premises of small and medium-sized business customers in multi-tenant unit (MTU) office buildings. MESA enables Everest to deliver these services with carrier-grade reliability and quality of service, dynamic bandwidth management, multiple levels of security and IP directory-enabled services - all customizable by service or application for each customer."
In a separate announcement:
Everest Broadband Networks, a leading, next generation provider of metropolitan IP broadband services over Ethernet to commercial buildings, today introduced its Liquid MegaBit service, the first service that lets small and medium-sized business customers set and control the amount of dedicated Internet bandwidth they receive and use. Liquid MegaBit is an innovative transport service that will give users an unprecedented spectrum of bandwidth increments, definable down to megabits and provisioned on-demand. It is the first in a series of new converged voice, data, video and best-of-breed applications services that Everest will introduce based on its Metropolitan Ethernet Services Architecture (MESA), which was announced separately today.
