Monroe, La. -- CenturyLink, Inc. today announced that it has launched its first dedicated 100 Gbit/s data networking circuit for a CenturyLink business customer through a direct connection to the company's recently upgraded 100G nationwide network.

DigitalGlobe, a leading provider of commercial high-resolution earth observation and advanced geospatial solutions, will use CenturyLink's 100G Optical Wavelength Service to launch a new product allowing its customers direct access to satellite mapping data.
