Optimum Lightpath goes 40 Gig

Cable provider Optimum Lightpath is now offering 40 Gigabit optical transport to its customers and offers hints that it will up speeds further in the “foreseeable future.”

No big surprise that financial traders were highlighted in the press release among the users in Optimum’s footprint needing high-bandwidth and “extremely low latency.”  Customers are expected to tap into 40 gigabit optical to consolidate multiple 10 gigabit links for improved network operations, get more bandwidth and speed, and have a path to move from 40G to 100G “when the need arises.”

The platform – not named in the press release – is based on WDM and “positioned” to support 40 Gig Ethernet when it is standardized.
