Lightpath a DWDM convert
Lightpath, the commercial services unit of Cablevision Systems Corp., has completed a Sonet-to-DWDM conversion of its core network.
The upgrade will enable the company to offer advanced IP-based and broadband services to businesses in the Tri-State metro area, including New York City, Long Island, Westchester, southern Connecticut and northern New Jersey.
The conversion will give Lightpath the ability to migrate to a 10 Gigabits per second-capable core network.
Already underway is the second phase of Lightpath's upgrade, which will overlay the DWDM core with MPLS (multiple-protocol label switching) technology.
