Wavelength Services: Optical networking

Create fast high-bandwidth connectivity between locations.

  • Break through bottlenecks with optical networking.

  • To achieve digital transformation, you need increased bandwidth and capacity to deliver big data, manage critical workloads and meet the needs of low-latency applications. With data and applications aggregated at hubs, data centers and public clouds, you need to transport large workloads often and with secure, ultralow latency. Wavelength Services can help meet these needs.

Wavelength Services is best for:

  • Shield


    Organizations that need to securely connect multiple data centers and locations

  • Data


    Businesses that need to collect real-time data to optimize and make decisions

  • Location tracking


    Any organization using data-intensive apps or passing lots of data between locations

  • Clouds reflecting from glass windows

    What is it?

    Wavelength Services uses optical networking and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology to deliver highly reliable, low-jitter Layer 1 transport at up to 100 Gbps between locations. Use thousands of standard routes to help better manage network resiliency.
