2010 is going to see a burst in bandwidth consumption according to TelecomSupperDesk.com. With trends like cloud computing and centralized clouds as well as an increase in customer demand for bandwidth, bandwidth providers are going to have their hands full.
NEF partner, AboveNet, Inc., a provider of high-bandwidth connectivity solutions for business and carriers is just such a company. As an authorized AboveNet agent, TelecomSupportDesk often relies on their fiber optic network. “When a business comes to us looking for high bandwidth from 100Mbps, 1Gpbs even to 10Gbps metro Ethernet solutions, chances are high that AboveNet is the right solution for them,” Mr. Wind (VP of Sales at TelecomSupportdesk.com) comments. “Especially the extreme low latency fiber optics (as low as 1 ms both ways) between two locations is why AboveNet often wins the deal. A low latency route can be extremely crucial for financial institutions as a change in milliseconds can often mean losses of millions in financial trades or transactions.”
