Global Crossing Upgrades Mid-Atlantic Subsea Network

Global Crossing, an IP solutions provider, has expanded its Mid-Atlantic Crossing (MAC) subsea fiber optic cable system due to an increased demand for IP and Ethernet transport between North America, Latin America and Europe.

The demand for international bandwidth has averaged 52 percent annual growth between 2002 and 2007, an indicator that subsea capacity investment is principally demand-driven. Global Crossing is meeting that demand by allowing the world to invest further in content-rich network applications and the growth of the internet.

With new equipment and an additional 340 Gigabits per second of transport capacity on the MAC subsea cable, Global Crossing is now able to provide its customers with 10 Gbps services and a design capacity of 1.3 Terabits.

The subsea cable, which consists of 4,600 route miles, connects Global Crossing’s Pan-American Crossing, South American Crossing and Atlantic Crossing subsea systems.  Thanks to Global Crossing, there is now an infrastructure that supports the world’s growth and increased need for IP connectivity and broadband services.
