Lightower to Present on Packet Optical Network Integration & Any-Service-to-Anywhere Solutions

BOXBOROUGH, MA–(Marketwire – October 27, 2009) – Lightower Fiber Networks, a leading metro fiber network and bandwidth service provider serving the northeast United States, will be presenting and exhibiting at the Light Reading Ethernet Expo 2009 in New York City from November 3rd through November 4th. Lightower's presentation will be on Wednesday, November 4th at 3:30pm.

"Lightower began as three different companies with three different fiber networks. Integrating these networks into one, seamless packet optical network presented a lot of challenges," said Alex Latzko, Lightower Senior Network Architect.

Alex will be delivering a presentation on how Lightower successfully integrated the three geographically diverse optical networks into one, unified, multi-service packet platform.

"Today Lightower can offer any-service-to-anywhere in our footprint. In addition, our architecture and our utility rights-of-way allow us to offer ultra low latency solutions with geographic diversity from our competitors."

Lightower specializes in providing customers with a wide range of custom built, high bandwidth networking services including Ethernet, wavelengths, IP, SONET, and dark fiber. With the rapid growth of its customer base and increasing demand for bandwidth, Lightower has upgraded its core network backbone to 40G and is uniquely equipped to provide connectivity services from 10 Mbps to 40 Gbps. In addition, Lightower's network is also 100G ready.

Ethernet Expo 2009 is the premier event covering the hot topic of carrier Ethernet network technologies and services in North America. Light Reading's ninth Ethernet Expo, this year's event in New York City will assemble dozens of experts from the service provider, supplier, and analyst communities to explore the hottest trends and paint a roadmap for where Ethernet is likely to take us through the rest of this decade.
