Communications Company Deploys Private Metro Optical Network

AboveNet Communications, Inc., a leading provider of fiber optic connectivity solutions, has deployed the first two nodes of its Boston Private Metro Optical Platform in the two Sentinel Data Centers. Sentinel Data Centers' customers located at its MA-1 (Needham, MA) and MA-2 (Bedford, MA) facilities will now benefit from a scalable optical network platform offering services from 1Gb to 10Gb to key carrier Points of Presence and commercial buildings in the Boston area.

Sentinel's tenants can utilize a high speed optical network that completely bypasses the local telephone company network. This allows for a completely diverse network path to provide for disaster recovery and compliance-related network connectivity. Sentinel is a leading provider of carrier-neutral enterprise data center solutions.

AboveNet's Data Center plan calls for the deployment of strategic Private Metro Optical Nodes at key datacenters throughout the Boston Metro Area. By doing so, AboveNet can deliver its full suite of services including 100Mb Ethernet, 1 Gb Ethernet, Long Haul, VPN, DWDM Wavelength Services and Internet access.

Doug Turtz, Executive Director of Sales at AboveNet, said, "By deploying our first two Metro Optical nodes at Sentinel, AboveNet is uniquely positioned to deliver high speed connections in a timely manner for Sentinel customers. Those customers can look forward to outstanding service offerings that tie into AboveNet's nationwide footprint."
