GTT Communications has launched optical transport services, for highly scalable bandwidth and low-latency connectivity available at 10G and 100G speeds, enabling seamless transport of high-volume data and cloud-based applications between global financial markets, data centers, media hubs and service provider networks.
The services leverage the company’s subsea and terrestrial fiber optic network, which is optimized for latency performance. The network utilizes a state-of-the-art dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) platform and includes three owned and operated, diverse transatlantic cables, as well as over 75 points of presence in North America and Europe.
According to research firm TeleGeography, the global demand for international bandwidth is expected to increase 13-fold between 2016 and 2023. GTT’s Wavelengths provide clients with high-performance, scalable connectivity and guaranteed bandwidth between global locations, enabling organizations to meet rapidly increasing network capacity requirements.
GTT’s low-latency service provides connectivity at industry-leading speeds between the world’s major financial, media and commercial centers. The service is delivered on GTT Express, with a performance of under 59 milliseconds between New York and London. Additionally, GTT’s service provides card and route diversity, mitigating the risk of any single point of network failure.
“Optical transport is a key addition to GTT’s comprehensive suite of cloud networking services,” said Rick Calder, GTT president and CEO. “Demand for low-latency, secure transport of large volumes of data and cloud-based applications continues to grow. Our optical transport services provide the scalability, performance guarantees and resiliency to meet our clients’ most critical high-speed networking requirements.”
