U.S. Wavelength Service

Why Verizon?

Verizon's US Wavelength services offer you an InterLATA, dedicated, high-bandwidth, high-speed, and private network that provides dedicated transport using wavelengths. This service gives you optical network connectivity for point-to-point or multipoint configurations and uses Verizon's broad and dependable networks.


" This service allows for great flexibility and bandwidth options by allowing many data streams to travel over the same pair of fiber but utilizing different colors of light."

Introduction

Provide Backup for Your Customers

Verizon's U.S. Wavelength service lets you provide dedicated bandwidth customer solutions such that each request for service is designed and priced on an individual-case basis. U.S. Wavelength service gives your subscribers options for using single or multipoint configuration optical network connectivity services that can help preserve their critical business data.

Our U.S. Wavelength service delivers 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps wavelength speeds between InterLATA locations. The service can be configured as either transparent or non-transparent, and uses SONET framing to provide an optical handoff on the wavelength. Subscribers receive a highly reliable network. You can offer your customers SONET OC-48 and OC-192, D1 Video, GigE, Fiber Channel, FICON or ESCON interfaces for both 2.5 and 10 Gbps wavelength speeds.

How It Works

U.S. Wavelength service uses an InterLATA 2.5 Gbps or 10 Gbps optical circuit that is delivered over the IXC network as an unprotected (2 wire) or protected (4 wire) signal using Dense Wave Division Multiplexing. Many data streams can then travel over the same pair of fiber by using different colors of light.

Description

The U.S. Wavelength product is an InterLATA Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) service designed to offer a 2.5Gbps and 10Gbps optical circuit. U.S. Wavelength Service allows the customer to purchase single or multiple wavelengths in a point-to-point or multi-point configuration. Wavelength Services provide businesses with an efficient and scalable way to connect mainframes, data centers, and storage networks across the United States. This high-bandwidth optical network makes it possible for many data streams to travel over the same pair of fiber by utilizing different colors of light.

This is delivered as an unprotected or protected signal using DWDM. Its flexibility lends itself as a protocol-independent universal optical interface and is designed for InterLATA locations within the United States. It is supported by the following wavelength and equipment interfaces:

  • 2.5 Gbps Wavelength Service
    • Non-Transparent service is currently available, to provide customers with an optical handoff on the wavelength, using SONET framing. Customers may choose from: SONET (OC-48 or OC-192), GigE (1 Gbps), D1 Video (270Mbps), Fiber Channel (1 Gbps, 2 Gbps), FICON (1 Gbps, 2 Gbps), and ESCON (200 Mbps).
    • Transparent (protocol independent) services are available on an Individual Case Basis (ICB).
  • 10 Gbps Wavelength Service
    • Non-Transparent service is currently available, to provide customers with an optical handoff on the wavelength, using SONET framing. Customers may choose from: SONET (OC-48 or OC-192), GigE (1 Gbps), D1 Video (270Mbps), Fiber Channel (1 Gbps, 2 Gbps), FICON (1 Gbps, 2 Gbps), and ESCON (200 Mbps).
    • Ethernet (LAN PHY) 10GigE interface is available.
    • Transparent (protocol independent) services are available on an ICB.
