FIBER NETWORK WAVELENGTH SERVICES
MBC utilizes the Infinera DTN platform for providing low-latency, highly scalable optical transport services on our regional and long-haul networks. Typically, MBC utilizes the Infinera platform for services above 1Gbps. MBC utilizes a Ciena network platform in conjunction with the Infinera backbone for sub-rate services below 1Gbps that is highly scalable and offers a unique GMPLS aware capability which automatically reroutes circuits in the event of a fiber cut on our backbone routes.
MBC can provision the following types of services:
MBC offers 10Mbps through 500Mbps dedicated services.
MBC provides E-NNI services via VLANS for multiple segments at same location.
1GigE wave, 1GigE LANPHY
10GigE wave, 10GigE LANPHY
100GigE wave, 100GigE LANPHY
MBC offers SONET/TDM transport services on our regional and long haul network.
MBC supports the following services:
DS1 / DS3
OC3 / OC12 / OC48 / OC192
For carrier customers requiring aggregation services, MBC offers interconnects of OC-3, OC-12, and OC-48 to groom sub-rate transport circuits at the STS level. We will evaluate VT1.5 grooming on a case by case basis.
MBC is on the Connected2Fiber Connected World platform. If you would like a building list, please email Sarah Miller and we will be glad to add you to our distribution.
MBC is a Virginia-based leader in creating
unique public-private partnerships to build and operate
open-access fiber networks. MBC has built over
1,900 route miles of fiber in Southern Virginia
to bring competition and drive down costs to
accelerate digital inclusiveness.
