There is No Substitute for Optical Transport

In today’s fast-paced digital environment, high-volume data and applications must flow seamlessly and securely between global financial markets, media hubs, data centers and service provider networks. Optical transport — with its highly scalable bandwidth and low latency connectivity — is a critical enabling element.

Businesses can obtain optical transport services by working with companies like GTT Communications, Inc., a leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients. GTT recently launched its new Optical Transport service, leveraging the company’s subsea and terrestrial fiber-optic network that is optimized for latency performance.

The network uses a state-of-the-art dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) platform and includes three GTT-owned and operated, geographically diverse transatlantic cables. The network also has over 75 points of presence in Europe and North America.

GTT’s Optical Transport includes Low Latency and Wavelength services at speeds of 10G and 100G. This will prove to be very helpful to businesses in the coming years, as TeleGeography predicts global demand for international bandwidth will increase 13-fold between 2016 and 2023. Wavelength offers clients high-performance, scalable connectivity as well as guaranteed bandwidth between global locations to help meet increasing network capacity requirements.

GTT’s Low Latency service provides connectivity at industry-leading speeds between the world’s major media, financial and commercial hubs. It is delivered on GTT Express, the lowest latency transatlantic cable in the industry, delivering unmatched performance at fewer than 59 milliseconds between London and New York. Furthermore, GTT’s Low Latency service offers 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,” stated 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.”
