SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 5 -- Centerpoint Broadband Technologies Inc. has deployed and integrated its Celerity CP 3200 (formerly the Zaffire Z3000) dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) equipment in several FLAG Telecom metropolitan area networks in North America and Europe.
The Celerity CP 3200 provides a network backbone that carries high-speed data traffic between FLAG Telecom's New York, London and Paris points-of-presence as part of its city-to-city transoceanic network, FLAG Atlantic-1. The Celerity CP 3200 extends FLAG Telecom's 10 Gigabit-based DWDM networks and services to these metro areas, bringing IP wavelength and other services closer to end customers.
Centerpoint worked closely with FLAG Telecom to deploy and integrate the Celerity CP 3200 in the three metropolitan areas, sequentially increasing the traffic until the network was operating at full service by late November. This is the first phase of a rollout of metropolitan networks FLAG Telecom is planning around the globe.
