Alpheus Communications upgrades network meet bandwidth demand

Alpheus Communications has upgraded its core fiber network capability by deploying a new Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) system, boosting capacity from 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps per channel, the company said.

Carriers and enterprise businesses need more bandwidth than ever, driven by the continual increases in mobile and cloud-driven applications.

This latest investment enables Alpheus to continue offering cost-effective bandwidth to Texas businesses in major metropolitan markets, including Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. The DWDM upgrade to 100 Gbps per channel also represents a strategic benefit for Alpheus carrier customers, from aggregating high-bandwidth network traffic for optimized performance to connecting their clients in Texas and delivering cross-border traffic to Mexico.

The core network overbuild lets Alpheus provide much higher yet affordable bandwidth options. By partnering with Alpheus, carriers and large businesses can easily implement their network strategy without spending the capital required to build, light and manage their own fiber networks. Alpheus also offers managed network services, giving businesses the freedom to run multiple applications required for their mission-critical operations while Alpheus manages the network and scales the bandwidth to what is needed.
