MBC completes multi-terabit capacity trial over live network

10 April 2014 |


Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities (MBC) has completed a successful trial of multi-terabit capacity on its existing network in southern Virginia, US.

The trial was conducted with Infinera’s DTN-X platform using 500Gbps super-channels, and is expected to facilitate the expansion of bandwidth for data centre operators and cloud providers.

“The trial underscores MBC’s ability to rapidly deliver terabit capacity on our existing network,” said Tad Deriso, president and CEO at MBC.

“As we look toward to expanding and enhancing MBC’s network infrastructure to accommodate 100Gbps transport circuits throughout the region, this successful trial is validation that MBC will be able to continually deliver high-capacity, scalable bandwidth to our carrier customers,” Deriso added.

In September last year, MBC announced a network expansion in the mid-Atlantic region.
