Level 3 Provides Ethernet Services to Cbeyond
Level 3 Communications's wholesale markets group has announced that it has enabled Cbeyond, an IP-based, managed services provider to small businesses, to expand its services into three additional markets. Level 3 now serves as a primary provider of ethernet services for Cbeyond.
Under the terms of the agreement, Level 3 will continue to increase bandwidth on current circuits and provide additional circuits as needed in all 12 Cbeyond metropolitan area markets. In doing so, Level 3 will assist in the scaling of Cbeyond's network capacity and the ongoing migration from traditional Time Division Multiplexing to ethernet technology using metro ethernet private line services.
Richard Batelaan, COO of Cbeyond, said: "As Cbeyond continues to flourish in existing markets and expands into new markets, we are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Level 3 as they provide us with high-bandwidth network offerings. Level 3's ability to turn up ethernet solutions effectively is proving to be a considerable asset in our growth strategy."
