Pacnet, a provider of network and technology solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, is delivering 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) services to customers at CoreSite’s Los Angeles data center campus, including One Wilshire, to connect the U.S. to its Asia-Pacific network.
CoreSite Realty, a provider of data center solutions, said Pacnet has upgraded its trans-Pacific and Asia subsea cable network to 100Gbps to address demand for bandwidth services throughout the U.S. and Asia-Pacific region. Through Pacnet, CoreSite’s customers have the ability to connect to diverse carriers and gain subsea cable access without purchasing backhaul to a landing station.
Tom Ray, CEO at CoreSite, said: “As Internet traffic between the U.S. and Asia continues to increase, CoreSite customers can connect to a direct route to Asia, leveraging CoreSite’s capabilities as the leading gateway connecting the U.S. across the Pacific.”
Pacnet is the first carrier to provide 100Gbps services between the U.S. and Asia in an effort to support customers that require increasingly higher bandwidth solutions. This expansion is critical to the digital content companies, carriers, and large enterprises looking to direct connectivity to the Asia Pacific region.
“The 100Gbps bandwidth upgrade allowed us to roll out the Pacnet Enabled Network, a software-defined networking platform, at our interconnected data centers,” said John Garrett, president of Carrier Services, Pacnet.
CoreSite’s LA campus hosts the largest network community on the West Coast, with more than 375 customers, including domestic and international carriers, media and entertainment firms, cloud computing providers, social networking sites, gaming companies and enterprise customers.
