TelCove this week will ramp up its metropolitan Ethernet services to a capacity of 10G bps, 10 times faster than its current offering.For enterprises with multiple locations that require very high-capacity connections, such as hospitals and colleges, TelCove Inc. this week will ramp up its metropolitan Ethernet services to a capacity of 10G bps, 10 times faster than its current offering. Until now, TelCoves metro and intercity fiber-optic network offered Ethernet service connections ranging from 10M bps to 1G bps. The Canonsburg, Pa., company provides voice, data and Internet connectivity in 70 markets in the eastern United States.
"We think the industries that are really going to jump on this are the disaster recovery services, state and local government, education groups that support multimedia, and health care," said Bob Crossland, senior product manager for Ethernet services at TelCove.
