Network Upgrade Is in Response to Increased Customer Demand for High-Capacity Broadband
COLUMBIA, MISSOURI — June 25, 2018 — Bluebird Network, a Midwest telecommunications company, today announces it has built its first customer-facing 100G diverse circuits. The customer circuits, totaling 200G overall, will be installed along two existing fiber routes from a metropolitan center to a rural area of Missouri. Installation on the circuits has been completed.
“The deployment of customer-facing 100G services shows how the growing need for high-capacity broadband is increasing as more devices require high-speed connections,” states Michael Morey, President and CEO of Bluebird Network. “Bluebird Network had the foresight to upgrade our network to be 100G capable so that when the customer need arose, Bluebird could respond and deliver the service to the customer quickly.”
Bluebird Network focuses on providing high bandwidth to both rural and urban areas in the Midwest, connecting rural areas to major cities. The company currently provides a wide variety of network services to enterprise and carrier customers, including secure and reliable bandwidth, Metro Ethernet, Wide Area Network Ethernet, Dedicated Internet Access, E-Line Services, Ethernet Virtual Private Lan Service (E-LAN) and Mobile Backhaul Transport services. Bluebird Network’s fiber optic infrastructure also connects to the Bluebird Underground Data Center, a collocation facility located in Springfield, Missouri.
“Bluebird Network provides an expansive network and state-of-the-art technology,” adds Mr. Morey. “Our talented network team is able to recognize and avoid obstacles and implement new technologies quickly. For example, Bluebird Network has future plans to move toward a 400G core network.”
