Allstream today announced the latest offering within its Data Network services portfolio: Ethernet Private Line.

The offering provides one Gigabit per second (1 Gbps)connectivity within and between Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, with more locations planned for later in 2004.

The service is designed to meet the demanding performance needs of applications such as server aggregation, synchronous database mirroring, voice over IP, data centre connectivity, multi-campus workgroups, data warehousing and high performance applications.

Sufficient network diversity is essential for business continuity, the company said.

Ethernet Private Line is the first in a line of Optical services which uses Allstream’s Multiservice Access Platform. Additional services to be rolled out shortly include Storage Area Network (SAN) channel service, Gigabit Internet, and High Bandwidth VLAN service.
