ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After 24 months of aggressive initiatives to build out its own fiber connectivity as well as partner with key industry players for additional fiber and EFM connectivity,
Cbeyond Inc. (Nasdaq:CBEY), the technology ally to small and mid-sized businesses, today announced it has the capability to reach more than 190,000 multi-tenant buildings across the nation – one of the largest Metro Ethernet serving areas available. All Cbeyond markets—including, for the first time, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Seattle—now have access to a much broader Metro Ethernet footprint which reaches triple the number of buildings previously served. These markets can now also offer up to 100 Mbps of network connectivity to businesses poised to embrace Cloud computing services.
TotalNetwork™ Metro Ethernet service, Cbeyond now offers improved market coverage, faster speeds and better service delivery across its entire 14-city metropolitan service area which includes Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Washington D.C.
The expansion in the number of addressable buildings and growth in bandwidth capabilities ranging from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps represent immediate access to high-speed, symmetric bandwidth for current and prospective Cbeyond customers.
Cbeyond's Metro Ethernet access platform and services encompass a variety of Fiber and EFM access technologies which provide SMBs with scalable, reliable, high-capacity networking at low cost. Cbeyond Metro Ethernet features:
Secure, dedicated circuits with speeds up to 100 Mbps
Symmetric upload and download speeds
Support for analog, digital (CAS or PRI), SIP and hosted PBX phone systems
Network security and monitoring 24x7x365
An automated trouble response system
As all businesses, regardless of size, need to work with their Cloud-based enterprise applications and data in real-time, they require high bandwidth both upstream and downstream—symmetric bandwidth— a need that shared asymmetric access technologies like cable do not meet.
"Cbeyond's Metro Ethernet network expansion is a game changer: it triples our Metro Ethernet footprint, provides a huge boost in coverage and speed, and empowers our entire sales force in all markets with the high-speed symmetrical network bandwidth to sell our TotalCloud and TotalAssist services on a massive scale," said Vince Zappa, vice president, Product Management, Network Services with Cbeyond.
