Clearfly Communications to Avail 360network's EVPL Service


July 08, 2011

According to a recent announcement made by Private Line Transport, Ethernet, IP, VoIP and Local Access service provider 360networks, Clearfly Communications, a provider of unified communications to the small and medium business community in underserved suburban markets, has selected its Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) service in support of end user needs between Billings and Seattle.

The officials from 360networks said its EVPL service, a fully mesh-protected service for ubiquitous connectivity between carrier hotels, data centers, Internet exchanges, and neutral peering points across the company's entire 18,500 route mile footprint, will enable Clearfly to gain a more scalable, cost effective and protected connectivity alternative with EVPL vs. traditional TDM and other legacy solutions. 360networks's EVPL eliminates the mileage associated with traditional private line services. Customers instead pay a monthly recurring charge per port in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations.

"In addition to the reliability and cost savings, we also like that we can quickly add channels on the Billings end of the circuit," said Chris Hunter, chief marketing officer for Clearfly Communications, in a press release. "360's flexible, pay-as-you-grow model fits well with our need to efficiently keep pace with our end users' requirements." 360networks developed EVPL for communication service providers, Internet service providers (ISPs), cloud infrastructure and storage providers, co-location providers, content providers, content distribution networks, cable MSOs, and others who need high performance SLA based, Layer 2 networking solutions.

"We are excited that customers like Clearfly see the benefits of our EVPL service and are deploying it as part of their networking solution," said Mike Kozlowski, director of product management for Ethernet services at 360networks. "Our EVPL is a carrier class service providing flexible Ethernet connectivity between major metropolitan areas and unique markets throughout our footprint so customers can efficiently grow their network into our markets to meet growing demand from their customers."
