Verizon rolling out 100Gbps to improve video streaming

Verizon says they will roll out 100Gbps in selected market segments including Chicago to New York, Sacramento to Los Angeles and Minneapolis to Kansas City. The 100Gbps network will be the first in the U.S. and will launch by the end of the second quarter.

“We’ve already successfully deployed 100G on a portion of our European network, and now we’re preparing to expand this technology to our U.S. network,” said Ihab Tarazi, vice president of network planning at Verizon.

According to Verizon, the 100Gbps speed will improve video streaming, online video gaming, and cloud-based applications.

The backbone will use Juniper Networks routers and Ciena’s 100G coherent optical transport solution which were also used in Europe when Verizon deployed 100Gbps early this year. new equipment will allow Verizon’s bandwidth to carry up to 10 times the amount of data as standard.
