Managed Waves

Metro and Regional Wavelength Services

If your business needs to move huge volumes of data, quickly and over long distances, it’s enough to make a private fiber connection worth considering. But what if you don’t want to invest in the expensive equipment or “do-it-yourself” engineering and maintenance that come with leasing dark fiber? The sensible alternative is a managed wavelength service, which gives your company extremely high, dedicated optical bandwidth in a simpler and budget-friendly configuration with bandwidth levels from 1 to 10 Gbps and beyond.

With Managed Waves from Alpheus, you maintain the freedom to run multiple applications – data, voice, and video – in their native protocols, scale bandwidth easily as your needs evolve, and leave the complex network management tasks to us.

Leverage Alpheus’ Managed Waves Service to:

  • Establish a high-bandwidth fiber connection (point-to-point) between distant locations such as headquarters and a data center.
  • Achieve a cost-effective alternative to lighting and managing dark fiber.
  • Implement load sharing with two point-to-point connections.
  • Deploy diversely routed fiber pairs for redundancy and business continuity applications.
  • Manage various applications over a single fiber wavelength with no need to replace equipment when your needs change.
  • Interconnect with other services such as E-Line, MPLS and Dedicated Internet Access.

The Alpheus Advantage:

  • Efficiency: Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology enables maximum bandwidth for the lowest cost.
  • Flexibility: Managed Waves service supports all major networking protocols (ATM, Frame Relay, SONET, Ethernet and IP) and interfaces with SONET or Gigabit Ethernet.
  • Scalability: Move easily between bandwidth options from 1 to 10 Gbps. Bandwidth beyond 10 Gbps is available by multiplexing waves onto a single pair of fiber for redundant, load sharing, diversely routed fiber pairs.
  • Security: Choose between protected, unprotected, or load sharing (physically diverse) configurations.
  • Professional support: Count on 24/7 network monitoring and technical assistance.
