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.

Other Fiber Service Options

Alpheus provides many fiber network solutions that can be customized to meet the bandwidth requirements of your business including Managed Dark Fiber and Fiber Last-Mile Services.
