NEW YORK – Verizon has deployed 100G technology on its network in Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong, connecting these three locations and further extending 100G technology on the Verizon global network. This deployment, which used the Fujitsu Flashwave 9500 ROADM and Ciena 5430 Reconfigurable Switching System, added approximately 11,681 terrestrial and submarine miles (18,800 kilometers) to the company’s extensive 100G network. These additional miles add to the more than 32,000 100G miles already deployed on Verizon’s U.S. network and 8,500 100G miles on its European network.
Verizon enterprise cloud has been scheduled for a maintenance outage later this week which could result in the supplier being offline for up to 48 hours. The planned outage, which is planned to commence on Saturday at 5pm ADST (1AM US EST), will provide the company the opportunity to undertake a major platform upgrade. One US-based Verizon customer who contacted support for further advice was told that the outage would affect all cloud instances and that no VMs would be accessible during the maintenance window.
