Efficient bandwidth through Optical Wavelength Service
CenturyLink Optical Wavelength Service, based on wave division multiplexing technology, enables streams of digital information to be placed upon different wavelengths of light without interference between these streams. This allows transport up to 96 channels in a single fiber strand and translates into higher network capacity for high-speed bandwidth solutions and greater cost efficiencies.
Seamless, Dedicated Connection With CenturyLink’s Private Line Service (PLS), your Agency will enjoy dedicated duplex transmission connectivity between two or more designated end points. CenturyLink’s PLS will give your Agency a managed, fully interoperable, and scalable suite of services. CenturyLink’s PLS utilizes the CenturyLink four fiber SONET Bi-Directional Line-Switched Ring (BLSR) network to provide a highly reliable transport from sub-DS0 up through OC-192. CenturyLink’s PLS seamlessly carries a variety of protocols, including ATM, Frame Relay, IP, and Ethernet, and delivers these services transparently from end to end.
Integrated, Secure, Reliable Delivery CenturyLink provides a VPNS that is integrated, secure, reliable, and delivered through a multiservice unified IP-enabled network, providing scalable bandwidth transported on an underlying intelligent, protected DWDM backbone.
