He added, “Over the past seven years capacity demand has increased more than 60-fold as services have moved from voice and low-speed data to high-speed broadband. Carriers have also been looking to replace capacity on older submarine cable systems with capacity on the latest generation of optical fibre cables such as ours, FLAG Atlantic-1 (FA-1). This may not yet be the market upturn many have been forecasting but it is an encouraging migration to quality.”
FLAG Telecom owns and manages an extensive optical fibre network spanning four continents and connecting key business markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the US. It also owns and operates a low latency global MPLS based IP network, which connects most of the world’s principal international Internet exchanges. FLAG’s customer base of more than 180 leading operators includes all of the top ten international carriers. FLAG proactively monitors network performance levels to deliver industry-leading SLAs and immediately switches customer traffic onto diverse paths in the event of any network problem or failure. Restoration of protected services is consistently achieved faster than on competitive systems, particularly where FLAG also owns and staffs the cable landing stations, as is the case with FA-1.
FLAG’s cable network spans the globe and the company has an acknowledged reputation for a centralised end to end network management underpinned by exceptional quality and service support.
