Toronto Hydro Telecom unveils Canada's first fully managed wavelength data service



    Managed Wave simplifies data networking for customers by consolidating
    services on one communication system

    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro Telecom today announced its
Managed Wave service that allows enterprises to cost effectively converge
network services, including wide-area networking and storage-area networking,
on one unified, scalable architecture.
    As Canada's only fully managed end to end, optical switched data service,
Managed Wave travels over a protected, resilient, carrier-class, fibre
network. Designed to support transfer speed up to 10 Gbps, the Managed Wave
solution is fully redundant, and offers options for circuit-specific
protection enhancements, so customers can be assured that their data will
always reach its destination. Toronto Hydro Telecom operates and manages all
of the equipment required - including the dense wave division multiplexing
(DWDM) network systems - simplifying data networking for customers and
offering 24x7x365 proactive network monitoring.
    "The amount of business information generated is growing daily, and
companies need flexible networking solutions to support the important data
they send and receive," says David Dobbin, president of Toronto Hydro Telecom.
"Our Managed Wave service offers companies a way to centralize network
management and provide secure, scalable and reliable network access."
    Unlike many wavelength solutions provided by other communications
providers, Managed Wave works with many third-party systems. For customers
that already own DWDM equipment this protects the client's investment,
supporting future data-transmission requirements that grow in line with
business needs.
    "Canadian organizations are looking for a way to simplify their services
while maintaining all of their communication links - and they don't want to
spend a fortune to get it," says Iain Grant, SeaBoard Group. "The Managed Wave
service answers that call with resiliency, security and cost effectiveness
built into the solution."

    
    Application Support

    Managed Wave supports a wide range of applications, including:

    -   Timing sensitive and critical high security applications
    -   Data access and management
    -   Computer-aided design
    -   Video streaming
    -   Business continuity and disaster recovery
    -   Storage-area networking
    -   Virtual environments established between partners and vendors
    -   Image transmission and processing
    -   LAN Interconnection
    -   Multiple Legacy Applications concurrently on one wave
