Global Crossing achieves Cisco Powered Carrier Ethernet designation


February 9, 2009

IP solutions provider Global Crossing has achieved the Cisco Powered Carrier Ethernet designation, which recognizes that the company has worked to acquire the resources and establish the procedures to deploy, manage and support Carrier Ethernet services globally.

The
designation initially applies to Global Crossing’s new EtherExtend Flex
Service, which provides customers with Ethernet access to Layer 2 and 3
data services. EtherExtend Flex already is available in North America,
Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, and is expected to be available via
more than 70 points of presence in those same regions, plus Latin
America, by the end of 2009.




The
Cisco Powered Program is Cisco’s partnering vehicle for solution
providers who offer Cisco technologies as a part of their service
offerings. A Cisco Powered designation not only acknowledges that a
service provider has invested in Cisco solutions, but also entitles the
solutions provider to take advantage of Cisco resources to envision,
build, market and sell its managed services.
