COMLINK has successfully provided one of the first dedicated, point-to-point 100G managed service connection for a carrier customer on COMLINK's fiber optic network in the state of Michigan.

Network, voice and cloud service provider COMLINK announced today that it has provided the first dedicated, point-to-point 100G managed service connection for a carrier customer on COMLINK's fiber optic network. The deployment is also one of the first such network paths of this next-generation capacity to be provided in the state of Michigan.

COMLINK was able to provision the link for the customer in less than six weeks.

"This is the largest capacity circuit turned up by COMLINK, and one of the few in the state," said Bill Goodfellow, VP of Network for COMLINK. "The customer will benefit because they will be able to transport huge amounts of data faster and more efficiently rather than using multiple 10G or 1G circuits."
