Big network upgrade news from North Georgia Networks (NGN) this morning.
The member-owned cooperative, which operates more than 1,600 miles of fiber optic infrastructure in North Georgia, has upgraded capacity for its core fiber optic network to 100 Gigabits. This new capacity on its Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network, increases capabilities for the broadband superhighway that NGN built across the state of Georgia.
NGN executed the network upgrade in response to increased customer demand for higher bandwidth circuits and additional wavelengths from its nearly 8,000 subscribers (Including residential, small business and carrier clients across North Georgia). The upgrade enhances NGN’s world-class services and will help NGN fulfill growing demand for carriers throughout the region.
Operating under a unique model, NGN is a corporation of cooperatives owned by its members, which include Habersham Electric Membership Corporation, Blue Ridge Mountain Electric Membership Corporation and NGN Connect. NGN offers resilient communication services over its core MPLS network, including wavelengths (1, 10, 40 and 100Gbps), Ethernet, along with dark fiber solutions and colocation.
