The wireless backhaul specialist PEG Bandwith is putting resources into its intercity links. This morning they announced a new, more direct 100G Ethernet route between Dallas, Texas and Jackson, MS.
The 400 mile route includes a new buildout of high fiber count cable from Monroe Louisiana across the Mississippi River, giving PEG a northern alternative to the usual fiber paths to Jackson that come out of Houston. They're using gear from Ekinops to power the deployment.
The Texas, Louisiana, and Mississipi region is one of PEG's three main markets at present. Last year they embarked on a major expansion campaign, planning to add 7,900 route miles of fiber with connectivity to 1,500 cell sites, especially in the northeast and mid-Atlantic. But they also expanded in Mississippi and into Alabama via the acquisition of Inline Networks.
