DigitalGlobe, a leading provider of commercial high-resolution earth observation and advanced geospatial solutions, will use CenturyLink's 100 Gbps Optical Wavelength Service to launch a new product allowing its customers direct access to satellite mapping data. The 100 Gbps circuit allows DigitalGlobe to transfer massive amounts of data at lightning speed from its headquarters in Longmont, Colo., to its offsite data center, where its customers will be able to access the data remotely.

"This is a significant day for the industry and for the state of Colorado. CenturyLink's deployment of commercial 100 Gbps service gives businesses bandwidth for the big data applications they need to excel," said Scott Russell, vice president and general manager for CenturyLink in Denver and Northern Colorado. "Our speed and capacity upgrades provide DigitalGlobe with an end-to-end optical network that improves efficiency and productivity. Simply put, 100 Gbps is the best the industry can offer."

As businesses respond to the bandwidth demand driven by cloud computing, mobile traffic, big data and video streaming, high-bandwidth technologies are becoming necessary for businesses to operate efficiently and competitively.
