World_GlobeSITUATION
A leading content provider needed to create a global content network. Additionally, the provider needed this to be tested in 32 sites in North America, South America, Europe and Asia to offset the economic costs of the services that would be needed to create a global network. The provider needed to better understand the economics of using SONET, wavelength and dark fiber services for this project. To design a network solution and business case for metro, intercity and intercontinental fiber-based transport, Internet peering locations, collocation facilities and required transport network equipment needed to be examined to support long-range capacity and data center plans for this leading Internet and media content company.

SOLUTION
Apcela reviewed the 32 sites across North America, South America, Europe, and Asia to determine economics of using SONET, wavelength and dark fiber networks to reach each designated site. Apcela then identified tier-one Internet peering points and collocation facilities in 22 cities and then created preliminary fiber network ring designs to connect all of the facilities. This was followed up with Apcela establishing business case inputs for optical transport equipment and management services, SONET, wavelength and dark fiber services.

RESULTS
Apcela provided the customer with an end-to-end network design and architecture based on business case recommendations. This information was used to manage the procurement and integration of all SONET, wavelength and dark fiber services and to help build the fiber network extensions to interconnect, off-net facilities with the core network fiber rings. Once the networks were completed, Apcela created ways to manage the engineering, deployment and installation of all the optical transport as well as the end-to-end test, acceptance and turn-up of the network. Additionally, Apcela provided all routine and emergency maintenance across all network expansion projects and 24x7x365, emergency dispatch with two-hour, on-site response for fault isolation and resolution.
