mammoth networks completes ip core upgradeMammoth Networks has announced completion of an Internet Protocol upgrade within their network core. The new equipment, provided by Redback Networks, expands the company's ability to service its Service Provider Partners, and enables the company to deliver data solutions centered around the newest IP technologies.
Powered by the Redback SmartEdge router, Mammoth is able to support Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), marrying its ATM aggregation with its IP network. Mammoth can now implement such services as Managed and Multi-Site VPN, Quality of Service (QoS) and Virtual Leased Line services. These services are handed to Mammoth's Service Provider Partners for resale to their clientele, which may include large business and enterprise customers who have a desire for simplified wide area networks.
"This has been a great quarter for us," says Brian Worthen, who heads up product development at Mammoth. "The Redback gear allows us to tailor services for our Partners and will strengthen our carrier services while supporting our middle-mile focus."
Mammoth's upgrade propels the company into niche status as a Service Provider's Service Provider. Mammoth's private line and ATM product provides Partners with access to a company that combines middle-mile solutions with carrier class services. The company has developed this niche by focusing on service delivery using more traditional circuits such as ATM and Frame Relay, and combining them with Metro Ethernet and IP-based services.
The upgrades at Mammoth's IP core expands the company's capacity to 192,000 subscribers. The company currently can support 54,000 data loops on its private network, and continues to expand circuit volume and size to meet demand, most recently completing an OC3 ring connecting their network cores. The company operates network cores in Billings MT, Casper WY, Denver CO, and Seattle WA, with a tertiary core in Phoenix AZ.
Mammoth Networks is an aggregator of data services serving eleven Western states. Mammoth's footprint reaches more than 745 cities and towns, and almost 12,000 subdivisions and business parks. Mammoth enables its Partners by erasing the invisible lines of the telecommunications structure, and leveling the playing field for Internet Service Providers. The privately-held company is based in Gillette, Wyoming.
