Qwest to upgrade business Internet network

Wow, there are many news about it on internet, well Qwest Communications International Inc. will upgrade its Internet network for businesses over the next 16 months to make it fast enough to transmit 90 mammograms per second or a two-hour movie in nine seconds.

The Denver-based telecom plans to be able to offer 100 gigabits-per-second broadband speeds to businesses and governments using Ethernet services.

The upgrades will benefit the overall Qwest network by reducing the pressure on it created by steadily increasing bandwidth consumption of businesses and individual customers.

The project should also reduce the amount of power necessary for the network, making Qwest’s network not only faster but greener, the company said.

Qwest has already started the work. The upgrades are part of an overall deeper relationship with Paris-based Alcatel-Lucent, a major supplier of network technology.

Qwest is not disclosing how much the network upgrades will cost.
