Central Office Access
Available from Sidera Networks
Sidera’s Central Office (CO) Access Service provides wholesale, high-bandwidth SONET private line connectivity to key Incumbent Local Exchange Carrier (ILEC) COs for carriers and service providers serving the enterprise market. SONET private lines can support multiple service types including voice, data and internet access. Sidera offers SONET private line connectivity from OC-3 through OC-48 as well as electrical DS1s and DS-3s.
Carriers can connect to Sidera from their colocation within the CO or order ILEC services directly to the Sidera presence in the CO at the DS-3 level and above for virtual colocation. Sidera’s CO Access Service is ideal for carriers and service providers who want to:
Aggregate traffic from their presence in the CO over Sidera’s fully protected SONET/DWDM network
Create a virtual presence in a CO by utilizing Sidera’s presence to aggregate traffic back to a central location/carrier hotel
Cross Local Access and Transport Area (LATA) boundaries with aggregated traffic via a single carrier
