... and it's still getting BIGGER. With recent new additions to the fiber network, the Texas Lone Star Network (TLSN) now operates over 6,225 fiber route miles lit with Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Next Generation Network capabilities in Texas and New Mexico. TLSN offers 10Gig optical wavelength, Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and SONET transport services over 3,000 fiber route miles in Texas via Cisco 15454 ONS Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP). TLSN's DWDM Network is configured in 2 large North rings (see Network Map) that mesh with the South ring at San Antonio. The north rings stretch from Dallas to Midland and the south ring stretches from San Antonio to Harlingen. The Austin - Houston, Midland - Alpine and Dallas - Longview routes are equipped with Cyan's Packet-Optical DWDM. Plateau Telecommunications (TLSN Member) has deployed Infinera DWDM and Cisco MPLS via ASR900 Routers in the Texas Panhandle (Lubbock and Amarillo) and the eastern half of New Mexico. TLSN provides Carrier Ethernet services via Cisco’s Xponder technology, Cyan's Packet-Optical capabilities and Plateau's MPLS Network. TLSN's Layer 2 & 3 Ethernet switching functionality provides ring protection, where available and aggregation across the network. With the deployment of 3 Cisco ASR 9000 Routers in a 10G ring from Dallas to San Antonio to Midland and back to Dallas, TLSN is now equipped for Layer 3 services, IP/MPLS and VPN. TLSN offers Ethernet and IP solutions at more POP sites than anyone else.
