BurstNET has recently completed an upgrade of our CTSI transport circuit between Scranton and Philadelphia to OC48 (2048mbps) capacity. This circuit was previously at OC12 (622mbps) capacity prior to the upgrade. CTSI provides a dual-path sonet ring based transport circuit to BurstNET, for the highest possible redundancy.
