Lumen's AS3356 network

Lumen's AS3356 network is currently the number one peered network in the world, according to data from CAIDA.org, with traffic growth of 38% YoY in 2021 and 16% YoY in 2022. With the launch of the 400G IP transit ports, Lumen aims to provide content providers, hyper scalers, ISPs, wholesale, and gaming companies with a more efficient way to support the growing bandwidth demands of their customers.

In addition, the expansion can simplify and reduce the need to bundle and manage multiple lower bandwidth ports.

The Lumen HSIP Service with 400G ports is currently available in eight markets, and Lumen is aggressively expanding this capability in at least twelve additional major markets throughout the US and EMEA in 2023, with continued expansions in 2024.
