WAVELENGTH. A. Exodus acknowledges that (i) the circuits used for the Wavelength Services are not protected by a restoration protocol within or external to the SONET frame structure, (ii) Global Crossing will not provide Wavelength Services using conventional SONET TDM add/drop multiplexers using a BLSR or UPSR or linear restoration protocol within or external to the SONET frame structure, and (iii) the interoperability of the individual circuits is dependent upon the joint interconnection of the interface between Global Crossing’s WDM system and Exodus’s source systems and facilities. Exodus’s source systems will operate within the conventional 1310nm and 1550nm passbands, using Short Reach, Intermediate Reach, or Long Reach optic, as defined in Telcordia GR-253-CORE. Except with Exodus’s prior written consent, Global Crossing will provide the Wavelength Services solely over Global Crossing’s facilities-based TDM / WDM network and fiber, equipment or other WDM service(s) owned or controlled by Global Crossing and its Affiliates.
