Metro Ethernet

Powered by our managed fiber network, we deliver high-speed Ethernet for connectivity to all your data, video and voice applications. Our extensive capabilities enable us to customize and design a networking solution to meet your specific need.

Full range of Ethernet Services, including:

  • Point-to-Point | Ethernet Private Line (EPL)

    Provides dedicated Ethernet connectivity between two business locations via high-speed, reliable, secure connection, even in geographically dispersed areas. Your business will be able to transmit data instantly and privately at speeds up to 10Gbps, powering critical connections, cloud-based services, and data center connectivity.

  • Point-to-Multipoint | Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)

    Provides high-speed, point-to-multipoint connectivity using multiplexed handoffs, enabling customers to use a single low cost ethernet handoff at each of their locations to interface with multiple transport services through the use of VLAN tagging. EVPLs can be used to connect multiple remote locations to a central location, combine the delivery of multiple services such as a point-to-point and a dedicated internet access (DIA), or to conveniently provide long-haul service redundancy by multiplexing the delivery of diverse circuits, all while only using a single ethernet handoff at each customer location. EVPLs are a great option for businesses with a main headquarters and multiple branch offices looking to simplify their “hub-and-spoke” WANs.

  • Managed Multisite Network | Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN)

    Provides high-speed, any-to-any connectivity. A cost effective, fast, simple, and widely customizable Ethernet solution to connect all business locations on a single network. Seamlessly transmits mission-critical applications and data across the entire network, and quickly and securely moves large amounts of data between sites. Maintain discrete pathways when you consolidate previously separate domains for specific applications or departments onto a single network. Also, a single handoff reduces network equipment and management costs.
