City-spanning connectivity you can count on
Larger than a LAN (Local Area Network) and smaller than a WAN (Wide Area Network), Metro Ethernet is an ideal connectivity solution for city-spread offices. This is high-speed connectivity that you can rely on for maximum uptime, so use it for moving data, video conferencing, cloud services and more. It won’t let you down.
Advantages of Metro Ethernet
Lower equipment and maintenence costs compared to more expensive and often slower synchronous solutions.
Dedicated support services
You’ll have a single point of support for queries and requests.
100% transparency on Ethernet circuits
Consolidate multiple remote Ethernet networks into one big network.
Service resilience and redundancy options
You choose how you want the network to react in the unlikely event of a system failure.
Enable a Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) to separate users into individual network segments.
Bandwidth options from 10Mbps to 10Gbps+
Easy to flex when demand changes and easy to budget with the knowledge of all the fixed costs up front. You’ll only ever pay for the bandwidth you need.
Enabler of additional services such as Internet, VoIP and cloud applications
Think of Metro Ethernet as the foundation for layers of lots of lovely applications that can help make your business run better.
