Ethernet

Highly Scalable and Reliable Business Broadband

ETHERNET OVERVIEW

Can your current network meet the considerable demands of your growing business? Expansion of locations locally or nationally are critical to the success of your business plan.  Employees at remote locations need access to the same mission critical applications that employees at the company HQ need.  The bandwidth needs of your business fluctuate depending on a number of factors, which can cause serious problems if not addressed.

IT staff within your organization must have the specialized skills to manage this network and the changing requirements.  This all needs to be done within your budget, which is always a challenge.  Ethernet can be a great solution  for connectivity requirements of growing and far reaching enterprises.

Superior Support 24x7x365

Ethernet Technology Ethernet is different than a Bonded T1 connection because it uses a loop-bonding technology, while T1s use a link-bonding technology. Although both are effective, loop-bonding is a newer technology that reduces overhead and deals with loop failure more efficiently. That means more bandwidth remains available for applications and your connection is less likely to suffer if one loop fails.

IP Addresses Includes a block of 8 static IP addresses.
