Ethernet is the most widely installed local area network (LAN) technology and is one of the most common computer-networking components. The standardisation of this technology has created some of the easiest and most reliable ways to efficiently access information. An important asset in the quest to achieve a competitive advantage in today’s business world.

Network technologies can be classified as belonging to one of two basic groups. Local Area Network (LAN) technologies connect many devices that are relatively close to each other, usually in the same building and Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies connect a smaller number of devices that can be many miles apart.In comparison to WANs, LANs are faster and more reliable.

EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet)”:/products/ethernet/eofttc.php is the next generation on from Fibre Broadband, offering superfast broadband with non-contended lines and guaranteed fix SLA’s. This product is ideal for businesses for whom 24/7 access to the internet is critical, at a constant bandwidth but at a competitive price.

Ethernet in the first mile refers to using one of the Ethernet family of computer network protocols between a telecommunications company and a customer’s premises and is a cost-effective way to advance to a high-capacity connection without committing to full fibre Ethernet.

Ethernet Dedicated Internet Access combines the reliability and familiarity of Ethernet access to your location with the ability to reach your customers, employees or anyone in the world via the web. This is a scalable solution that can quickly and easily expand to meet your company’s growing bandwidth requirements, with scalable Ethernet Speeds from 10MB to 10000MB (10GB).

Multi-Protocol Label Switching brings many additional benefits. It improves uptime, increases bandwidth utilisation, reduces network congestion, ensures quality of service and improves network scalability.This is why MPLS is widely used by the major telecoms companies. It’s also very popular with organisations that need a scalable WAN that can carry both voice (phone calls) and data.

The Benefits of Upgrading From FTTC to EoFTTC
One of the more recent developments in data connectivity is EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet). EoFTTC utilises a FTTC (Fibre Broadband) connection to deliver an Ethernet grade service with dedicated, uncontended bandwidth. This means upgrading from regular broadband to a business grade connection can now be achieved at a substantially lower cost in comparison to other forms of dedicated connectivity like Ethernet over Fibre or EFM.
