Simple, affordable, scalable, and reliable bandwidth solutions for private networks

Ethernet has become the industry standard for Local Area Networks (LAN) ethernet servicesas well as carrier-based Wide Area Networks (WAN) and offers multiple provider-based Layer 2 options. Ethernet gives the user the ability to add their own Layer 3 services and customizations such as VPN, QoS, Private IP Addressing and more. Ethernet service is standard across every provider world-wide, which allows multi-site and even multi-national organizations to easily integrate every location onto a single network.
