Gigabit Ethernet (GbE)
Data Transfer Rates of 1,000 Mbps per Second
Enterprises in industries of all types are increasingly turning to Gigabit Ethernet Services to respond and adapt to today’s on-demand business environment. The advent of nationwide Gigabit Optical Fiber allows businesses of all sizes to cost-effectively scale networks to fit changing communications requirements, improve employee productivity, and increase marketplace competitiveness. Previously, enterprises with multi-point, high-demand networks were forced to use Frame Relay, ATM and private line services for their WAN transport, to ensure reliability and capacity. Large business can now replace expensive T1 and fractional DS3 pipes with a cost-effective and scalable alternative: Ethernet WAN over Gigabit Fiber.
What does Gigabit Ethernet Service offer the enterprise customer? Increased productivity, since employees aren’t waiting for unresponsive ‘cloud’ applications to launch, or for files to download. A highly responsive network that allows multiple users to run multiple applications at the same time with low delay, low latency, and minimal downtime. The ability to reduce costs while staying competitive with advanced technology like Software as a Service, streaming video, and VoIP with Quality of Service guarantees. And as the enterprise grows, and the demand for higher bandwidth with performance SLA’s grows, Gigabit Ethernet Service Providers can scale up an Ethernet WAN remotely – and much faster than T1, DSL or even cable broadband connections.
The same advantages that made the Ethernet LAN nearly ubiquitous in business apply to the Gigabit Ethernet Broadband WAN, no matter the size or configuration of the network: inexpensive CPE, bandwidth-efficient MPLS transport protocol, simple scalability, and versatile networking features. Enterprises with a multiple-node network can now implement an end-to-end Ethernet solution by replacing DSL or cable broadband with Ethernet over Copper in a home office, for example, or exchanging P2P T1 private lines for Ethernet Private Lines that can scale up as needed. The 100 Gigabit speed of a Gigabit Ethernet Fiber network means there’s no risk of oversubscription or perceptible downtime – a necessity for the enterprise-level network. Ethernet Gigabit Service offers the large enterprise the opportunity to cost-effectively transition away from legacy transport – T1, bonded T1, DS3 – while maintaining network quality, availability and performance.
