WAN Bottlenecks Easily Unclogged
Your Wide Area Network or WAN may be the bottleneck in your network
when you have significant voice or data transfer between facilities.
With lower line prices available, unclogging the WAN can cost
less than you think and can unleash higher business productivity.
Metro and Carrier Ethernet services from 10 Mbps to 1 Gbps give
you the WAN bandwidth you need.
What is Ethernet over Copper
Ethernet over Copper, or EoC, uses copper transmission lines rather
that fiber optics. T1 lines are most often used to transport mid-band
Ethernet signals in the 1 to 10 Mbps bandwidth range when provisioning
fiber optic lines is too expensive.
What's the difference between
MAN and WAN?
MAN stands for Metropolitan Area Network. MANs are set up to provide
broadband network connections within a city or metropolitan network.
WAN means Wide Area Network, a term applied to any network outside
the control of the enterprise. A MAN is a limited case of WAN.
What is PoE?
PoE means power over the Ethernet. It is a way to provide a DC
power supply over network lines to energize security cameras,
VoIP telephones, badge readers, wireless access points and other
devices that might not have an AC outlet nearby.
Will Carriers "Light Buildings"?
Some will if their closest point of presence (POP) is within a
mile or so of your location. The farther away you are, the higher
the bandwidth commitment needs to be in order to justify the carrier's
