Sharing Business Broadband
Even smaller businesses can have high performance dedicated Internet
access by splitting the cost of a fiber optic Ethernet connection
with other businesses in their building or business park.
Carrier Ethernet is Available
Carrier Ethernet Services are already available in major metropolitan
areas from competitive carriers such as XO Communications. You
can order 10 Mbps Ethernet, 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet or Gigabit
Ethernet connections to match your current network bandwidth.
What does flooding mean?
Flooding is a Ethernet process whereby switches that do not know
the destination for data packets they receive send that data to
all ports and wait for a reply to discover the actual address.
How does managed security work?
Companies that specialize in network security install VPNs and
managed firewalls that they remotely monitor from a network operations
center. A dedicated security team that specializes in knowing
what threats are out there, when they are coming for your network
and what to do to mitigate the threat provides the vigilance for
a multitude of clients.
What is Ethernet over Fiber?
Ethernet over Fiber or EoF means transporting Ethernet protocol
signals over metro distance or long haul circuits, using IP protocol
networks. Your interface is a standard Ethernet jack from the
carrier supplied premesis equipment.
