Ethernet Service & Leased Lines
Ethernet is a broad term used to describe Leased Line Services, or Private Circuits. Leased Lines are essentially service contracts that provide guaranteed symmetric connectivity speeds between two sites. In most cases, one site will be Telehouse Docklands, London, and the other will be the customer site. Point to point circuits are different from this, as they connect two customer sites directly.
Leased Lines are popular as they provide a guaranteed service, in terms of bandwidth availability, symmetric speeds, unlimited data usage, and 100% uptime. These guarantees allow businesses to utilise higher-bandwidth, often business-critical services without worrying about downtime or service levels.
EFM Circuits are our most common circuit type, due to their reasonably low cost, service guarantee, and guaranteed bandwidth range. EFM circuits can be provided as a 2-pair or 4-pair solution, each with a guaranteed bandwidth range. EFM circuits are generally limited by their bandwidth capability, which is usually 14-20Mb/s.
MIA or DIA circuits are capable of much higher bandwidth availability than EFM circuits. These circuits begin at 10Mb/s over 100Mb/s, where the 10Mb/s relates to the bandwidth being provided (etherflow), and the 100Mb/s relates to the bandwidth that the circuit is capable of being upgraded to (etherway). While these are our lowest speeds, we can provide with etherflows and etherways of up to 1Gb/
A Professional Connection
The Ethernet Service is offered as a fully symmetrical service, so you get the same lightning-fast speed on both upload and download. It also provides guaranteed bandwidth, ultra-low latency, and speeds from 10 Mb/s up to 1Gb/s.
Leased Line Features
The features of an Ethernet Service include:
- Dedicated leased line
- Speeds from 10 Mb/s to 1Gb/s
- 100% fibre connection
- Ultra-low latency
- Fully symmetrical service
- 24x7x365 monitoring
- Flexible packages, customised to suit your business
- Free UK-based support teams
- Competitive leased line pricing structure
Ethernet circuits are generally activated within 45 working days of a successful site survey.
