Electric Lightwave's Ethernet Services

Electric Lightwave's carrier-class Ethernet Service provides metropolitan and long haul connectivity to multiple locations. With Ethernet Services, wholesale customers can take advantage of Electric Lightwave's extensive fiber network to extend higher speed connectivity to customer locations without incurring capital build costs.

Increased Availability: services can now be delivered via Ethernet over Copper (EoC) and Ethernet over TDM (EoTDM), adding to ELI's existing capability on Fiber.

Ethernet Services are as secure as traditional private lines while providing customers with a more cost effective and flexible solution. Using Class of Service (CoS) technology, you're able to manipulate your traffic into four or eight queues and maximize underutilized bandwidth.

Electric Lightwave's initial Ethernet Services offering includes two E-Line products: Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) , point-to-point and point-to-multipoint WAN connectivity. Future enhancements of the service will include E-LAN/VPLS network configurations.
