Metro Ethernet Set to Redefine the Internet Landscape
Metro Ethernet has been around since the 1990’s but all of a sudden, it seems to have emerged as a viable alternative for T-1 services. Why is this? More Internet users, more Internet-connected devices, more data-intensive services – all translate into the desperate need for more bandwidth, something that Metro Ethernet can deliver.
TelX Telecom, a VoIP service provider in South Florida, is thus gearing up with a new suite of Metro Ethernet systems for businesses.
Metro Ethernet, a fiber optic replacement, with uploads and downloads starting at 10Mbps and ranging up to a full Gigabit, can be used to interconnect many business locations. This can come in handy when huge volumes of data have to be transferred between various offices. It’s a sort of an internal business network that allows connection within the network and to the Internet. It’s fast, highly reliable and cost-effective.
In short, Metro Ethernet allows businesses to do a lot with less. So we find many companies graduating from T1 to Metro Ethernet, which seems to be able to tackle human beings’ insatiable appetite for “more and more bandwidth.”
Today, businesses revolve around fast and reliable Internet access and they just cannot afford to slow down operations. Guaranteed quality of service and maximum uptime are pre-requisites for Web-based applications and VoIP services.
TelX's scalable Metro-E systems, which include broadband Internet and 24/7 network monitoring, helps streamline business and workflows and transmits cabled data over the Internet quickly and efficiently.
With global traffic threatening to burst network seams and data guzzled hungrily by Internet users, the amount of bandwidth that’s likely to be needed is way beyond what T1 can handle. Metro Ethernet appears to be the savior of the hour.
TelX’s Metro Ethernet solutions not only support voice, data and video applications, but are flexible enough to accommodate future applications as businesses needs evolve. With companies replacing their outdated T1s with more cost-effective and higher bandwidth services and Metro Ethernet beginning to redefine the data landscape, TelX Telecom could well be in great demand.
