Our Metro Ethernet backhaul product is a highly cost-effective and efficient mechanism to connect two locations within the same region (ie, city) via point-to-point Ethernet.

The M247 Metro Ethernet service is generally deployed as an ‘MPLS Pseudowire’, with an easy-to-deal-with layer 2 Ethernet interface presentation. The service has full ‘q-in-q’ VLAN tagging support and can be visualised simply as one long Ethernet cable end to end.

We include route protection over our multiple backbone routes, resulting in a highly reliable service and generous SLA terms.

This highly cost-effective service is available at any of our on-net locations and in a choice of capacities including: 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 100Gbps – as well as fractional 10/100Gbps.
