Ethernet over Fibre (EoFTTC)
Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet is provided by copper from your business premises over the short distance to the green cabinets in the street. Unlike standard broadband where the copper then continues all the way to the exchange, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet traffic travels across a shared fibre optic circuit to the exchange. As a result, the extra distance doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation of performance, which allows access to up to 20Mbps symmetrical speed with the additional boost downstream making a total of 76Mbps downstream bandwidth.
This provides an Ethernet type service, without the expense, whilst offering great UK wide coverage that’s more often available in residential areas.
Ethernet over Fibre is ideal for both Internet and MPLS IP VPN services. Often chosen for its speedy transfers of large data files as well as running simultaneous applications like SIP, video conferencing and real-time business applications.
