An Ethernet service will help your business to transport a substantial amount of data at a high speed from one or multiple points. Fast Ethernet is a commonly used form of LAN Internet that works at high speeds of 100 Megabits per second. In 1999 Gigabit Ethernet was introduced to the main stream. This type of line works at even greater speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second on average and will soon make the Fast Ethernet service obsolete.
There are a variety of Ethernet providers who can service your business and you should think about choosing the right carrier for your Ethernet services. They will all have slightly different technologies but you will need to consider primarily bandwidth and price. It is good to make a list of all your necessary business needs when you are considering an Ethernet provider. You should consider whether you have multiple locations to service or if you have point to point data to transfer. It is good to decide if you need MLPS or just basic Metro Ethernet and to consider the cost of setting it up.
A Metro Ethernet is an Ethernet service that uses a LAN line to service a metropolitan district. It connects many users to the Internet and makes use of the backbone of a LAN connection and wide area connections. It is used by businesses to connect to their various offices. It enables data to be sent at higher speeds and allows fast internet service.
The reach of Metro Ethernet services can be very large. For example the Hong Kong Broadband Network services up to 2 million users. The Verizon network Ethernet providers in the US has implemented a large network to cover the Asia Pacific region.
There were a few problems with using an Ethernet service for larger areas. It was originally set up to service fairly local areas but now technology has moved forward to expand into larger areas. Link aggregation is now being used to join more than one Ethernet line to expand its reach.
Another problem was the transportation of large amounts of data. Gigabit Ethernet is the faster edition of the Ethernet, with 1,000 Mbit’s a second. It is the answer to companies that have a lot of data and use quite a bit of bandwidth. This system is also very cost effective when compared with other systems.
