Having achieved service in 700 Central Offices (COs) nationwide, MegaPath is now the largest provider of on-net Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) services in the United States. Other companies might take the opportunity to rest on their laurels, but not MegaPath.
Instead, we’ve followed up our EoC expansion with the introduction of Ethernet ESA. Ethernet ESA offers an off-net nationwide footprint and bandwidth ranging from 2.0 Mbps to 1.0 Gbps. Whether you’re replacing your existing T1 or need a high-bandwidth solution to meet your growing business needs, MegaPath Ethernet ESA has it all.
The MegaPath Ethernet Portfolio consists of Core Service Area (CSA) / On-Net and Extended Service Area (ESA) / Off-Net services listed below.
|Bandwidth||Service Area||Footprint (COs)|
|Ethernet over Copper (EoC)||2 - 45 Mbps||CSA / On-Net||700**|
|Ethernet over DS1 (EoDS1)||2 - 12 Mbps||CSA / On-Net||700**|
|Ethernet over DS3 (EoDS3)*||44 Mbps||CSA / On-Net||700**|
|Asymmetric Ethernet (AsyE)||8/1 - 50/10 Mbps||CSA / On-Net||700**|
|Ethernet ESA||2 Mbps - 1 Gbps||ESA / Off-Net||Nationwide|
**Please contact your account representative for a complete list of CSA / On-net COs for exact locations and counts.
The adoption of Voice over IP, streaming video, remote connectivity, cloud services, and other data-intensive business applications often brings a need for more bandwidth. Consider these advantages of Business Ethernet service and compare for yourself:
Our privately managed, secure and scalable network provides last-mile connectivity and redundancy. With coverage to 240 major US metropolitan markets, the MegaPath network can be leveraged to deliver revenue-generating voice, video, and data application services for partners and end users alike.
CSA / On-Net
The MegaPath on-net Ethernet network consists of 700 COs nationwide and uses the Adtran TA-5000 allowing support for both legacy and emerging service interfaces over copper. This pure Ethernet core easily scales to support even the most bandwidth-intensive business applications. Layer 2 and Layer 3 (BIA/DIA) services are available.
Services Include: Ethernet over Copper, Ethernet over DS1, Ethernet over DS3, and Asymmetric Ethernet.
ESA / Off-Net
The MegaPath off-net Ethernet network offers of a nationwide footprint and provides customers the option to connect with either Layer 2 or Layer 3 (BIA/DIA) access services with various bandwidth options between 2 Mbps and 1 Gbps at off-net locations. The access services provided are delivered over various technologies including Ethernet over Copper and Ethernet over Fiber. The specific technology used for service delivery and its scalability vary depending on the service speed selected.
Services Include: Ethernet ESA.
