Comcast Broadens Its Business Class Solutions Provider Program

New solutions provider partners are added in order to bring Metro Ethernet solutions to SMBs looking to “increase productivity and lower costs through a high-performance network.”

New solutions provider partners are added in order to bring Metro Ethernet solutions to SMBs looking to “increase productivity and lower costs through a high-performance network.”

With the goal of providing a greater number of SMBs with access to Ethernet services, Comcast Corp. has expanded its Comcast Business Class Solutions Provider Program with so-called “Metro Ethernet” services.

According to Comcast, Ethernet-based services are poised for big growth, especially as “more mid-sized businesses utilize bandwidth-intensive applications, such as cloud computing, business continuity, and Software-as-a-Service.”

Comcast Broadens Its Business Class Solutions Provider Program

“Ethernet services will continue to grow as organizations look to streamline the cost and performance of their wide area networks,” Comcast states in a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB.

By broadening its network of solution provider partners, Comcast is hoping its partners will be “a key asset for bringing Metro Ethernet solutions to mid-sized businesses looking to increase productivity and lower costs through a high-performance network.”

Comcast Business Services’ new Solutions Provider Partners include:

METRO ETHERNET
Comcast’s Metro Ethernet services offer SMBs a performance increase over such legacy technologies as T1 lines, Frame Relay, and ATM. Comcast Metro Ethernet enables scaling in increments ranging from 1 Mbps up to 10 Gigabits-per-second Gbps with three different classes of service.

In May 2011, Comcast announced its Metro Ethernet offering, which is now delivered using its fiber optic network. Comcast Metro Ethernet solutions are certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum to meet MEF 9, 14 and 18 requirements, which are industry standards for reliability and performance.

Comcast provides four unique Metro Ethernet Services:

  • Ethernet Dedicated Internet Service — Continuous, high bandwidth connectivity between the customers’ LAN and the public Internet.
  • Ethernet Private Line Service — Point to point connectivity between two sites for bandwidth intensive applications.
  • Ethernet Virtual Private Line Service — A point to multipoint connection that supports a Multiplexed User Network Interface (UNI).
  • Ethernet Network Service — Multipoint to multipoint connectivity to connect organizations with high bandwidth requirements and many locations across a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)
