New Jersey-based telecommunications company Spectrotel Inc. has announced the launch of its Ethernet over Fiber (EoF) offering. †EoF employs Ethernet technology to provide high-bandwidth broadband Internet access delivered over fiber optic lines.
Building upon its Fiber Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service and transparent LAN service introduced in February, Spectrotel is adding EoF to “meet the growing demand for Ethernet services.”
“Spectrotel’s metro area Ethernet providers collectively have over 25,000 lit buildings globally,” the company states in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB. “For businesses located in these lit buildings, Spectrotel can provide EoF using the Metro Fiber Network at standard service speeds of 5 Mbps to 1 Gbps.”
For SMBs not located in a “lit” building, Spectrotel provides EoF service over the Access Fiber Network, which employs the Local Exchange Company’s fiber optic infrastructure to provide standard service speeds of 10, 50 and 100 Mbps and higher speeds on an individual case basis.
Spectrotel’s Access Fiber Network is currently available in 13 LATAs on the U.S. east coast.†
“We continue to focus on broadening our product portfolio to include leading edge IP solutions to meet our customers’ increasing demand for high quality, high bandwidth IP solutions today and to provide the foundation for more sophisticated IP communications solutions of tomorrow,” states Spectrotel COO Ross Artale in the release. “Ethernet over Fiber offers the ideal technology for building resilient enterprise networks due to its standardization and flexibility.” †
