Metro Ethernet: The Future of Bandwidth Growth

Metro Ethernet is the Future of Bandwidth Growth

Reliable network infrastructure and services are becoming integral to the success of today’s businesses. This has become a high demand business need with the growth of network-based applications, cloud computing, and big data. In a North Bridge Venture Partners research survey, 75 percent of responding businesses reported using a cloud platform last year.

The growth of these new business applications and services requires faster and more reliable network infrastructures. Because of its high speed and low latency, Ethernet operating on a fiber optic network infrastructure is one of the leading business Internet solutions. In fact, Vertical Systems Group predicts that by 2017, Ethernet will account for more than 75 percent of total global business bandwidth.

Metro Ethernet can extend Ethernet LAN (local area network) over your WAN (wide area network), connecting each of your users with safe, secure, business-class fiber optic speed. The features of Metro Ethernet allow businesses to have similarly high levels of services, but do not require the business to have dedicated infrastructure in place, making it a cost-effective service solution.

Is Metro Ethernet right for your business?

Metro Ethernet is ideal for businesses that have:

  1. Multiple locations within the Pittsburgh metro area
  2. Non-stop mission critical Internet needs
  3. Unified communication and data connectivity
  4. High bandwidth and real-time scalability needs

The future of Ethernet in mission-critical business applications is expected to expand. By 2018, the global market for Ethernet services will exceed $62 billion.

Businesses are adopting Ethernet services more than ever. It offers scalability, reliability, and cost-efficient bandwidth capabilities.
