Adoption of Ethernet in the WAN market has grown substantially in recent years. MPLS and other prominent WAN technologies are certainly feeling the pressure in spite of dramatic reduction in prices for T-1 lines (i.e., $150 to $400 per month). This rapid adoption rate is fueled by rapidly growing demand for bandwidth. Switched Ethernet drives last mile bandwidth price down to near $5-$15 per megabit per second (Mbps), compared to $100-$200 per Mbps of T-1 or MPLS. With speeds ranging from as little as 10Mbps to as high as 10Gbps and high end SLA’s switched Ethernet Service is suitable for demanding business voice, data and video applications. The service can be delivered over fiber-optic and/or electrical (copper) handoff. Switched Ethernet Service today is a scalable and affordable first choice service for mission critical applications.
