MegaPath Completes Expansion of Ethernet over Copper Network
By Anshu Shrivastava
The company expects that this announcement will further solidify its position as the largest EoC provider in the United States. Dan Foster (News - Alert), president for business Markets at MegaPath, said that with the company’s nationwide investment in this game changing service, MegaPath is leading the way in providing customers with cost-effective high-performance options that can be tailored to meet their specific needs, which is not possible today with traditional access solutions.
To organizations, EoC provides a high-bandwidth, reliable and cost-effective alternative to expensive high-speed services. “EoC not only offers higher bandwidth than a traditional T1 or Bonded T1, but it is also priced lower than these solutions, which is a huge benefit, especially for our SMB customers,” Foster said.
The EoC network is backed by MegaPath’s Secure to the Core MPLS network. In addition, it also offers users the advantages of the company’s quality of service (QoS) capabilities when supporting bandwidth intensive or performance critical applications.
Company officials said that QoS is an important asset because it enables the prioritization of business-critical applications; allows users to control the allocation of bandwidth; promotes consistent, interruption-free network performance; and prevents critical applications from failing due to network congestion
MegaPath now offers EoC on its network in top 50 major markets nationwide, including Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Miami and San Francisco, reaching millions of businesses with symmetrical speeds up to 45 Mbps.
Earlier in September, MegaPath announced new enterprise, private and hybrid cloud hosting solutions designed to offer a cost-effective virtualization environment for hosting applications, data and storage.
