Ethernet is transforming the way we all do business and is now becoming the main connectivity solution for both local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). Its high-speed bandwidth can be delivered to single or multiple sites, enabling everything from IP voice solutions to bandwidth-hungry hosted applications like video conferencing and Whiteboarding.

Ethernet in the First Mile provides all the ground breaking advantages of Ethernet connectivity - without the need for new cabling, expensive infrastructure or updated equipment. It uses existing copper pairs to provide uncontended, symmetric bandwidth up to 35 Mbit/s within an Ethernet enabled exchange.

However, copper ethernet first mile circuits usually have quicker installation times than fibre circuits. So if you've left it a bit late to order your leased line, a copper EFM circuit may just save your bacon.

The speed and value to increase revenue - with EFM, you can take full advantage of next generation communications such as SIP trunking, cloud-based services or video conferencing.

EFM is a cost-effective and reliable fibre alternative, with an industry-lead deployment time of 25 working days.
