Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM)

Providing the groundbreaking advantages of Ethernet connectivity - without the need for new cabling, expensive infrastructure or updated equipment.

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.
