Run your business not your network
Corporate networks are the heartbeat of any business – keeping the workforce connected, providing access to data and ensuring applications are available.
Providing reliable network access begins with identifying the current and future capacity, security and flexibility requirements of your business. Exponential-e’s Access Services are designed to meet the varying needs of businesses from network topology through to access.
Ethernet over Fibre
Ethernet over Fibre is a standard fibre-optic tail circuit between the customer site and Exponential-e’s Point of Presence (PoP).
Ethernet over Fibre – Cross Connect
Ethernet over Fibre Cross Connect is a standard fibre-optic cross-connect between the customer rack and Exponential-e’s cabinet.
Ethernet over Copper
Ethernet over Copper is a copper-based circuit between the customer site and Exponential-e’s network. The following access technologies are available for Ethernet over Copper:
E1 Line: A standard E1 copper line between the customer site and Exponential-e’s PoP.
Ethernet First Mile: A maximum of 8 bonded copper pairs between the Customer Site and the local exchange.
Ethernet over Copper – Cross connect
Ethernet over Copper Cross Connect is a standard CAT-5 copper cross-connect between the Customer rack and Exponential-e’s cabinet.
Ethernet over Copper – Basic
This is a variant of Ethernet over Copper EFM provided with a 5:1 contention ratio.
Broadband connectivity is provided as a Layer 3 service. Requirements to connect broadband-served locations into a Wide Area Network will need to be routed through an LNS Router in Exponential-e’s core network in order to facilitate integration to the customer's service.
The following access technologies can be used in supplying an Internet access mechanism:
ADSL: A private connection through an Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) over a copper pair to a shared access gateway on Exponential-e’s core network. This is an asymmetric access mechanism, providing higher download speeds than upload.
Depending on the customer site and solution design, two options are available ADSL Max (Up to 8
Mbps download and 488 Kbps upload) and ADSL 2+ (Up to 24 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload).
SDSL: A private connection through a Synchronous Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL) over a copper pair to a shared access gateway on Exponential-e’s core network. This access technology offers a bandwidth of up to 2 Mbps with no contention.
FTTC IP: A private connection through a Very High Speed Digital Line (VDSL) over a copper pair between the customer site and the local cabinet. Fibre circuits will be used to connect the local cabinet to Exponential-e’s PoP. This is an asymmetric access mechanism, providing higher download speeds than upload (Up to 80 Mbps download and 20 Mbps upload).
