Los Angeles, Calif. - U.S. TelePacific Corp., a communications and network services company doing business as TelePacific Communications (TelePacific), has deployed new technology that delivers symmetrical bandwidth at speeds up to 100 Mbps over copper lines, nearly three times faster than previously possible. The new platform, called Enhanced Ethernet over Copper (EEoC), is available from all 234 of TelePacific's EoC-enabled local serving offices (LSOs) in California and Nevada, putting an estimated 223,000 small to medium-sized businesses within reach of Ethernet-based broadband services that are less expensive and faster to provision than solutions involving third-party fiber.
"Ethernet is becoming the preferred access and transport technology for businesses relying on data intensive applications and we intend to be the Ethernet provider of choice in all the markets we serve," says Dick Jalkut, President and Chief Executive Officer of TelePacific. "Our investments in Ethernet technology and related deployments underscore that commitment and effectively provide customers with more affordable high-speed bandwidth alternatives heretofore unavailable to them."
EoC combines multiple copper pairs in the same conduit to provide a single high bandwidth circuit capable of supporting the most demanding voice and data services, including MPLS and VPLS VPN, Ethernet Private Line, SIP Trunking and Internet Access. Advances in technology have allowed TelePacific to increase maximum bandwidth speeds, making EoC-based solutions more attractive for businesses with growing bandwidth needs.
TelePacific's Enhanced EoC substantially extends the distance over which equivalent bandwidth can be provided to customers who might otherwise require more expensive Ethernet over 3rd Party Fiber (Eo3PV) or DS-3 circuits.
Enhanced EoC effectively eliminates the need for most third party fiber within a mile of the LSO, while providing significant price and service delivery advantages.
