Leverage what you have today to build tomorrow’s network
What would it mean if you had the ability to design a network that will grow with you and had the true flexibility to run large, diverse applications across town, across the state or even globally? That capability can be leveraged right from your Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) to seamlessly connect your business together as if there was no distance between you and another office whether they are 5 or 500 or even 5,000 miles away.
Meeting your networking needs
You require faster data speeds but also need to access the Internet and have other locations with different application requirements. The versatility of Ethernet can solve that by providing the high speed, on-time performance you demand while acting as the on-ramp to both the Internet and your IP VPN network. Ethernet can transport your information so you can focus on your core business.
Build on your existing architecture, use Ethernet as a back-up network or simply use it for a new, more reliable way to communicate. You may have highly sensitive data and need the full control that Ethernet provides. Security, continuity and efficiency are realized as your IT staff will set the traffic routes, insert data encryption and police content without expensive outsourcing to do this.
Technology is changing rapidly and with that comes higher demands on your network while pushing bandwidth requirements to its limits. Ethernet solutions from AT&T can scale as your business grows and can expand geographically to accommodate that growth. You need a service that has a variety of bandwidth and configuration options that include switched, dedicated or point-to-point. A solution that can be changed with ease to meet your business applications needs.
Ethernet can be configured as a private line connecting two locations or a meshed network connecting hundreds of sites
Use Network on Demand to instantaneously add locations, change services or scale capacity
Whether small or large bandwidth, faster upload than download speeds, your options range from 2 Mbps to 100 Gbps
Ethernet works and feels the same in the LAN, MAN or WAN so it’s familiar and easy to deploy
- Ethernet is universal technology with a familiar look and feel that makes it easier to connect and run
- You’re in control as you route, manage and prioritize applications
- Respond to your changing business with a virtual on demand network
- Well suited for bandwidth intensive applications like VoIP, Video, storage and data center consolidation
An Ethernet arrangement for you
This option is perfect if you are supporting many sites. Your business may have two or more locations and may need a Point to Point, Hub and Spoke or fully meshed network design. With Switched Ethernet, you can grow from one to many sites and you choose which sites will communicate with each other. Switched Ethernet is a shared network arrangement which provides a low cost easy to build solution.
For concentrated heavy bandwidth use, Dedicated Ethernet is the way to go.. If your business has heavy bandwidth between two locations, like Data Center to Data Center File transfers or two large sites (Sales Distribution Center to Accounting), you may require a high bandwidth, reliable, highly secure and cost effective point-to-point link.
Ethernet hybrid network
Hybrid-networks that work together. Your business may have hundreds or even thousands of locations, so it may not be practical to have a single network like Ethernet. That’s where a Hybrid network solution is the answer. Both Ethernet and IP VPN services offer you a range of choices and benefits that fill the need to run multiple applications at remote locations, branch offices and heavy bandwidth sites.
Ethernet access is the fastest growing access technology available today. While Ethernet is a technology and a network in itself, it’s also the gateway to your IP VPN or the Internet.
Use copper to minimize construction costs. This is great news if your business is in an area that is not fiber rich such as a rural area. For bandwidth speeds of 10Mbps or below, Ethernet may be provided over the same copper pairs used for your telephone service. This saves on expensive costs to install fiber.
Network on Demand is here
Introducing AT&T Switched Ethernet on Demand where you can quickly add or change services, order additional sites, ramp up bandwidth capacity and manage your network in real time. Network on Demand will provide your business with a new foundation for which you can intelligently plan and react to business changes easily. You’ll have full visibility into the network to deploy or change services and scale bandwidth through a user friendly virtual catalog.
After all, who knows their business better than you? You now have the flexibility and freedom connect sites, workgroups and applications faster and more securely; where needed, when needed, and as needed.
