Ethernet Private Network

Unravelling complexity!

Your challenge is to keep your organisation flexible and responsive, and manage all your sites as if they were a single, unified entity. But, all too often doing that only increases complexity in your organisation, and your effectiveness suffers as a result.

But there’s a simple answer: Colt has been pioneering the use of Ethernet technology for the WAN over the last decade and a half, and the results have been spectacular. It’s a very straight-forward idea: you already use Ethernet for the LANs in each of your sites, so why not use the same technology to create a WAN?

You probably currently use the necessary equipment, and the operating costs are low compared to other connection methods. You already have the experience and expertise you need to create an Ethernet Private Network (E-PN), so you don’t need a host of expensive external consultants. Less time will be spent sorting out the inevitable problems that arise when different technologies try to work with each other, and, most importantly, you’ll have a highly flexible network that’s agile and totally scalable.

So, it doesn’t matter whether your offices are distributed across the same city, or country or throughout Europe, Asia or the U.S., if you have more than three sites an Ethernet Private Network will have a direct impact on your effectiveness as an organisation, and the bottom line. Our award winning pedigree in the Ethernet arena means that there is no one better equipped than Colt to deliver an Ethernet network and then support you 24/7, locally and in your own language. Our performance is matched by that of the service which achieves up to 99.999% availability.
