METRO OPTICAL ETHERNET  

Combine the power of Ethernet and optical technologies across a metro-/wide-area network (MAN/WAN) to deliver low cost, scalable, and secure bandwidth.

Metro Ethernet combines the power of Ethernet and optical technologies across MANs to provide low cost, scalable and secure bandwidth. Metro Ethernet provides local area network (LAN)-to-LAN connectivity between 2 or more locations within a metro area. It is suitable for data applications including: data file transfer, Internet access, off-site data storage and access to Hosting, outsourced mail and file server service and outsourced application service. The service is also well suited to voice and video applications.

HOW IT WORKS 
——

CenturyLink® Metro Ethernet service combines the power of Ethernet and optical technologies across metro-/wide-area network (MAN/WAN) to deliver low cost, scalable, and secure bandwidth. With copper and fibre networks providing native Ethernet service, CenturyLink Metro Ethernet service offers flexibility while simultaneously decreasing costs, as compared to carrying an equivalent bandwidth on traditional synchronous optical network (SONET)-based networks. This allows you to upgrade and increase speeds quickly to meet your growing bandwidth needs. CenturyLink Metro Ethernet also provides local area network (LAN)-to-LAN connectivity between two or more customer locations within a metro area.
