Metro Ethernet

Metro Ethernet is available to all our on-net sites by virtue of running a next-generation MPLS network. All sites feature redundant connectivity over leased dark fiber.

What is Metro Ethernet?

A Metro Ethernet Service, an MPLS pseudo-wire, Carrier Ethernet, or a Datacenter Interconnect, is a transparent Ethernet circuit between a pair of locations; emulating a direct Ethernet cable between your devices on either end. The connections will pass all Layer 2 protocols such as CDP and spanning tree as well as your VLAN tags (including your own Q-in-Q or double tagged frames).
