Sling Broadband Metro Ethernet service combines the power of Ethernet and optical technologies across metropolitan area/wide area network (MAN/WAN) to deliver low cost, scalable, and secure bandwidth. With copper fiber and fixed wireless networks providing native Ethernet service, Sling Broadband 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. Sling Broadband Metro Ethernet also provides local area network (LAN)-to-LAN connectivity between two or more customer locations within a metro area.
Sling Metro-Wi provides local area network LAN-to-LAN connectivity between two or more locations within a metro area. The Metro-Wi solution is based on distributed Layer 2 switching and shared transport data bandwidth. The local loop that extends to the customer premises can typically be provided via either fiber, copper or wireless facilities (where available). Service is available in buildings served by disclosed wire centers throughout the Sling Broadband 14-state local service area.
