Sling Broadband Metro Ethernet Service

Improve on Your Mission-Critical Operational Efficiencies

Are you getting the most out of your communications network? For a boost in network application performance and increase in network flexibility, choose Sling Broadband Metro Ethernet service and enjoy seamless integration across business applications.

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.

Benefits of Sling Broadband Metro Ethernet

  • Reduce your total cost of ownership by eliminating the need for specialized WAN support expertise; lower cost Metro Ethernet switches and routers, as well as consolidating server/facilities, also help reduce cost of WAN equipment
  • Increase flexibility with scalable bandwidth increments allowing you to pay only for what you need
  • Enhance productivity by enabling virtual work groups across a metropolitan area (i.e., gain connectivity—both internally and externally to those entities you regularly communicate with; for example, your suppliers)
  • Upgrade easily with quick turnaround; your service can typically be up and running in as little as four business days after service order and acceptance
