Ethernet over Copper

Over roughly three generations of time, networks were designed with copper wires. Today fiber and fixed wireless deployments are far-reaching, but certainly not everywhere copper facility is available. The "traditional" copper facility has now transformed into Ethernet over Copper (EoC), a dynamic technology that delivers high bandwidth and offers the most advanced features.

EoC Advantages

  • Availability: EoC utilizes existing copper facility making it a high availability network.
  • Bandwidth for Small to Mid-Sized Business: Speeds range from 3 Mbps to 10 Mbps accommodating the needs of most small to mid-sized businesses.
  • Ethernet Connectivity: Delivered via an Ethernet connection, EoC simplifies use so customers can connect directly to LAN quickly and easily.
  • Convergence: EoC provides a platform designed for converging data and voice. Nextera assures that voice traffic is prioritized with Quality of Service (QoS) configurations, ensuring the highest levels of voice quality. Ideal voice opportunities are Hosted Voice and SIP Trunking.
  • Performance Guarantee: Nextera guarantees network performance with an industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA). It includes a network availability of 99.99% as measured on an annual basis, network latency of less than 60 ms, and packet loss of less than 1% as measured on Nextera's backbone network.
