Ethernet Transport Services

 

Ethernet Transport Services by Midwest Fiber Networks lets you control and customize your network’s ongoing data demands including data usage, VOIP, video, IPTV, and/or cloud-based applications. Our carrier-grade ethernet services keep your business running at optimal efficiency. With unlimited bandwidth growth, your business is able to deliver point-to-point or multipoint on our 100% fiber-based networks without sacrificing stability.

E-LINE - Point to Point (EPL) / Point to Multipoint (EVPL)

This option is best for bandwidth-intensive applications and is a smart solution for businesses interested in replacing traditional TDM private lines.

 

  • Securely transmit traffic over a private connection supported by an SLA
  • Enables your traffic to bypass the public internet
  • EPL (Ethernet Private Line) - Layer 2 direct connection
  • EVPL (Ethernet Virtual Private Line) - Layer 2 high capacity connection (Streamlines and supports multiplex multi services (EVCs) on a single user network interface (UNI) at a customer hub or aggregation site)

E-LAN - Multipoint to Multipoint

Ethernet Local Area Network (E-LAN) offers businesses easy and efficient connectivity among multiple locations and communication across your private network.

 

  • Securely transmit traffic over a multipoint configuration supported by an SLA
  • Self-manage using any V-LAN or ethernet control protocol
  • Flexibility to fine-tune bandwidth capacity per site based on application needs and budget

MPLS / Multipoint

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) securely connects two or more locations onto a single, fully meshed platform, or multipoint-to-multipoint - perfect for handling the influx of video-based applications. Midwest Fiber Network makes it easy by offering network management, including routing and IP addressing, to provide better predictability of traffic delivery, performance, and consistency that your organization needs.

 

  • All locations within your network have redundant links to all other locations
  • Transmit data across a Wide Area Network (WAN), allowing applications to perform as if users were on the same Local Area Network (LAN)
  • Layer 3 connectivity

Dark Fiber

Future-proof your network’s rapidly growing high-capacity connections cost-effectively with leased dark fiber by Midwest Fiber Networks. Dark fiber is customized, private, and exclusive infrastructure for your company. Leased dark fiber makes it simple for businesses to control and scale, while the security offered by its physical connection makes it possible to separate dark fiber from other services.

 

  • Direct physical connection between points A and Z, or ring, for strict low-latency requirements (rather than traffic bouncing in multi-locations using LIT services)
  • Provide physical redundancy, single or dual entrance, as part of your disaster recovery/business continuity plans
  • Long-term cost savings
  • Customized infrastructure tailored to your company's needs

UNMANAGED LEASED DARK FIBER

Unmanaged leased dark fiber is infrastructure that your company controls with a variety of options from individual strands to complex, multi-site designs. Your company provides the equipment and resources necessary to light the fiber, implement networking protocols, and monitor and manage network performance.

 

  • Freedom of equipment, connection settings, type of transmission technology and protocols exclusive to your company (future-proof)
  • Ability to scale your network with unlimited dedicated bandwidth without the need for costly and disruptive upgrades
  • Security on your own dedicated strands of fiber

MANAGED LEASED DARK FIBER

Managed leased dark fiber allows your company to control and customize the network without building it or managing it yourself. Midwest Fiber Network procures the optical equipment, performs engineering and installation, testing, and turn-up of your fiber network. This option includes ongoing management and monitoring, all aspects of maintenance (including sparing parts and equipment), and dispatch for fixes and software upgrades.

 

  • Utilize MWFN experts to manage your network
  • MWFN's buying power translates to cost-savings for you. No need to order components from multiple vendors.
  • Security on your own dedicated strands of fiber
