HomeProducts Metro Ethernet

Private and secure Metro Ethernet connectivity designed for ultra-high performance across multi-sites

SPTel Metro Ethernet is a dedicated Layer 2 network which provides high performance connectivity between multiple locations across a metropolitan area using Ethernet as a standard. It is designed to support Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint and Any-to-Any network design for enterprises that require ultra-performance, alongside providing secure and reliable Ethernet connectivity to run mission critical applications. Metro Ethernet allows businesses to:

  • Connect offices or data centres
  • Access public or private cloud data centres

With the surge in network traffic growth stemming from the increasing use of Internet, video conferencing, IP networking, cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT), it has boosted the popularity of Ethernet services for businesses because it is cost effective and scalable.

Metro Ethernet can support a wide range of speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 10Gbps. This allows customers to subscribe to a specific speed or increase their bandwidth with minimal interruptions, with an option to pay only for what they utilise. Customers can also scale their network efficiently between hub and spoke sites on demand.
