Ethernet over copper, commonly referred to as EoC, is a relatively new technology that is rapidly becoming the preferred choice of businesses, when compared to T1, bonded T1 and fractional DS3.

(EoC) provides bandwidth pipes that range between two and twenty megabits per second (mbps).

Ethernet over Copper is distance limited, and therefore is not available everywhere.  EoC is available in most cities, but not in most rural locations.
20 mbps EoC is usually only available to businesses that are within 7000 feet of a fiber fed telecom central office. Businesses that are within 8000 feet of a fiber fed Ethernet equipped CO can obtain 15 mbps EoC. Businesses that are within 11,000 feet of the CO can obtain 10 mbps Ethernet.

Because large cities are densely populated, they usually have several telecom central offices to meet the needs of the large population.  For this reason, a large percentage of the businesses located in these densely populated cities can obtain EoC bandwidth.

Because T1 and Bonded T1 commonly cost about twice as much as Ethernet over copper, many businesses that are within range of EoC now choose Ethernet rather than T1 or bonded T1.

Ethernet over copper is now as versatile as T1 in its ability to efficiently carry PRI, analog, SIP and Hosted PBX voice (telephone) services, as well as internet, MPLS networking, and integrated bandwidth services.

 This equates to excellent savings potential for businesses that are currently receiving their voice, internet, integrated or MPLS network services through T1, bonded T1 or DS3 circuits.

As mentioned earlier, Ethernet over copper now offers these businesses the potential to cut their telecom costs by as much as 50% each month or more, with free installation and no upfront cost. Another significant development regarding EoC is that it now facilitates hosted PBX. With integrated hosted PBX, businesses no longer need to purchase and maintain expensive PBXs, to obtain all of the features traditionally provided by an on premise PBX.

With hosted PBX, all features, such as call waiting, call forwarding, caller ID, voicemail and about 20 more features, too numerous to list, are all offered online and configured through a user friendly online portal.

With Ethernet hosted PBX, businesses no longer must place their calls over the public internet to enjoy the numerous features traditionally offered with hosted service. Now, calls are carried over the private network of the telecom provider, and never touch the internet.

Because the voice packets for these calls are maintained on the private network of the Telecom provider, CoS, Class of Service, packet prioritization is ensured. This results in excellent call quality.

Hosted PBX service also provides unlimited free long distance and toll free services for businesses.

Most businesses currently using t1, bonded T1, and fractional DS3 to meet their internet, telephone, or networking needs can now save up to 50% on their total telecom bill by switching over to Ethernet over Copper.  This change is free, with no installation charge.
