Ethernet Solutions

High speed point-to-point ethernet for local and nationwide LAN and WAN 

Unlike broadband, which is a shared resource, Ethernet connectivity is a dedicated connection that is delivered to you via Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (also known as General Ethernet Access), Ethernet First Mile (EFM) or Fibre Ethernet.

Each delivery method will give the security, reliability and bandwidth that your business needs, and with guaranteed speeds and service levels, Ethernet connectivity from CloudM is the ideal solution.

In simple terms…

The extra reliability, security and symmetrical download and upload speeds makes Ethernet ideal for smooth and seamless VoIP and video conferencing, large data transfers and access to cloud based services.

Consider this option if…

Your data demands are growing and you need the extra speed, security and reliability that Ethernet connectivity offers, or you need a point-to-point leased line, managed internet access or wide area network solution.


Ethernet over FTTC

Ethernet over FTTC or General Ethernet Access (GEA) is where existing fibre or copper cable (if fibre is not available) connects your business to the nearest street cabinet, and a dedicated Ethernet line carries data to the CloudM core network.

CloudM has a Ethernet over FTTC solution that guarantees symmetrical upload and download speeds of up to 19Mbps, with unlimited data usage and a 8 hour fix time.

What this means is....

A high velocity hybrid solution that gives you the speed and bandwidth of Ethernet with the cost benefits of our FTTC and FTTP solutions.

Consider this option if…

You have up to 20 users, want a cost-effective way to enjoy the benefits of Ethernet and your business location has the required capability.

Ethernet First Mile (EFM)

Where Fibre Ethernet is not available or would be too expensive to install, CloudM EFM provides an end-to-end Ethernet solution using multiple copper wires to connect your premises directly to the Ethernet core network.

The dedicated, uncontended connection provides a high symmetrical bandwidth.

What this means is....

A high speed, dedicated and fully managed connection, ideal for the smooth running of real time applications like video conferencing and VoIP where fibre is not an available option.

Fibre Ethernet

This end-to-end fibre solution offers unparalleled levels of reliability and speed. It can be implemented in most locations regardless of whether or not fibre is currently available.

Speeds of 1Mbps to 10Gbps and low latency ensure that the most demanding real time applications can be handled with ease. CloudM options include our highest service levels (99.93% availability), a seven hour circuit fix and four hour Customer Premises Equipment (CPE ) replacement service.

What this means is....

A secure, totally managed service capable of dealing with large numbers of users and any high bandwidth cloud based applications.

Consider this option if…

Your business needs complete control of your connectivity at all times, and any loss of service would have a major financial or operational impact.
