AAPT launches fast mid-band ethernet service
- 04 December, 2012 10:02
Telecommunications infrastructure provider, AAPT, has launched its fastest mid-band ethernet (MBE) service to date, with an ethernet-over-copper service delivering up to 80Mbps.
It will leverage existing copper infrastructure and doubling the maximum speed available for MBE services.
AAPT CEO, David Yuile, said the new service provided speeds and features ideal for corporate requirements, particularly with cloud and IP voice services.
“Our new MBE service enables AAPT to deliver the fastest access yet to our business and carrier-grade network, without the need for fibre builds,” Yuile said. “As Ethernet is readily available on most existing routers and switches, customers are not hit with the extra connection costs and time delay associated with fibre.”
The service is currently available through 219 exchanges, covering more than 740,000 businesses and the telco plans to reach 267 exchanges by the end of next year.
In 2007, AAPT became the first telecommunications infrastructure company to deliver MBE with speeds of up to 40Mbps.
