Leased Lines and Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) offer guaranteed bandwidth, high availability and a reliable connectivity option for your business. For a completely secure connection, Point to Point Leased Lines connect your company sites with permanent, dedicated and fast data lines.
The private line only carries communications and traffic from your company, resulting in a guaranteed level of service. The line can be used for data, video and voice and is most effective when sharing bandwidth hungry applications between different offices. High speed connections up to 1GB are available.
Similar to Leased Lines, EFM delivers a high speed, reliable internet connection to your business.
The difference between the two is that EFM uses bundles of copper pairs to connect to the local exchange whereas Leased Lines use fibre. This means EFM can be more cost effective, highly resilient and installation is much simpler and faster.
Speeds are symmetrical, so unlike a broadband connection you get the same speeds uploading data as you do downloading.
All of Arrow’s Leased Lines can be upgraded to MPLS where a customer has multiple sites and wishes to connect them all together.
When considering which type of connectivity would best suit your needs, Arrow will help you determine how much bandwidth you need – up and down stream. Your office location and data transfer are also important factors along with how critical internet connection is to your business.
Dedicated, fixed bandwidth connectivity that your business can depend on.
