SPTel’s Metro Ethernet (MetroE) provides simple and reliable Ethernet connectivity with flexible bandwidths.

Metro Ethernet is an Ethernet network that provides point-to-point or multipoint connectivity services. MetroE allows businesses to:

  • Connect offices or data centres (point to point or multipoint)
  • 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) has boosted the popularity of Ethernet services for business 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 utilize. MetroE provides reliable and high performing connectivity for point-to-point service between 2 customer sites. With point-to-multipoint topology support, customers may scale their network efficiently between hub and spoke sites using Metro Ethernet.

Why choose SPTel Metro Ethernet Solutions?

  • Simplified Process

Say goodbye to the challenging and complex decision-making process of formulating the ideal network path from the many exchanges and paths before subscribing to a Metro Ethernet service. Our Metro Ethernet service provides enterprises with two simple options of either a Protected or Unprotected service. With our diverse and robust network infrastructure design, SPTel MetroE can provide network protection end-to-end, from customer location to customer location, instead of just partial or core network protection.

  • Flexible Configuration and Contract Terms

In addition, SPTel maintains a flexible and less restrictive MetroE configuration for more efficient transport of the end user’s equipment and applications, enabling enterprises to enjoy jumbo frame support or upgrade port interfaces from FastEthernet to GigabitEthernet at no additional costs. This flexibility extends to our contract terms as well. Customers can sign on for as short a term as 3 months, at the same monthly rate as a 1-year term. By avoiding complexity and commitment inflexibility, enterprises can ease the burden on their IT team, and continue to focus on their core business.

  • Better Performance

Unlike other providers, SPTel provides 1 pair of fibre strands to each customer that terminates at their site instead of terminating the fibre at the MDF room and splitting the bandwidth to individual customer units. This means that customers will benefit from greater reliability and lower latency from their Metro Ethernet connection.

  • Scalability

SPTel’s Metro Ethernet service supports a range of speeds from 10Mbps to 10Gbps. Alternatively, surge usage can be up to 10 times the base bandwidth and charged on a utility-based model so you only pay for what you use.

  • Resiliency

Our data infrastructure comes in built with unique network path and diversity for greater business resilience. Learn more about our network diversity here. Under our protected service option, once a fault has been detected, our service will automatically re-route traffic through the next available network path to ensure minimal to no down time for your business.
