What is Metro Ethernet?
Metro Ethernet is the use of Carrier Ethernet technology in metropolitan area networks (MANs). Metro Ethernet offers cost-effectiveness, reliability, scalability and bandwidth management superior to most proprietary networks.
Metro Ethernet can connect business LANs and individual end users to a wide area network or to the Internet. Corporations, academic institutions and government agencies can use Metro Ethernet to connect branch campuses or offices to a secured intranet.
