EOC provides high-speed connectivity using next-generation technology. Ethernet over copper is reliable and affordable while maintaining a high quality of service that can be installed in a very short period of time. EOC is an excellent alternative to competing fiber products.
Typical speeds from EOC range from as little as 3 Mb per second up to 30 Mb per second. EOC runs over existing copper wiring whereas with traditional T1 and DS3 service, fiber is typically provided for deployment. That requirement leads to a higher cost to the end-user because of the local loop needed to provide the service. In addition, EOC is easier to deploy then fiber because most facilities already have existing copper infrastructure.
EOC is distance-sensitive so services vary based on your location.
