Why SHDSL, Ethernet over Cable or Wireless Micro-Wave Internet?
- Often times client require a high-speed fiber-optic connection to their main office(s) but also require a lower-cost alternative for satellite offices. This is where SHDSL, EoC or Wireless connections are useful, as they are often a fraction of the cost and have a larger national coverage.
- These connections enable us to mix and match the best technology possible given the client’s budget and requirements. Each connection can also be aggregated into a private layer 2 network, with a gateway to the Internet.
- These connections can also be a part of an integral strategy for providing maximum uptime. For example, by overlaying a fiber optic connection with a wireless micro-wave connection, we can ensure that no physical cut to the building’s conduit(s) could affect the service.
- Because most connections go through the Openface core network regardless of their nature (fiber, DSL, EoC, wireless, etc.) all bandwidth between each office is UNMETERED and is on a layer 2 private network which dramatically simplifies the client’s network topology (no need for VPN).
