Intellifiber Now Largest Ethernet over Copper Provider in Mid-Atlantic and Northeast
ORLANDO – October 12, 2009 – COMPTEL Plus Convention & Expo – Intellifiber Networks, serving the growing network needs of enterprise, service provider and government customers, today announced that it has enabled Ethernet over Copper (EoC) capability throughout its entire network. Intellifiber has more than 400 central offices directly connected to its fiber network, providing dense EoC coverage in markets from Norfolk to Philadelphia to Cleveland. EoC allows Intellifiber to leverage existing copper infrastructure to cost effectively deliver midband Ethernet access directly to customers without having to match demand to legacy circuit sizes.
“Ethernet services continue to be a rapidly growing market segment, however widespread adoption has been limited by a lack of Ethernet first mile access,” said Clint Heiden, president of Intellifiber Networks. more
