LDeX CONNECT EoFTTC
Our Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet service is provided over copper from your location to the green cabinets in the street. From the green cabinet and unlike standard broadband where the copper then continues all the way to the exchange, Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet traffic travels across a shared fibre optic circuit back to the exchange.
This means that the distance from the cabinet to the Exchange doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation of performance
Speeds achievable can be 20 Mbps symmetrical, with 20 Mbps upstream and up 76Mbps downstream bandwidth.
This provides an Ethernet type service, without the expense, whilst offering great UK wide coverage that’s more often available in residential areas.
Ethernet over Fibre is ideal for both Internet and MPLS VPN services. Often chosen for its speedy transfers of large data files as well as running simultaneous applications like SIP, video conferencing and real-time business applications.

EoFTTC DELIVERY OPTIONS
An EoFTTC circuit can be used purely for Internet breakout. The circuit B end will be delivered into an LDeX Connect POP site and we assign the client a small IP address allocation from our own IP space. The client configures the IP range on their equipment and LDeX Connect provides the default gateway and manages the routing out to the Internet.
An EoFTTC circuit can form part of an MPLS network which works well when the client has more that one location. In this instance the EoFTTC circuit B end is terminated into an LDeX Connect MPLS enabled POP and using MPLS it forms part of a point to multipoint network where all sites in the MPLS network can see each other.
