What is Ethernet over FTTC?
Ethernet over Fiber to the Cabinet is distributed through a copper connection that runs the short distance to the green cabinets in the street. Unlike standard broadband where the copper line continues all the way to the exchange, EoFTTC traffic travels across a shared fiber optic circuit to the exchange. As a result, the extra distance doesn’t lead to ongoing degradation of performance, which allows access to up to 20Mbps symmetrical speed with the additional boost downstream making a total of 76Mbps downstream bandwidth.
EoFFTTC is ideal for both internet and MPLS IPVPN 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.
