The ultimate in high performance, reliability, and security. Business-critical applications and real-time communications run consistently and without interruption.
Why Vodafone Ethernet Services?
Ethernet plays an important role as businesses look to provide the best access for different types of traffic going across their network. Dedicated high speed connectivity to data centres, as well as low cost LAN extensions leverage Ethernet connectivity to help optimise their Wide Area Network.
Ethernet has a long-standing reputation for reliability and security. That’s why it’s perfect for supporting real-time communications such as live streaming or huge business-grade applications like ERP. When your operations demand plenty of uninterrupted bandwidth Ethernet is a great choice.
Our dedicated service provides point-to-point connectivity with low latency and very high bandwidth ranging from 1Gbps to 100 Gbps in speed. It’s ideal for connecting your large sites and it can scale to connect your Data Centres, which comes in handy when your applications shift to the cloud. Take a look at our infographic to find out why Vodafone, supported by our partner, Ciena, are ideally placed to help you extend your LAN into a private, application ready, global WAN.
An MRI scan of a sick patient is 300GB and it needs to be shared with a specialist in another location to get the patient the right diagnosis. A strong Ethernet connection can send the whole file in a few minutes letting doctors make faster decisions and save lives.
