Carrier-Grade Network


Business today requires a fast, reliable and secure network infrastructure. Keeping pace with rapidly changing requirements means meeting demands with exceptional performance and reliability, while managing costs effectively. Electric Lightwave’s Ethernet Services deliver secure connectivity between networks with the scalability and efficiency you need.

Bandwidth speeds from 1.5 Mbps to 10 Gbps and various access options including Ethernet over Fiber, Ethernet over Copper and TDM ensure flexibility, while Quality of Service (QoS) technology prioritizes your dynamic network traffic to maximize efficiency. Plus, we provision our Ethernet Services over our owned fiber infrastructure and MPLS core with self-healing diversely routed optical paths, so your mission-critical applications are always secure.

Choose our E-Line Service to connect remote sites to your main office, or our E-LAN Service to extend your existing network with multipoint connectivity.


Connect multiple sites to your main office with scalable bandwidth and high-availability network performance. Our Ethernet Private Line (EPL) is a point-to-point service that our customers typically use to replace a TDM Private Line. Our Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) is a point-to-multipoint service that extends your LAN and WAN connections, and features easy and cost-effective upgrades to prevent over-subscription of Committed Information Rate (CIR) bandwidth.



If you have multiples sites with different bandwidth needs and require greater control over your network traffic, our MEF 9 and 14 certified E-LAN service is the best choice for your business. Extend your existing Local Area Network with multipoint-to-multipoint connectivity so employees can access applications and resources securely as if they were locally connected. Add new locations without impacting traffic, and control network traffic by managing your own routing information and Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tags to segment traffic.
