Metro Ethernet service is Ethernet that is available to businesses located in larger cities. Providers and carriers of telecom services provide several central offices (CO) in order to meet the bandwidth demands in areas that are highly populated. This results in numerous CO’s that are almost certainly fiber-fed and making Metro Ethernet more widely available and usually less expensive than Ethernet provided to more rural locations.
Fast Ethernet (Fast-E) and Gigabit Ethernet (Gig-E) are examples of the types of Metro Ethernet available. A Fast Ethernet circuit supplies 100 Megabits per second of bandwidth and a Gigabit Ethernet circuit supplies 1000 mbps of bandwidth. Metro Ethernet is also available as fractional bandwidth. . Fractional Fast-E is highly scalable. This makes fractional bandwidth a very good choice for companies that expect their bandwidth needs to increase in the future. For example, a fractional Fast-E circuit could be purchased at 30 mbps, with the advantage of purchasing additional bandwidth in smaller increments (usually in 10 mbps increments) up to the full Fast-E at 100 mbps. Fractional Gig-E is also highly scalable, only at larger bandwidth increments. A fractional Gig-E circuit can be purchased at 200 mbps, with the ability to scale all the way up to a full 1000 mbps. Once a fractional circuit is installed, if a business requires additional bandwidth, the installation time is minimal when compared to installing an entirely new circuit, and often there is no installation cost for the increased bandwidth. Metro Ethernet service can also be purchased as burstable bandwidth. With burstable Metro Ethernet, a customer commits to a set monthly bandwidth purchase, and only pays extra for the amount of bandwidth used above that commitment, for the specific duration of time it is used. For instance, if a customer purchases burstable Fast Ethernet service, they can commit to the minimum monthly bandwidth necessary, and have the ability to burst all the way up to a full 100 mbps as needed.
