CLEARPOINT Ethernet Broadband

Scalable, cost-effective Ethernet technology

CLEARGOL ClearPoint® Ethernet offers lower operating costs, enhanced scalability, and flexible network solutions

Layer 2 Networks

Metro Ethernet provides a platform for the convergence of Internet, data, voice, and video by addressing a wide range of Layer 2 networking needs, including point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, and any-to-any connectivity.

Network Reach

Whether your systems are collocated within a data center served by CLEARGOL or located anywhere throughout the state of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Texas or the District of Columbia, CLEARGOL can provide affordable and reliable Ethernet connections. We have more than 500,000 miles of fiber, interconnections into over 100 data centers and hundreds of other on-net access points in the primary commercial districts across our markets.

Scalable Services

CLEARGOL offers your business scalable and cost-effective point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and any-to-any metro Ethernet solutions. Our substantial Ethernet network is solely owned and operated by CLEARGOL, which means continuous, reliable, local support.

CLEARGOL ClearPoint® Ethernet benefits include:

  • Redundant over a self-healing DWDM fiber backbone
  • Higher security control than public Internet solutions
  • Flexible interfaces including 10/100Mbps FastE, 1000 Mbps GigE and 10 Gbps Ethernet
  • More cost effective and flexible WAN solutions than from older technologies like T1, DS3, and OCN private line and frame relay

Designed to scale with your evolving bandwidth requirements, CLEARGOL ClearPoint® Ethernet services deliver access to corporate networks, the Internet and network-based applications at ranges from 10Mbps to 10 Gbps.

  • Establish a scalable, flexible path to convergence
  • Extensive coverage (metro, regional, national) with both on net and off net
  • Deliver transparent LAN across the U.S. (LAN-to-LAN and LAN-to-WAN)
  • Help control costs by reducing capital outlay
  • Make your existing LAN/WAN resources more efficient
  • Include LAN-to-LAN and LAN-to-Internet functionality and features
  • Provide incremental bandwidth options so you only purchase needed bandwidth
  • All services meet Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) global interoperability standards

Find the right ClearPoint® Ethernet Service for your need

Ethernet LAN Service (E-LAN)

A multipoint-multipoint bridging service designed for connectionless, any-to-any connectivity between your dedicated ports, E-LAN is provisioned over fiber optics between your premises and serving wire center. E-LAN connects subscriber locations at native LAN speeds.

  • Configured by connecting customer UNIs with one multipoint-to-multipoint EVC or VLAN
  • Provides full port speed with two CoS options – standard and real time
  • Ideal for intra-company voice and LAN-to-LAN data applications
  • VLAN transparency allows you to control your own VLANs and Layer 2 control protocols

Ethernet Private Line

Ethernet Private Line is a fully managed, high-bandwidth point-to-point transport service for Ethernet frames.

  • Provisioned over next-generation SONET infrastructure or DWDM infrastructure
  • MAN and WAN connectivity for point-to-point high-speed transport
  • Speeds from 10-Mbps to full-rate Gigabit for metro and national applications as available
  • Ideal for Remote Backup and Storage Area Networking applications
  • Carrier grade, reliable, high-bandwidth data center connectivity for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery solutions
  • VLAN transparency allows you to control your routings with your equipment
  • Single-source provider with extensive nationwide presence

Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)

An all-fiber optic network service that connects subscriber locations at native LAN speeds, EVPL uses point-to-point Ethernet virtual connections (EVCs) to define site-to-site connections.

  • Can be configured to support multiple EVCs to enable hub and spoke configuration
  • Supports a wide variety of EVC bandwidth options so you can incrementally scale bandwidth to meet your growing network requirements
  • EVCs are offered in 1Mbps increments from 1-10Mbps, 10Mbps increments from 10-100Mbps and 100Mbps increments from 100-1000Mbps, 1000Mbps increments from 1Gbps to 10Gbps
  • Scalability – allows you to purchase and provision only what you need then scale bandwidth as you network requirements grow
  • Point-to-point EVC offer predictable performance for customer applications
  • Ideal for voice, video, and real-time data

Ethernet Carrier Access

Uses established Ethernet technology and extends access beyond the local area network (LAN) environment into a metropolitan area network (MAN) to provider service edge.

  • Provides a flexible, seamless broadband bridge that breaks the capacity bottleneck in the local loop
  • Scalable from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps – more scalable than traditional telco circuits.
  • Allows you to connect using Multi-Service Ethernet Access, which is built on our metro optical network, to our Internet backbone, National, Metro or Private IP networks
  • Dedicated Ethernet offers tiered access to the public Internet
