Ethernet Services


Fiber optic Ethernet services are the gold standard for reliable, high performance, connectivity.  Ethernet is an especially robust solution for large bandwidth needs such as the secure transfer of data and images for multi-location business enterprises such as trading firms, video serving and hospital systems. It is also the optimal backhaul solution for wireless carriers that depend on Transit Wireless Ethernet to connect their customers in the New York City underground subway stations to their wireless networks.  Small wonder then that Ethernet is universally the most widely installed network connectivity technology.

Transit Wireless Ethernet is available as a fully-managed carrier-class service.
