2. About our Metro E Service
NETDOOR's Metro E services is a transport method that uses Carrier Ethernet technology. Simply put it is an Ethernet pipe connecting two or more locations LAN networks or to provide Internet access or both. Metro Ethernet provides a very reliable connection for businesses that rely heavily on employee and customer access to data and applications.
Metro E is provided to our customers over our fiber nework and is sometimes also provided over copper. There are no "smartjacks" on each end such as a T1 would use, nor are there CSU/DSUs installed. It is simply an Ethernet connection from a mux handed off as an RJ-45.
