CHANNEL PARTNERS — TelePacific Communications (Booth 5005 and an Executive Sponsor) is doubling its 100MBps data rates to 200MBps via its Enhanced Ethernet over Copper (EEoC) network in California and Nevada.
EEoC combines multiple bonded copper pairs in the same access facility to provide one high-bandwidth circuit capable of supporting voice and data services including Ethernet private line, SIP trunking, Internet access, MPLS and VPLS VPN.
“A lot of industry observers think fiber is the future and they want to write off copper," said David Zahn, vice president of marketing at TelePacific. “But the reality is that fiber is only available in about 30 percent of office buildings across the nation, primarily in downtown metros and large office parks. EEoC helps fill the void."
TelePacific’s EEoC services are available from 247 of its EoC-enabled LSOs in California and Nevada, putting an estimated quarter million SMBs within reach of Ethernet-based broadband services. TelePacific said the number of EoC-enabled LSOs will grow to 284 during the first half of 2013.
TelePacific’s EEoC buildout was part of a larger effort to make the company’s network more capable, redundant and survivable, Zahn said. Over the past decade, TelePacific has made a number of acquisitions and integrated all the purchased the infrastructure to create one network. The company also has recently finished transforming its local access, core, data and voice networks to improve quality and scale.
“We have made considerable investments to enhance our network capacity, performance, reliability and operating cost-efficiency," said Zahn. “Channel partners and their clients can be sure that TelePacific will continue developing and delivering solutions that help them grow their businesses for years to come."
