GCOMM doubles the maximum speed on Ethernet over Copper

We are excited to announce an important upgrade to our Ethernet over Copper (EoC) service, which can now deliver up to 80 Mbps*, a speed that until recently could only be delivered over fibre.

Previously, GCOMM’s EoC was delivered in speeds ranging from 2 Mbps to 40 Mbps. Now, our customers can take advantage of speeds that are double the maximum speed available for Ethernet over Copper services. This new, enhanced service came as a result of our carrier AAPT’s recent improvements to their copper infrastructure.

Faster EoC means better business performance

Here are just a few benefits of the speed upgrade for your business:

●     No need for fibre connection, with speeds available from 2Mbps to 80 Mbps over existing infrastructure.

●     No extra connection costs as Ethernet is readily available on most existing routers and switches.

●     Providing the speeds and features required for optimum cloud and IP voice services, with symmetrical upload and download speeds.

●     EoC access supports multiple services, either standalone or in combination.

GCOMM’s Ethernet over Copper services are best suited for businesses with high bandwidth needs and multiple locations. The service is delivered with an uncontended 1:1 ratio and is covered by a premium service level agreement that guarantees 99.95% uptime. In addition, our EoC provides Quality of Service (QoS) suitable for: voice and video applications, quality critical applications and primary secure private network head office connection.

The recent advancement to our EoC service further adds to GCOMM’s ongoing commitment to provide Australian businesses with the IT infrastructure and services that will help them maintain a competitive edge in today’s market. With the increased scalability of our Ethernet over Copper, we’ll be able to offer an even higher level of service to our customers, particularly to the ones who heavily utilise cloud and IP voice services.

As one of Australia’s leading IT service providers, we are dedicated to continually improving the products, services and support we offer to our customers and channel partners.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with you and keeping you up to date on the latest developments at GCOMM.
