Metro Ethernet over fiber is focused on shipping red hot speeds. In general, this is the fastest intention connection that might be under current technology. This is the latest generation of data transfer technology for the internet. His historical development reached back to the IEEE 802.3 specification which was originally released in 1981. The standard has been improved for years. For example, when it was first written referring to the data transfer speed of 10 Mbps (megabits per second).
Initially, an Ethernet internet connection was equipped with the ThickNet coaxial cable. But it’s stiff, stiff and difficult to deal with. Subsequent developments come with a Thinnet cable that provides a greater speed. Next comes the twisted-pair cable that produces greater speed. But it is limited by magnetic interference and cross-talk problems because the data speed increases.
Both of these problems are solved with a fiber optic or twisted-pair unshielded. This fiber technology is also consistent, data speed transfers that are not distorted as high as 10 gigabits per second (10GB of Ethernet), this is 100 times faster than non-fiber Ethernet.
Ethernet over fiber requires high capital expenses to install. Only high traffic data users can justify costs. Even organizations that are connected to the internet with cats 5 or maybe paint 6 connections may be difficult to justify the installation of fiber optic connections.
The speed achieved by Ethernet over fiber is faster than the one provided by broadband, regardless of whether broadband is sent with cables, with wireless or by satellite. Initially, internet users really appreciate broadband connections. The Metro Ethernet connection is very superior than conventional broadband.
Metro Ethernet over fiber, of course, requires fiber optic infrastructure to be installed. This capacity has been installed only on a small number of selected geographical areas. It’s not available yet. If it is not installed in your area, it will likely be available soon. The launch of this technology is now only a matter of time.
