Ethernet GEA

Company Size: 30-100 Speed Range: 10 Mbps – 20 Mbps
Cost: Low Availability: Medium

Ethernet GEA uses uncontended Ethernet technology and is an ideal entry-level solution for customers requiring increased bandwidth, all round better performance and better service level agreements. Offering high speed connectivity at a lower cost than EFM, Ethernet GEA is an ideal solution for growing businesses that have previously found ethernet costs prohibitive and who are located in an area served by this technology.

As with EFM, the performance can degrade over long distances so you’d need to check exactly what bandwidth can be guaranteed as this will depend on your distance from the telephone exchange.

Key factors to consider when choosing this option:

  • Cost effective
  • With excellent service level agreement and guaranteed time to repair
  • Ideal for supporting IP-based solutions and SIP trunking
  • 24/7 network monitoring
  • Quick and easy to install

In summary; Ethernet GEA is accessible to an estimated 40% of UK Businesses; like EFM it provides consistent, uncontended bandwidth underpinned by excellent Service Level Agreements which are suitable for most SMB requirements; in terms of cost, it is more than Broadband but even less than EFM & much less than Ethernet Fibre.
