Point to Point Ethernet

What is Point to Point Ethernet?

A point to point Ethernet circuit simply allows you to connect two sites together over a secure, dedicated line. This allows you to extend your business network (WAN) across two locations with a secure, fast and reliable data transfer.

One of the decisions you will make about your Point to Point Ethernet solution is the amount of bandwidth you want, this can range from 100Mpbs to 10Gbps, depending on what you need.

Because you are not sharing your line with other users (it has a 1:1 contention ratio) you get guaranteed speed both up and down stream, reduced buffering and lag in video conferencing and VoIP technologies.

Point to Point Ethernet Advantages

Point to point ethernet circuits have very flexible and very high speed options to suit all. Starting at 10Mb between to locations going as far up as 100Gb with some carriers!

10Mb is getting very rare now as the demand for more bandwidth continues to grow. A 100Mb is the standard as the market stands. However this will no doubt change.

The point to point circuits are perfect for businesses who want to connect 2 sites together located within 25km of each other. However, if you need to connect your sites which are over a bigger distance then this is not a problem.

We have another product for that which is a national ethernet point to point connection. This product can cover much greater distances.

  • Costs

    Businesses pay a fixed monthly fee based on an agreed level of capacity.

  • Control

    Businesses can plan and control communication budgets with accessible usage and cost statistics.

  • Secure

    Secured transmissions particularly for critical company information. A leased line cannot be accessed by other parties not specified by the secured networks.

  • Reliable

    Fast and reliable transmission for voice, data and video applications.

Point to Point Ethernet Disadvantages

Costs are always going to be a factor and ethernet point to point connections are no different. If they are within a 25km distance then we can get some great pricing for you.

However, costs can spiral if one site is in the North of the country and the other is in the South. If these areas (regardless of distance) are built up areas then the likelihood of the pricing being high reduce significantly.

Internet access is also not an option here. this is purely a connection for 2 sites to upload and download data between each other. There is also no management of the line so no routers and presented as wires only.

Speed options are very resticted so you have 10Mb, 100Mb, 1Gb, 10Gb and in extreme circumstances we can get access to 100Gb if needed but please ask for further details.

  • Cost

    Point-to-point leased lines can be an expensive interconnection between two sites dependent on distance.

  • Internet

    There is no internet breakout with a point to point leased line. It is simply a connection between two sites.

  • Management

    Unlike a leased line, this service does not come as a fully managed service. This is a “layer 2” wires only presentation.

  • Speeds

    There are not as many speed options as what there is with a standard leased line so may be restrictive to some.

How Much Does Ethernet Point to Point Cost?

Unlike a standard ethernet service which is purely based on one location, point to point services rely on the availability of two locations. This in turn makes costing a bit more complex.

However, the best guide available is to simply look at your current locations, are they in urban or rural areas? If they are urban then the pricing will reflect this regardless of distance and the chances of a simple, cost effective solution here are high.

If your sites are in very rural locations with not much other businesses around them, it may be more of a struggle. There may be excess charges or you may be lucky. The best way to find out as always is to get a site survey done.

2Connect benefit from having a price promise guarantee so regardless of the outcome – good or bad from the survey, you’ll have peace of mind that you got the best price at the time of order.

What Are The Point To Point Ethernet Options?

Speeds

We offer a wide variety of speed options to pick from, delivered with 1:1 contention ensuring you are guaranteed consistently high symmetrical bandwidth ranging from 10Mb up to 10Gb.

Timescales

The time can vary depending on any additional planning or engineering works required but the average lead time is 65-75 working days for both sites. It can also be a lot quicker.

Monitoring

We proactively monitor your connection and will be available around the clock to offer support in the event of failure. This support is not simply office based hours, it’s 24/7 for total peace of mind.

SLA

In the unlikely event of a failure on your line we will provide on-site assistance, around the clock, with a 99.9% SLA and a 1/2 hour response / 4 hour fix. Remember, a P2P is not managed so you would need to report an outage.

Pricing

The price you pay will vary depending on your location and bandwidth requirements. As such it is important you make contact with a member of our team to provide you with a tailored quote.

Data Caps

As this is a completely uncontended line between two sites there truly is no data caps at all. You can upload and download as much data between sites as you wish without the fear of extra charges.

Contract Length

We have options for 1, 3 and 5 year contracts. Free installation options are available the 3 year term or longer contracts. We can provide you with multiple package deals for you to choose from.

Resilience

As with all connectivity, we can provide you with resiliency options even on a point to point ethernet connection. As an example, we could get you your first connection using a BT network then choose the exact same with Virgin for “true” resiliency.
