Gigabit Ethernet (Gig E)

Gigabit Ethernet (Gig E)

Gigabit Ethernet or Gig E describes a 1 Gig, or 1000Mbps access loop for an Ethernet connection with port speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 1000Mbps. Access to Gig E circuits requires carriers to have fiber optic cabling in or around your building, which limits access to Gig E to businesses or universities in areas that have been targeted by Tier-1 and major network ISP’s as heavy data use territories.

For growing companies that are fortunate enough to get this type of connection, Gig E is a great option given its scalability and ease of upgrade after its initial installation.

Gig E provides sufficient bandwidth to companies using their connection for the following:

  • Email
  • E-Commerce
  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
  • General Internet browsing
  • Business-class VoIP
  • Web Conferencing
  • Data Center Applications
  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
