  • Simplified network management for rapid fault detection and monitoring.
  • Online customer portal for performance management, bandwidth allocation, and class of service modifications.
  • Industry leading SLA’s.
  • Bandwidth 3 Mb/s up to 10 Gb/s.

“We are excited to offer businesses fast, reliable, and secure connections,” said Bryan Adams, Senior Product Manager, Data Services. “Integra is committed to growing our network and has completed fiber installation in more than 1,600 buildings, meeting the connectivity needs of our customers including data centers, regional headquarters and multi-tenant buildings.”

“Businesses of all sizes are rapidly adopting carrier-grade Ethernet platforms as the transport method of choice. The future of Integra is all about Ethernet. Whether delivered via Fiber, TDM or Copper, Integra’s Ethernet Services offering provides a full range of customer options,” said Steve Zimba, chief marketing officer for Integra Telecom. “This flexibility, when paired with competitive pricing and superior customer service, makes for exceptional value.”

Integra Telecom’s carrier-class Ethernet Service provides metropolitan and long haul connectivity to multiple locations. Integra Ethernet Services offering includes the E-Line product line, with both Ethernet Private Line, and Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL), point-to-point and point-to-multipoint WAN connectivity for customers. Future enhancements to the portfolio include E-LAN for fully meshed applications, and participation in Ethernet Exchanges, enabling greater reach for Integra’s enterprise customers and network access for Integra’s wholesale customers. In addition, Integra is increasing data rates for EoC access, eventually extending bandwidth up to 100 Mb/s.
