Scale multiple network connections with various routing connections leveraging US Signal's Ethernet Transport services.

US Signal offers Layer 2 Ethernet transport services to organizations seeking highly scalable solutions for multipoint connections. These services are among the market's most expansive, supporting the growing bandwidth requirements and application performance associated with today's ever-changing network needs.

In 2021, US Signal joined MEF, a global association of network, technology and cloud providers collaborating to advance digital transformation. We quickly achieved 3.0 Carrier Ethernet Certification for our transport services, demonstrating that our solutions meet the standards and specifications of the industry's leading authority.

Our Ethernet transport solutions are part of our extensive portfolio of switched and routed services, which include MPLS, dedicated internet access, cellular failover and virtual ethernet services (VES). We also offer top-tier direct transport services.


Features of US Signal's Ethernet Transport Services

One of the most significant benefits of our carrier Ethernet transport services is their ability to connect two or more large-area networks (LANs) while maintaining peak efficiency and optimal performance. These solutions are ideal for applications requiring high bandwidths with increased wide-area network (WAN) complexity. We built our robust Ethernet infrastructure from the ground up with carrier-grade transport equipment, enabling us to back our services with some of the industry's most comprehensive service-level agreements (SLAs).
