Welcome to Ethernet over Copper

Thank you for visiting We strive to bring you valuable information and services related to business Ethernet in the range of 1 to 20 Mbps.

What is Ethernet over Copper?
Ethernet over Copper describes a family of WAN networking services that also fall into the category of Metro Ethernet services. What sets Ethernet over Copper, or EoC, apart is that these services are provisioned over twisted pair copper telco wiring. This is the same wiring that is used to bring in T1 lines and multi-line telephone services. Nearly every business is already wired with a multi-line binder cable, which dramatically reduces the cost, time and effort to establish Ethernet over Copper service. The term "Ethernet" means that EoC uses the same popular Ethernet protocol that runs on nearly every business network now.

What Advantages Does Ethernet over Copper Offer?
EoC is easy and inexpensive to install, thanks to the use of existing copper pair telco wiring. Two or more pair are needed, depending on the bandwidth required. You'll find that Ethernet over Copper is readily available in the speed range of 1 to 20 Mbps. More than that generally requires fiber optic cabling to support the high bandwidth involved. Ethernet tends to be more scalable than legacy telecom services, such as T1. It is relatively fast and easy to increase bandwidth without construction as long as you have already installed a port capable of the highest bandwidth you need. Most of all, Ethernet offers a cost savings per Mbps. It's not uncommon to get 2 or 3 Mbps Ethernet over Copper for the same price as a 1.5 Mbps T1 line. The savings get even more dramatic as you go to the higher bandwidth levels. The only caveat is that your business needs to be located in a populated area, and preferable a high density business center downtown or in the burbs. EoC is distance limited and rarely available in rural areas.
