More interesting facts about Ethernet over Copper service

intersting facts about EoC connections Ethernet over Copper (otherwise known as EoC) service offers businesses in the United States a symmetric broadband connections to the internet, and/or to a carrier backbone network, at speeds ranging from 2.0 Mbps to 75 Mbps. Unlike T1 service that is available practically everywhere, Ethernet over copper service has variable reach. The closer a customer is to the carrier's central office (CO), the faster the connection capability / broadband speeds.

How does Ethernet over Copper work?
As the name implies, ethernet over copper runs over the coppers pairs that every building has installed by the ILEC in the area, otherwise known as 'the phone company'. These copper strands conduct electricity very well, but degrade as a function of distance. Back in the main CO, a carrier sets up carrier-grade switches to provide service, and utilizes those copper connections out to each building as a way to deliver IP (data) to the end-user, much like DSL. You will find EoC service in many areas across the country, typically your more populated zones. Carriers typically invest in new EoC equipment where they can get the maximum return, which means they invest first in areas of high population density. But, over the years, carriers have expanded EoC service out to the suburbs in search of new subscribers at reduced margins.

Ethernet over Copper versus Fiber
The primary difference between EoC and EoF is the potential for bandwidth. Electrons are the means by which information is communicated over a copper wire, and electrons mean current, and current means magnetic field. All all these act like a un-greased wheel on a car, creating electronic friction that gradually degrades the signal each foot it travels down the wire. Fiber, on the other hand, is a tube of glass that conducts light, as in photons. Light can be transmitted almost an unlimited distance at virtually the speed of light. This allows a LOT of information to travel a LONG way. The only limitation on fiber transmission is the speed at which the routers and switches that transmit and receive this information can process the information. Current hardware, combined with modern compression techniques, allow us to send/receive up to 40 Gigabytes per second. Within 5 years it is expected that we'll have 100 Gig of capaticy over fiber - truly incredible speeds!

"So, why isn't everything connected by fiber?" you ask. Well, there is no doubt that Fiber optic transmission is important to future and present network architecture. Many companies have already made the investment to deploy fiber into their WAN networks. However, the cold hard reality is that total "fiber miles" in the U.S. is still significantly lower than "copper miles". This trend will continue for many years, as it will cost billions of dollars, paid for by both carriers and private investment, for fiber to reach the point of ubiquity with the copper network.

Things to look for when you source EoC
things to consider when you are in the market for Ethernet over Copper
After helping clients find the best EoC service for over 10 years, here is a list we've compiled to help you find the best apples-to-apples deal:
  • Router - some providers include a router with their service, others will charge you a "rental" fee each month, while others will leave that completely up to you.
  • Router Management - some providers will manage your router for you from their Network Operations Center, watching to see if you are getting close to your saturation limit and proactively watching to see that your service is up. Others will leave the management of the router (after the initial configuration) in your hands.
  • Term Commitments - every EoC service provider will ask you to commit to a 1, 2, or 3 year contract. There are some excellent discounts (on the order of 15-20% off) for you if sign 3-year agreements. Second, customers who sign longer commitments will almost always have the installation/set-up fees waived. If they don't, just ask and they will 99% of the time.
  • Upgrade-ability - you may need to check to see how many copper pairs are running into your building. If you need all of them to get the bandwidth you need today, you'll have -0- options in the future of ever getting more without going to either fiber or microwave. Second, if you have plenty of copper pairs coming in, also know that there are different router types with vaying numbers of ports on the back. If the router you're using has four ports (all being used), and you want to upgrade your bandwidth, be prepaired to wait for the carrier to provision another copper pair and to send you the new router (with more ports) that can handle the load. This router upgrade isn't instantaneous and will usually result in a slightly higher per-month charge.
  • Installation - EoC service installation can take between 3 weeks and 2 months, depending on the efficiency of your new ISP combined with the ILEC. Both companies have to do their job right in order for you to receive service in under 60 days. Just prepare yourself.
  • Service Renewals - most EoC carriers will convert your account from a term commitment to a month-to-month at the end of your contract term. But beware, there are some of them that will auto-renew your contract for another 3 years at the same rate if you let the expiration date pass without contacting them (or your agent). Each and every 3 years, you should be able to double your speed for the same price you pay today.
