Scalability – EtherSphere’s network is ideal for Converged IP services, and provides a large-varying of applications to enable them to improve efficiency, with speeds not the same as 1Mb to 2Gb:

1 Mb increments from 1-10 Mb

5 Mb increments from 10-100 Mb

25 Mb increments from 100-1000 Mb

100 Mb increments from 1000-2000 Mb

More than 2 Gb on request

Easy Billing – traditional VPL services need a bandwidth commitment. EtherSphere, however, offers a usage-base billing component, that makes it ideal for disaster recovery and back-up implementations

Performance Assurance – EtherSphere offers optional finish-to-finish Service Level Contracts (SLAs) and often measures finish to accomplish frame delivery, delay and delay variation by Type of Service (CoS) between locations

Improved Traffic Management – lobal Crossing’s EtherSphere enhances circuit efficiency by assisting customers in scheduling and shaping individuals to better align with data profiles

Smart Demarc – deployed whatsoever user sites, Smart Demarcation Network Interface Device (NID) offers standards-based finish-to-finish connectivity fault management

Flexible Service Types:

Point-to-Point – offers site-to-site connectivity similar to Ethernet PLs

Point-to-Multipoint – much like traditional PL fan-out service, point-to-multipoint offers hub-and-spoke connectivity for service multiplexing, which will help for multiple Ethernet virtual connections inside the user-to-network interface

Multipoint-to-Multipoint – offers any-to-any multi-point data connectivity through which every site seems on a single Ethernet network – no matter its location

Achieve – Global Crossing’s extensive footprint offers WAN solutions in almost 700 towns along with over 60 countries on 6 continents via IP Virtual private network services connectivity
