The advanced, yet simple way to connect all your business locations

Cox Metro Ethernet allows you to cost-effectively connect multiple locations together by combining the simplicity of Ethernet with our reliable optical fiber network. Now you can securely extend the reach of your network without the cost and complexity of traditional WAN technologies. Cox Metro Ethernet is designed to effectively carry all of your converged services such as data, voice over IP and video over IP.

How your business can benefit...
  • Ethernet Simplicity. Cox Metro Ethernet uses familiar Ethernet technology to connect locations, eliminating the need to deploy complicated LAN-WAN conversion technologies. Your IT professionals apply the same technical expertise to both internal and external network connectivity, capitalizing on this simplicity.

  • Cost-Effectiveness. Cox Metro Ethernet delivers high-speed, metro-area-wide Ethernet connectivity that allows your business to employ the latest technologies, combining voice, video and data connections. Metro Ethernet can provide a higher bandwidth value than legacy technologies such as frame relay. And you eliminate the need to purchase and install expensive CPE at each location resulting in lower overall cost of ownership.

  • Network Consolidation. Cox Metro Ethernet Services provide Class of Service capabilities allowing you to consolidate your data, voice and video services onto one integrated network service, thereby further reducing your cost and complexity.

  • Extensive Availability. Cox Metro Ethernet is available at a large number of locations served by Cox’s Fiber-To-The-Premise or Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) networks, both serviced by Cox’s highly redundant and reliable metro network architecture.

  • Flexibility and Scalability. Multiple topologies are supported to fit your connectivity needs: point-to-point, any-to-any, and hub-and-spoke. Additionally, our Ethernet connectivity solutions offer a range of high speeds to match your bandwidth needs at each location. Metro Ethernet speeds can easily be adjusted to grow with your business.

  • Standards-Based. Cox has achieved certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum. This assures you that Cox Metro Ethernet services provide reliable, standards-based solutions that align with the industry’s direction for carrier Ethernet services.

  • Professional Installation and Local Technical Support. A highly trained Cox technician dedicated to commercial services will install your service to ensure the network meets your expectations. Our dedicated local support team is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, we monitor our networks from both local and national Network Operations Centers and provide responsive, business-class customer service.
