Spectrum Business Optical Ethernet service offers reliable, ultra-fast Layer 2 WAN connectivity with speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps, in 10 Mbps increments. Choose between point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, or multipoint-to-multipoint (any to any) network configurations between two or more sites, with the ability to add locations or bandwidth as your business grows.

Performance Backed by Accountability

Spectrum Business offers 3 levels of network performance backed by service level agreements:

  • Premier - Ideal for voice and video
  • Express - Streaming Apps, VPN, Backup
  • Standard - Internet, site-to-site file transfer

Choose from Multiple Configurations

Spectrum Business Ethernet service offers generous bandwidth with three flexible configuration options, allowing you to build a tailor-made high-speed data network:

Ethernet Private Line (Point to Point)

Ethernet Private Line (EPL) is a point-to-point Ethernet Private Line (EPL) configuration that offers a committed information rate connection to connect both metro and long haul optical locations. It's ideal if you want full control of your network with the simplicity of a point-to-point connection.

Ethernet Virtual Private Line (Point to Multi-point)

If you need a point to multipoint connection to link a central headquarters or data center to multiple offices, your best option is Ethernet Virtual Private Line service (EVPL).

Ethernet Private LAN (Multipoint) With Fiber Endpoint

The multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet Private LAN (EPLAN) service offers the ultimate in flexibility, connecting all locations to create a secure, shared-data network.

In addition to offering multipoint connectivity and hub and spoke configuration, EVPL doesn't require you to hire dedicated IT staff to manage it. Instead, Charter Business will handle the configuration and management of the connections based on quality-of-service guidelines you set.

Cost-efficient rates for schools and libraries.

The Spectrum Business Network Operations Center is a certified service provider for the E-rate and Rural Health Care (RHC) programs. Administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), these programs offer discounts to eligible schools, libraries and rural healthcare providers.

Connect multiple offices cost-effectively.

The L2TPv3-based service provides a low-cost alternative to Optical Ethernet that leverages Charter's wide-reaching hybrid-fiber-coax (HFC) network to deliver transparent Layer 2 service to your locations.

Ethernet Private Line

A point-to-point Ethernet Private Line (EPL) configuration offers a committed information rate connection. It also offers control, allowing you to configure the connection to carry data and voice traffic, as well as other IP applications to suit your needs. As such, it is ideal if you want full control of your network with the simplicity of a point-to-point connection.

Ethernet Private LAN (Multipoint) with Fiber Endpoint

The multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet Private LAN (EPLAN) service offers the ultimate in flexibility. Connecting all locations to create a secure, shared-data network. It can also mix in point-to-multipoint connections, allowing you to route traffic securely between any endpoints.
