Ethernet Over Copper

Ethernet over Copper offers affordable and reliable connections

Ethernet refers to the technology used to connect computers for a Local Area Network (LAN). There are different types of network connections, one of which is Ethernet First mile (EFM). This connection follows protocols that link the services of a telecommunications company to the client’s area.

EFM transmits data using different interfaces for Ethernet Physical layer (PHY). One of the most popular interfaces is Ethernet over Copper (EoC). This interface permits alternative multi-pair aggregation. EoC uses the same jack connection that traditional Ethernet cables use. The good thing about Ethernet over Copper is that they are more affordable than other types of interfaces.

Compatibility with routers and data networks

Ethernet over Copper can work with private networks, such as VPN, MPLS and pre-existing WAN. You can also use it with the following services:

  • Hosted Private Branch Exchange (PBX)
  • Primary Rate Interface (PRI)
  • Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)

An Ethernet over Copper connection is similar to a regular Ethernet cable, but with different physical layers. You cannot plug an Ethernet over Copper connection into a regular Ethernet port though, as you need to have special adapters. Genesis will help set up your business’s Ethernet connection.

Advantages of Ethernet Network over Copper

Intertwined telephone wires make up the cable of an Ethernet over Copper connection, because of this Ethernet over Copper does offer some redundancy, if one strand of the copper fails or is cut then the circuit remains active, but at a slower speed. This is the more cost-effective option when compared to other materials. The uniformity between the customer’s network and service provider’s core greatly help improve connection performance and reduce expenses.
