Business communications services provider PAETEC Holding Corp. (NASDAQ GS: PAET) has installed Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation systems from Overture Networks that will enable PAETEC to support 100-Mbps services via Ethernet over Copper (EoC).

PAETEC’s current copper network can use up to 15 Mbps per copper pair to deliver as much as 100 Mbps access directly to customers. PAETEC has more than 370 central offices (COs) directly connected to its fiber-optic network with additional COs planned this year.

“As one of the largest providers of EoC in the United States, we are leading the way with one of the fastest offerings on the market,” said Clint Heiden, president of national accounts and fiber services, PAETEC. “Our dense footprint allows us to offer multiple access media and speeds to meet the diverse needs of our customers, including Ethernet over Copper, fiber, and fixed wireless.”

In addition to direct access for PAETEC retail customers, wholesale customers also can establish one or more Ethernet Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNIs) with PAETEC to reach more than 200,000 business locations.
