Vodacom Business launches Metro E PDF Print E-mail
Vodacom Business will be launching its Metro-Ethernet Fibre network (Metro E) today, which it says is a super-fast, last-mile fibre connection aimed at businesses in metropolitan areas. 
It is aimed at businesses that require a cost effective, scalable and managed communications solution. A variety of speeds are available from 2Mbps to 1Gbps, and flexibility as to when and how much bandwidth needed.
Ermano Quartero, managing executive of products and services at Vodacom Business says, “Companies are facing increasing bandwidth requirements as they deploy more high-bandwidth applications, such as voice, video and networked storage.  But in order to deploy these applications, companies need a high-bandwidth, low cost, reliable “last mile” service. Vodacom Business is able to now meet these needs with its Metro E service.”
Metro E is based on Vodacom’s extensive, high capacity optical fibre infrastructure which is centred on Vodacom Business’ Service Hubs in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban.
“Metro E provides companies with more control over their information and communications infrastructure, supported by the latest optic fibre solution. And as Vodacom Business owns the last mile, there is no need for third party suppliers – ensuring a guaranteed, managed Quality of Service.”
Benefits include super-fast connections with evenly matched upload/download speeds and the option to buy data in increments of 2Mbps.
Metro E is available immediately to all businesses based in South Africa’s major metropolitan areas.
