What is a Point to Point EAD Connection?
An EAD connection is a private high-performance circuit which can carry data, voice, or both. It links two locations together with a low latency link between local sites up to 25 km apart. For example, between a HQ and a branch office in Bristol.
Do EAD lines provide an internet connection?
No, an EAD line between two locations only connects the two sites at a LAN level. This means the two sites can talk to each other but without a seperate internet connection at one of the sites there will be no internet break out.
Why Would I Need an EAD?
EAD is a good connectivity option for businesses who quickly need to expand their private network to reach a new location, site or office.
What is the ITEC SLA time for EAD?
Resolved within 4 hours.
