Eclipse Release Entry Level Product to Channel

Tomlinson

Eclipse is delighted to be launching a new reliable and entry level priced leased line product to the channel.
EoFTTC (Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet) takes advantage of the billions of pounds that has been invested by BT Group and the Government in rolling out high speed fibre broadband across the UK, but with a twist – it’s been transformed into a fully business grade solution.

This new solution provides guaranteed symmetrical speeds of up to 20Mb with download speeds of up to 80Mb. Most importantly, it’s backed by a service level agreement worthy of the highest performance and traditionally higher priced fibre optic leased lines. This makes it perfect for business critical applications that end customers are now adopting, including IP Voice and hosting business applications in the cloud.

Already available at around two thirds of business premises, coverage is set to grow, underpinned by the government’s commitment to roll out fibre based broadband services.

“The addition of EoFTTC to a reseller’s portfolio bridges that gap between the need for a dependable connection with the challenges of a limited budget.” comments Pete Tomlinson, Director of Product, Marketing & Sales at Eclipse. “With the growing adoption of hosted applications and services from businesses of all sizes, and the increased strains business connectivity is expected to cope with, the opportunity for this product is huge. Having the ability to offer an affordable mid-range solution that delivers the robustness of a business class service simply widens the net for our partners and opens up new conversations that wouldn’t have been possible before”.

The new Eclipse EoFTTC Leased Line service offers the following benefits:

•Guaranteed speed of up to 20Mb symmetrical and up to 80Mb download
•Optimised for business critical applications such as voice and video
•Committed 8 hour fault fix time with pro-active performance alerts
•Back up options via resilient business broadband services
•Fully managed installation service offered
•Available as an internet facing service or connection to a private network
•Integration with other access technologies, such as Fibre, Ethernet First Mile or Bonded DSL

Leased line benefits at a price point that businesses of all sizes can afford, demand for this access technology is expected to be strong, especially when a recent survey found quality internet connectivity was now underpinning the 86% of businesses running one of more cloud application.
