today announced the launch of Comcast Business Ethernet Services
in the eastern Kansas City, Missouri, suburban area as well as Olathe, Kansas. Designed for companies experiencing high bandwidth demands or operating in multiple locations, Comcast Business Ethernet provides secure, scalable, fiber-based connectivity to help maximize business efficiency, employee productivity and growth opportunity.
“We are excited to bring businesses in our Kansas City service area an entirely new range of product offerings,” said Kalyn Hove, vice president of Comcast Business. “Organizations of all sizes now have access to the same cutting-edge, fiber-based technologies that were once limited to only the largest companies. With our advanced network and dedicated local resources, we are committed to serving customers with speed and reliability.”
Ethernet provides significant user benefits over traditional services, including performance and scalability. As a result, it has become the dominant networking technology for businesses in a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, government, education and finance.
“We’re very pleased that Comcast has made the investment to bring true, facilities-based Ethernet services to our communities,” said Hap Graff, president and CEO of the Independence Chamber of Commerce. “As a growing and vibrant innovation hub, our businesses need the latest technology to compete in today’s world of immediate commerce and communications. We thank Comcast for their commitment to our region.”
This Ethernet expansion will provide businesses with access to a comprehensive portfolio of multi-Gigabit Ethernet options that will help meet the day-to-day demands of organizations requiring large amounts of bandwidth, looking to link multiple sites or branch locations, or planning to connect their offices to a third-party data center. Services offered include:
- Ethernet Private Line: Point-to-point connectivity between two customer sites for bandwidth-intensive applications.
- Ethernet Virtual Private Line: Point-to-multipoint connection to enable customers to tailor bandwidth, performance characteristics and cost.
