Ethernet Services – E-Line


FairPoint Communications’ Managed Ethernet Line (E-Line) service offers a highly scalable, reliable and dedicated connection to our fiber network so data is routed over a private network — not the open Internet — providing high quality and added security. And, with multiple classes of service over a single Ethernet Virtual Connection, you can enhance your class and quality of service.


We offer two E-line solutions to keep your data and applications performing:


Ethernet Private Line (EPL) – Provides point-to-point connectivity for each circuit, ensuring dedicated transport through the network. Each circuit requires a Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) port.
Ethernet Private Line
Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) – Reduces the need for CPE ports – by employing dedicated point-to-multipoint virtual circuits – while improving the efficiency and capabilities of network transport.
