Overview Download PDF

GigaMAN® Service is a dedicated, fiber-optic, point-to-point gigabit Ethernet service that links your local area networks (LANs) within a metropolitan or regional area. GigaMAN service uses the same transmission protocol as your LAN, allowing you to take full advantage of your enterprise LAN speeds while transmitting data between your sites.


GigaMAN Service transmits data at a rate of up to 1.0 gigabits per second – 22 times faster than DS3 service – across the street or across town. GigaMAN service connects your existing gigabit Ethernet switches with dedicated, single-mode fibers. At each demarc (demarcation point), we install specialized fiber repeaters to serve as network terminating equipment (NTE). The equipment interface is the standard SC (stick and click) connection for multi-mode or single-mode fiber cable.
