" An Ethernet over SONET/Ethernet Private Line product leveraging the simplicity of Ethernet with the resiliency and reliability of SONET."

Product Manager - Lawrence P Lewis III



Gain a competitive edge with our Verizon Optical Networking service. Verizon Optical Networking offers point-to-point, dedicated Ethernet private line service for intraLATA access applications. The Verizon Optical Networking platform allows the seamless convergence of voice and data so your customers receive a single LAN/WAN network solution while purchasing only the bandwidth they need.

Designed to give customers scalable, affordable, end-to-end transport, Verizon Optical Networking is easy to configure for local and long distance applications. You can offer Ethernet protocols at various speeds between customer locations without customers converting legacy interfaces. High-bandwidth Ethernet transport is more robust using Verizon Optical Networking and available in a variety of speeds -- 10 and 100 Mbps, GigE full rate and GigE partial rates at 50, 100, 150, 300, 450 and 600 Mbps -- so you can meet customers' changing needs. FICON, Fibre Channel and an Access Aggregation port are also available. Verizon Optical Networking is next-generation Ethernet service at its best.

Verizon Optical Networking is point-to-point, dedicated private line, Ethernet service within the Ethernet portfolio of Verizon Wholesale services. A Verizon Optical Networking circuit provides a dedicated path through the network with a variety of available throughput options. Verizon Optical Networking provides a native Ethernet interface at the end user premise with 10BaseT, FastE, FX, GigE, Fibre Channel and FICON. Ethernet to SONET mapped options are also available.

Verizon Optical Networking services are transported over Verizon's state of the art, shared Telephone Company managed network. The Verizon Optical Networking offering allows for Ethernet protocols of various speeds to be transported between two customer locations.

Next Generation Add Drop Multiplexers (NGADMs) terminate the SONET transport to provide a native Ethernet connection. In the local loop and interoffice network, SONET optimizes customer site connections providing the SONET resiliency and reliability Verizon Optical Networking delivers.

You can order channel terminations as protected circuits to dedicate bandwidth with full fiber-path diversity in the local loop. Or, you can choose unprotected circuit channel termination to afford dedicated bandwidth without guaranteed path diversity in the local loop.
