LAN Extension Service (LES)

Why Verizon?

Verizon puts you in control with LAN Extension Service (an Ethernet service). LES includes Ethernet terminations at your end-user locations and at your Point of Presence (POP) or Expanded Interconnection Service (EIS) collocation. You perform the switching, giving you total control over the platform, including the converter at your customer's premises.

" Verizon's fiber network is one of the most robust, survivable networks in the market today."

Need a cost-effective solution for providing customers competitively priced Ethernet-based services?

Look no further than Verizon. Our LAN Extension Service empowers you with the fiber needed to feed Ethernet capabilities -- wherever fiber facilities are available.

LAN Extension Service includes Ethernet terminations at customer locations and your POP or Expanded Interconnection Service (EIS) collocation. Verizon gives you the means. You control your own switching platform to meet customers' needs.

Verizon provisions your service over dedicated 2-pair fiber between customer desired locations. We install a fiber converter interface at customer locations for controlling the data rate at 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps. You control the switching and your customers' converters.

LES has distance limitations, based on db loss, directly associated with distance and outside loop characteristics. Coordination with your Account Team and fiber length qualification by our Engineering Group will ensure quality implementation and service.

In the absence of a fiber facility, a Special Construction ICB may be required for service provisioning.
