Charter Delivers Long-Haul Ethernet over MPLS Backbone

Charter Communications, which is the fourth largest cable operator in the U.S., introduced a long-haul Ethernet option for its Charter Business Optical Ethernet service. The long-haul service extends the reach of Optical Ethernet service beyond a metro area, allowing enterprise and carrier customers to seamlessly connect multiple business locations within Charter's network footprint, regardless of distance.

The long-haul Ethernet transport service is carried over the company's nationwide MPLS network. Charter's national backbone currently transports more than 300 Gbps of traffic and will now leverage that capability to extend the reach of commercial services.
