Frontier Communications Enhances Ethernet Portfolio

Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:FTR) continues to enhance its Ethernet portfolio, now offering traffic prioritization based on user-defined applications. New Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities significantly improve network efficiencies and availability by prioritizing critical applications.

Frontier is introducing two new Ethernet offerings for Retail and Wholesale users. Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) Gold focuses on businesses needing point-to-point design within Frontier’s QoS-enabled markets, requiring service level agreements (SLAs) surrounding bandwidth guarantees, a limited delay in traffic prioritization and monthly reporting. Frontier’s EVPL Platinum offers premium point-to-point service for customers with real-time data delivery requirements and corresponding SLAs.

According to Stephen LeVan, Frontier’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales, “2014 will bring more enhancements to Frontier’s Ethernet portfolio, beginning with fiber QoS-enabled elements in 480 Frontier exchanges throughout Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

“The next enhancement will introduce additional exchanges utilizing our copper elements, which we believe is a key differentiator in our Ethernet Virtual Private Line offerings. All three Frontier EVPL solutions are hybrid in nature and take advantage of our growing fiber plant while leveraging our existing copper facilities for a footprint encompassing 6,373 exchanges.”

In addition to adding QoS, SLAs and Reporting, Frontier will expand and enhance its EVPL offers to include increased interface speeds, out-of-franchise capabilities, multipoint-to-multipoint configurations, and services that enable multiple Classes of Service (multi CoS) with manageability over interconnected provider networks.
