Adding video, cloud services, guest Wi-Fi, or other new applications to your branch office? You can get inexpensive network bandwidth to accommodate them without trading off performance, security, or reliability. Add FirstNet’s EtherConnect product at your branch office and allow your branch office to access cloud services directly with similar security and control of MPLS networks.

Let’s say you already have a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) service with another service provider, for example. You find yourself needing to add more bandwidth while facing budget constraints. FirstNet’s EtherConnect product can be run alongside your MPLS enabling you to control traffic, apply quality of service (QoS), security, and WAN acceleration capabilities over the less expensive FirstNet EtherConnect product to get the same business-grade functions as your MPLS VPN. You could save significant amounts of money monthly on your WAN services bill.
