Neos Networks has launched its new Ethernet over FTTx (EoFTTx) service.

The new 1Gbps solution has been purpose-built to support growing demand for a full suite of Ethernet services. As a result, Neos Networks can support a range of capacities up to 100Gbps through its online pricing portal LIVEQUOTE.

Specifically, EoFTTx will enable end-user businesses, public organisations, service providers and alternative networks providers to access Ethernet services at lower capacities and at a lower price point.

“We are delighted to unveil Ethernet over FTTx as our first product launch from our new brand Neos Networks. The launch signifies our commitment to bringing best in class connectivity solutions to UK organisations as their business requirements evolve,” said Mark Charlesworth, product director at Neos Networks.

“Hybrid Ethernet solutions like EoFTTx enable more organisations to access high quality business connectivity services. This, in turn, will help support the UK’s drive for greater fibre connectivity.”

Neos Networks, formerly SSE Enterprise Telecoms, will use its own fibre network as well as Openreach’s access product to deploy Ethernet over FTTx via Ethernet over Fibre to The Cabinet (EoFTTC) and Ethernet over Fibre to The Premise (EoFTTP).

The news comes as Neos Networks continues its network expansion programme, which aims to grow its fibre network to over 30,000km by the end of 2021. In tandem, the business is expanding its exchange footprint with over 550 exchanges on-net by the end of the year.

“Ethernet over FTTx is an extremely exciting addition to our expanding product portfolio and will further support the diverse demands of our customers,” added Simon Willmott, director of wholesale business development at Neos Networks.

“Its launch comes at a time where our network expansion programme is allowing us to reach and support more businesses across the UK than ever before, really helping us to support the nation’s digital ambitions. By enabling the connectivity ambitions of our customers today, we are helping to futureproof the UK business economy of tomorrow.”
