Telarus today announced the launch of a new marketing web site that focuses on businesses looking for Ethernet over Copper (EoC), Ethernet over Serial (DS1), fast (100 mbps) and gigabit (1 gbps) Ethernet broadband availability: ShopforEthernet. The web site, powered by GeoQuote and Google maps, enables the general public to search for lit buildings where broadband carriers have a physical presence. The results are displayed on a dynamically generated map for easy viewing.
“We are very excited about the launch of ShopforEthernet,” commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “Giving the public visibility into the location of telecommunications equipment is a major advance in this industry, which has traditionally kept this information very close to the vest.”
Finding “lit” buildings where Ethernet broadband is available is very important to larger companies with high bandwidth requirements. By plugging in directly to a telecommunications carrier via Ethernet, customers avoid the expensive loop charges assessed by the local phone company.

MegaPath’s SecureConnect UTM services allow organizations to deploy a turnkey solution that protects against the increasing sophistication, proliferation and severity of security threats, while providing the expertise needed to protect valuable customer and proprietary information. The end-to-end solution also helps organizations to comply with regulatory and legislative security mandates, such as PCI/CISP, HIPAA, GLB, SOX, and other regulatory and legislative initiatives.
