Services Available

Ethernet Services

The Ethernet-100, Ethernet-1000, and Ethernet-10000 services are Ethernet based bandwidth services that provide up to 100% of the line rate speed of the physical connection. Bandwidth included is in the Basic Class within the QoS architecture. Higher priority bandwidth is available through the QoS Option. The Ethernet class services include a single User Network Interface (UNI) and a single Virtual Private Network membership (VPN). Additional UNI ports and VPNs may be purchased in conjunction with this service.

Broadband Services

The Broadband-10 and Broadband-20 Services are Ethernet based bandwidth services. 10 Mbps and 20 Mbps of committed bandwidth are included with each service. The Broadband-10 and Broadband-20 Services are intended for locations with somewhat limited requirements for bandwidth and service complexity. They include a single User Network Interface (UNI) and a single Virtual Private Network membership (VPN). Additional VPN memberships may be purchased in conjunction with this service.

The Broadband 5 Service is an Ethernet based bandwidth service. 5 Mbps of committed bandwidth is included. The Broadband-5 Service is intended for locations with very limited requirements for bandwidth and service complexity. The Broadband-5 Service includes a single User Network Interface (UNI) and a single Virtual Private Network membership (VPN).  Additional UNI interfaces, VPN Memberships, and QoS priority bandwidth are not available with this Service.

Boston Transport Service

The Boston Transport Service provides connectivity from either of the MassBroadband 123 network Regional Gateways (Springfield and Greenfield POIs) to the Boston Global Gateways (Cambridge and Boston POIs). This option is available only for connectivity between Ethernet Services and/or NNI Services at the Regional Gateways and NNI Services at the Cambridge-Boston Global Gateway. These requirements are not meant to be restrictive but are required to provide the customer with the necessary interfaces to inject traffic into the Boston Transport Service. The option is available in 20 Mbps increments, and larger bandwidth tiers.

Network to Network Interface Services

The NNI-1000 and NNI-10000 Services provide the ability for customers to interconnect with their applicable services via a physical interface(s) at the MassBroadband 123 network Regional Gateways (Springfield and Greenfield POIs) and the MassBroadband 123 network Global Gateways (Cambridge and Boston POIs). These services allow for customers to access “off-net” services such as the Internet or an intranet as determined by the customer network.
