Metro Connect provides optical Layer 1 or packet-based Layer 2 services. All Metro Connect service types include the following:
End-to-end connection that includes a cross connect at the customer demarcation in our IBX facility (typically the customer cage fiber distribution panel), or terminating in a Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR), in the case of an Extended Metro Connect.
Media converters where necessary, except in the APAC region where an incremental charge might be applied.
The only items not included are patch cables from the patch panels to a customer’s equipment. These cables can be ordered using theSmart Handsservice.
All service types support a minimum MTU size of 9100 bytes. All interfaces are set to full duplex. Layer 2 Ethernet services support 802.1ad (QinQ) in most locations.
