Since its invention in the 1970s, Ethernet has been one of the most significant innovations for businesses of all sizes. It has evolved from Local Area Networks (that connect computers in a limited area such as an office building) to Metro Area Networks (that connect networks that are geographically separated but in the same city) and now to Carrier Ethernet (that connect service providers across the country and around the world) in order to deliver one unified solution to customers.
"Although Carrier Ethernet was designed for large companies, many small and medium-sized business leaders across the country have told us they have the same growing needs for speed and Carrier Ethernet technology," explains
With CE 2.0, Canadian businesses can experience the many benefits of network consolidation, including the elimination of separate voice, video, data and Internet network connections, while being able to manage network performance and quality of service like never before. The bottom line is that with CE 2.0, Canadian businesses of all sizes will now have greater control managing their network while realizing cost savings as circuits are consolidated and companies shift to centralized (vs. localized) management. In doing so, they will have peace of mind knowing they are using a premium quality service that meets the highest level of global standards.
"We congratulate Primus on being the first national Canadian telecom service provider to achieve CE 2.0 certification. CE 2.0 means that Primus can offer their business customers multiple classes of service, greater manageability and easier interconnects across the country," says
Affordable access to speed, quality of service, and scalability will allow Canadian companies to more effectively compete and succeed regionally, nationally and globally.
"The entire Canadian economy is being transformed by Internet-delivered cloud computing services that allow small to medium-sized businesses access to increasingly capable technology at manageable prices," explains
