- METS (Multi-Megabit Ethernet Transmission Service)
Comporium’s Multi-Megabit Ethernet Transmission Service (METS) is a high-speed (10 Mbps to 10 Gbps) packet based service for the transmission of point to point LAN or WAN data between your business or businesses to the Internet via Ethernet connection from Comporium. These point to point connections can be within Comporium’s service area or outside our service area through partnerships with other carriers. METS is a fiber-based network that can either tie one or multiple business locations together through a dedicated connection. This dedicated bandwidth connection is not shared among other businesses, therefore providing a guarantee of privacy and priority. This private METS solution also offers high scalability, cost-effective connectivity that can grow with your business. In addition to Internet and point to point data LAN or WAN connections, METS can offer Comporium’s Hosted VoIP service over these connections. If your organization recognizes diversity needs, METS can also be utilized to provide your company with primary and secondary connections. By combining your data, Internet and telephony services over one private high speed Ethernet connection, there is a cost savings in addition to increased bandwidth, reliability and security.
METS allows your business the flexibility to prioritize, allocate and distribute the applicable services as needed through QoS (Quality of Service) levels, based on your unique business requirements. QoS guarantees prioritization of critical voice and/or data traffic in order for voice to receive the optimal level of performance.

- MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching)
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a standardized protocol and comprehensive networking technology that blends the best of IP routing and ATM switching. MPLS provides an extensive amount of flexibility to divert and route traffic around link failures and congestion. In MPLS networks, data packets are designated by labels and switched based on the contents of the labels. MPLS allows customers to establish services using any type of transport technology (ATM, SONET, Frame Relay, Ethernet, etc.).
