Ignite EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) delivers resilient, uncontended, internet connectivity to your business with symmetrical speeds of up to 20Mbps.
Making use of copper pairs to connect to your local exchange, Ignite’s EFM solutions are ideal where no Ethernet is available, offering a cost effective solution for guaranteed bandwidth. It is also a dedicated solution, giving your business greater levels of reliability and data throughput than can be achieved via shared DSL services.
EFM is a technology that uses multiple pairs of copper pairs (in the first mile where bottlenecks usually occur) representing a resilient alternative to fibre-based Ethernet, which is more expensive and takes longer to deliver.
EFM uses a combination of either 2 or 4 copper pairs and the service will continue to run (albeit more slowly) in the event that any single copper pair fails.
Ignite EFM is a more affordable service for SME organisations that rely heavily on their internet services.
EFM offers guaranteed, uncontended speeds of up to 20Mbps, the same for both upstream and downstream.
