Build customer loyalty

The increasing demand for mobile data, content (Video on Demand, IPTV), and high-speed or high-volume internet data plans has resulted in an equally fast growing need for backhaul bandwidth.

Telstra Wholesale’s MEF CE 2.0 certified Ethernet Backhaul can help you meet the challenge with backhaul connectivity into Telstra equipment buildings, between your Points of Presence (PoPs) and data centres or to your centralised core mobile network.

Ethernet Backhaul now supports both the MEF-defined E-Access and E-Line service types providing you greater service-design flexibility and compliance to international standards.

Our Ethernet Backhaul product can be customised as your demand grows, helping you to improve operational efficiencies, decrease time-to-market and build customer loyalty.
