GEA (Generic Ethernet Access)

Generic Ethernet Access GEA represents the latest evolution of Ethernet connectivity technology. It combines true business-grade Ethernet connectivity with presentation at the customer site using FTTC technology, resulting in cost-effective symmetric bandwidth.

amatis GEA is perfect for home workers and for smaller branch offices on a WAN (Wide Area Network) because, unlike ADSL technologies, it is able to support end-to-end QoS (Quality of Service) with guaranteed speeds. As organisations increasingly combine voice onto their networks and the exponential growth of video use within companies continues, ADSL cannot deliver these throughput and quality guarantees.

amatis GEA is delivered at guaranteed upload and download speed of up to 20Mb/s, making it suitable for converged communications networks. It is also extremely cost-effective as a back-up connection for higher-bandwidth primary connectivity as it supports all the same features.

The amatis GEA service is backed up by an 8 hour fix SLA meaning that, in the unlikely event of an issue, customers can be sure their connectivity will be restored quickly.

Another key benefit of the amatis GEA service is that provisioning lead times, compared to other Ethernet access technologies, are significantly shorter at 20 working days.

GEA is not yet available everywhere, although there is an on-going roll out program throughout the UK. So please give us a call on 0118 321 9944 and we will be happy to check availability for you.
