High-performance network access is a key to cloud success because it ensures users can reach cloud systems quickly and reliably.

Lumos Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) provides a secure, reliable connection to the Internet that has guaranteed bandwidth and the ability to burst to additional capacity during peak traffic periods. This combination of dedicated bandwidth, burstability, and resilient access helps ensure that your business is always online, at the speed you need.

Content is exploding, online transactions are growing exponentially, cloud applications abound, and the need for information storage and business continuity is greater than ever. In this environment, content and data are king, which means bandwidth is too. Enterprise and carriers must have high capacity connectivity to move these mountains of information.

Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 MEF certification for E-Access identifies Lumos Networks as the first U.S provider to have met the stringent requirements that the MEF demands for certification. In addition to E-Access service, Lumos is also MEF 2.0-certified for E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Tree services. Certification means you can depend on services provided at the highest standards with consistent networks and equipment.

To keep business moving and protect against outages, many organizations want resiliency for their on-net access to the Lumos network. Our Local Ring Enhancement (LRE) service meets this need by providing route and hardware diversity that can be added on to Lumos’ standard on-net, SONET and Metro Ethernet access.

When carriers deploy small cells, they need to extend, or fronthaul, their network to reach these cells, which requires connectivity with maximum performance and scalability. Otherwise, the fronthaul network to the small cells becomes a bottleneck. Lumos Dark Fiber is the answer to low-latency, high-capacity links for fronthaul.
