What is an ethernet private line

APX Private Lines use point-to-point Ethernet connections to quickly and securely move high volumes of data between two sites, such as your headquarters and data center, without traversing the public Internet. Since your data isn’t touching the Internet, Private Lines are ideal for obtaining security certifications and complying with data privacy regulations.

Additionally, Private Lines create dedicated links that aren’t shared with other businesses, so you get guaranteed speeds and throughput.

What’s more, our Private Lines can carry all types of mission critical data with a high quality of service (QoS). They’re designed for critical applications and data backup and restoration as well as real-time collaboration with video conferencing.

How Does an Ethernet Private Line Work?

Our Ethernet Private Lines combines the simplicity of Ethernet with the security of point-to-point connections. We provision a point-to-point virtual dedicated connection through our network between two user network interfaces (UNIs) on your network equipment (i.e., network routers) at each business location.

Ethernet private lines can be provisioned over fiber, copper, DS1/DS3, or DOCSIS. We recommend Ethernet over Fiber connections wherever possible.
