Based in Montecchio Maggiore (Vicenza), Interplanet provides advanced business and residential services to a rapidly growing customer base across Northern Italy. Leveraging the E7-2 and its support of VDSL2, GPON, and point-to-point gigabit Ethernet technologies, Interplanet is now empowering businesses with advanced broadband services including value-added IP telephony services, integrated voice and data communications, email services, and network security.Interplanet continues to transform its network to provide greater bandwidth and service reliability as its base of business customers grows. Interplanet utilizes the E7-2 to deliver symmetrical speeds from 10-up to 50 megabits per second (Mbps) over both GPON and point-to-point gigabit Ethernet for services that include voice and data, as well as videoconferencing and cloud applications for businesses in the Verona region.
