Level 3's goal is to deliver a single, global Ethernet platform that delivers a customer-defined networking experience, one where enterprises respond to changing business needs by interacting with and creating their own telecom services on demand and in real time based on a holistic view of their network.
Level 3’s Ethernet solutions are available in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations and its Metro 2.0 Ethernet platform supports E-Line, E-Access and Cloud Service Provider (CSP) connectivity and is backed by service levels for latency and on-net availability of up to 99.999 percent. With Level 3’s Adaptive Network Control with Dynamic Capacity, enterprises have network flexibility that allows them to scale their bandwidth needs based on scheduling, ad hoc requirements, or predefined thresholds, which can reduce service disruption, cumbersome paperwork or delays associated with traditional service changes. Level 3 Enhanced Management offers advanced network analytics, and when paired with Dynamic Capacity, the ability to set threshold-driven network triggers that automatically adjust bandwidth to meet business needs. .
