MegaPath is one of the largest nationwide facilities-based providers
of data, voice, and managed security services. Our reach is
nationwide—with 4200 core central offices (COs) plus 25,000
in our extended area that provide service everywhere in the
U.S. We privately manage our network, so we can guarantee reliability
and security of all your business communication services. A
key advantage of MegaPath lies in our large nationwide coverage
and secure network. The MegaPath network has the potential of
reaching 11 million businesses and 90 million households nationally.
The Value of a Secure Network
Core Security. MegaPath’s security offers comprehensive
unified threat management (UTM) that includes Advanced Firewall,
Intrusion Prevention, Anti-virus protection, and Web Filtering,
Anti-spam, Web Application Control, and Data Loss prevention.
All UTM services can be fully implemented in the cloud, at the
customer’s premises, or in a hybrid configuration to deliver
We manage our network with tight monitoring and packet inspection.
With deep packet inspection, we provide core security that enables
advanced network management. And, our network is carrier class;
it is fully redundant at the customer’s site and at the
core to guarantee network uptime and provide advanced monitoring
for latency, jitter, delays, and packet loss. We even offer
our Enterprise customers performance monitoring, so that they
can check on their circuits 24 / 7 /365.
Private Networking. MegaPath delivers tailored services that
address the private networking needs of multiple offices, as
well as the remote access needs of your widely distributed workforce.
We combine our VPN and security technologies with unmatched
design, deployment, monitoring, management, reporting, and support
capabilities. MegaPath’s networking services include MPLS
Networking, Managed SSL VPN,
Retail Access SSL, and Business Continuity SSL.
Compliance. MegaPath’s Compliance services are designed
to solve the tough issues of log, vulnerability, and security
information management. Our compliance services can help companies
meet numerous regulatory requirements—including PCI DSS,
FFIEC/NCUA, HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, and SOX.
Nationwide MPLS Network. With one of the largest nationwide
facilities-based networks, MegaPath provides secure services
everywhere you work. With MegaPath, you don’t have to
manage several regional providers, and you can remain confident
that your information is protected 24 / 7 / 365.
MegaPath is one of the nation’s largest facilities-based,
managed services providing voice, data, and security services
to Enterprise and SMB customers in all 50 states.
Our MPLS network (Multi-protocol Label Switching) is an Internet-based
mechanism that—with the help of labels—directs and
carries data from one network node to the next. It tags and
prioritizes video, voice, and Internet traffic moving over the
system and assigns the traffic to the correct Class of Service
(CoS). This prioritization ensures Voice over Internet Protocol
(VoIP) communications and videos have optimal sound and playback
quality. With MPLS, IT managers can control their bandwidth
costs by prioritizing data applications. To improve packet exchange,
MPLS integrates Layer 2 information about network links (bandwidth,
latency, usage) into Layer 3 (IP) within a particular system
--Speed. Because routers
only need to inspect a short label instead of the traditional
“longest-match forwarding” used at the network layer
they can forward packets faster.
--Disaster Recovery. Gives
network operators a great deal of flexibility to divert and
route traffic around link failures, congestion, and bottlenecks.
--Connectionless Services and
VPNs. Because MPLS offers a connectionless VPN, you do
not need the tunnels and encryption for network privacy, eliminating
MPLS-IP VPN creates a private meshed network of your locations
and unlike the Internet is as secure as frame relay or ATM.
--Smooth Layer 2-to-Layer 3 Transition.
Support for Layer 2 protocols also enables you to smoothly transition
from a traditional Layer 2 network such as
frame relay and ATM to an MPLS-based IP VPN without making expensive
and disruptive changes in their equipment or addressing.
--Flexible Addressing Support.
An MPLS-based IP VPN supports any type of customer IP addressing
providing enterprises with maximum flexibility.
--Network Address Translation
(NAT) is not required. Because every private address
is translated to a public address, NAT typically is a significant
inconvenience for large networks.
--Quality of Service (QoS).
Eight levels of ‘industry-best’ QoS manage data
streams based on priority and service plan.
Minimizes packet loss, jitter, and latency—making it an
ideal solution for streaming media, video, and IP voice. MegaPath

MegaPath is completing its Business Ethernet and central office
(CO) expansion, which will lead to more product offerings, greater
reliability, and enhanced performance.
By 2012, MegaPath will have the largest Ethernet over Copper
footprint in the country. Our expanded
footprint will provide customers with even greater broadband
access throughout United States.
--Ethernet over DS1. Ethernet access service with no distance
limitations for Layer 2 or IP services; business-class SLAs
--Ethernet over Copper (EoC). Cost-effective asymmetrical and
symmetrical Ethernet access service for IP services; business–class
--Ethernet over DS3. High bandwidth, high-performance Ethernet
access service with no distance limitation for Layer 2 or IP
services; business-class DS3 SLAs
MegaPath boasts of a nation-wide, three-layered network that
was custom built to address its customers’ increasingly
demanding connectivity and virtual solution needs. Scalability,
reliability, and availability are the pillars of excellence
on which Mega Path’s network is designed and built.
Physical Layer. MegaPath built an all-optical (dark lit fiber)
redundant backbone that connects our key markets in multiple
physical paths for redundancy and scalability.
Data Layer. MegaPath built an Ethernet-enabled core that connects
the 50 major markets that constitute MegaPath’s on-net
footprint. Using this feature-rich Ethernet transport mechanism,
MegaPath offers homogenous Ethernet solutions between end-user
sites while providing redundant and traffic-engineered switched
paths for customer traffic.
IP Layer. MegaPath engineered an MPLS-based high-performance
telecommunication network that with the help of labels directs
and carries data from one network node to the next. Using this
capability, MegaPath can offer Class of Service (CoS) capability
to address our customers’ real-time and critical applications’
traffic needs. The MPLS core also enables MegaPath to ensure
maximum availability while reducing the number of hops, traversal
times, and amount of congestion in our network. Supporting our
MPLS network is a nationwide IP backbone with redundancy and
enough capacity to handle all customer bandwidth demands.
The MegaPath Network and Security Operations Center (NOC/SOC),
Customer Support team, and Service Delivery team use carrier-class
Network Management Systems (NMS) and Operations Support Systems
(OSS) to enhance their capabilities and ensure that customers
receive the service they deserve. We tailored these systems
to support our multi-service MPLS network and diverse service
offerings. The result is a seamlessly integrated systems infrastructure
designed to support all of our access providers and last-mile
access technologies, VPN and security options (SSL, MPLS-managed
Firewall, and IPSec), and network applications (VoIP and Hotspot).
They also provide our customers with complete visibility through
the Mega Path Customer Portal.
