Metro Optical Ethernet

Convenient, Scalable, High-bandwidth Connections for Internet Connectivity and Metro Networking

Metro Optical Ethernet (MOE) provides scalable bandwidth solutions designed to meet your growing business needs. MOE combines the convenience of Ethernet connectivity with flexibility of multiple bandwidth choices, resulting in rapid deployment with simple, economical upgrades. A MOE solution is typically less expensive than any other metro transport service. What’s more, granularity of service means that, unlike synchronous optical network (SONET), you can obtain precisely the bandwidth you need, whenever you need it. Regardless of the size or nature of your business, MOE gives you the connectivity you require and the performance you need from a provider with experience you trust.


MOE provides local area network (LAN)-to-LAN connectivity between your locations within a metropolitan area. Delivered using native Ethernet protocol, the service combines the power of Ethernet and fiber optical technologies across metropolitan area networks (MANs) providing you scalable bandwidth, high reliability and high performance, all at a relatively low cost. The solution is suitable for Internet and voice applications. MOE is ideal for delivering high speed Internet and multiple SIP trunks, and Analog or PRI lines over the same connection.


  • Point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint configurations – great for enterprises with multiple locations.
  • Dedicated bandwidth, delivered in incremental throughput speeds: 5 to 1000+ Mbps
  • Symmetrical delivery – same upload and download speeds
  • Speed changes are fast and easy
  • Simple pricing based on bandwidth
  • Service level agreement for 5 nines (99.999%) availability
  • Provides industry standard native Ethernet interfaces
  • Supports VLAN tagging for security
  • Excellent choice for Converged Voice Services (with full QOS support)
  • Custom solutions can be engineered for your exact Internet or networking needs


  • Availability: Fiber optic networks from multiple vendors ensures wide availability throughout the Tucson, Nogales and Phoenix metro area.
  • Better value: Because DakotaPro maintains dual-homed upstream Internet connections that never exceed more than 50% of their rated capacity, you get two major Internet backbone connections for the price of one.
  • Scalability: Bandwidth changes are simple and fast—MOE can grow with your business, when you need it.  We can also design your circuit for additional “burst” capability.
  • Service flexibility: By providing the granularity of Ethernet speeds DakotaPro can better match your application needs—you buy just what you need.
  • Hosting:  If you are hosting a public server at your location, you’ll love the symmetrical speeds.
  • Reliable performance: Delivers optimal uptime for your mission-critical voice and data applications.
  • Easy to adopt: Nothing is simpler than plugging in an Ethernet cable.
  • Priced right: MOE is a mileage-insensitive, performance-priced solution based on your bandwidth needs.
  • Expertise: DakotaPro has many years of experience designing and delivering custom solutions to meet your business needs.

Additionally, your total cost of ownership (TCO) may be reduced as you need no specialized WAN expertise or equipment compared to other metropolitan solutions.
