Cable Internet

In telecommunications, cable Internet access, shortened to cable Internet, is a form of broadband Internet access which uses the same infrastructure as a cable television. Like digital subscriber line and fiber to the premises services, cable Internet access provides network edge connectivity from the Internet service provider to an end user.

Cable TV

Cable television is a system of delivering television programming to paying subscribers via radio frequency signals transmitted through coaxial cables, or in more recent systems, light pulses through fiber-optic cables.

Fiber Internet

Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber. The light forms an electromagnetic carrier wave that is modulated to carry information. Fiber is preferred over electrical cabling when high bandwidth, long distance, or immunity to electromagnetic interference are required.


Plain old telephone service or plain ordinary telephone service is a retronym for voice-grade telephone service employing analog signal transmission over copper loops. POTS was the standard service offering from telephone companies from 1876 until 1988 when the Integrated Services Digital Network Basic Rate Interface was introduced, followed by cellular telephone systems, and voice over IP.

Gigabit Ethernet

In computer networking, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE or 1 GigE) is a term describing various technologies for transmitting Ethernet frames at a rate of a gigabit per second (1,000,000,000 bits per second), as defined by the IEEE 802.3-2008 standard. It came into use beginning in 1999, gradually supplanting Fast Ethernet in wired local networks, as a result of being considerably faster. The cables and equipment are very similar to previous standards and have been very common and economical since 2010.

Hosted PBX

Hosted PBX is an advanced cloud-based hosted telephone system, delivering business-grade voice service over Cox Business’s private network. With its flexibility, it eliminates the complexity of traditional PBX systems and unites your entire business with a single communications platform.

Managed Private Ethernet

Maximum speed and capacity over your own dedicated fiber strands.

Metro Ethernet

Metro Ethernet is the use of Carrier Ethernet technology in metropolitan area networks (MANs). Because it is typically a collective endeavor with numerous financial contributors, Metro Ethernet offers cost-effectiveness, reliability, scalability and bandwidth management superior to most proprietary networks.

Optical Carrier levels (OCx)

The Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) includes a set of signal rate multiples for transmitting digital signals on optical fiber. The base rate (OC-1) is 51.84 Mbps. Certain multiples of the base rate are provided as shown in the following table. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) makes use of some of the Optical Carrier levels.

Private Wavelength

Fast, long-distance data transmission over a private wavelength.
