2 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 unprecedented security. 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. The Value of a Secure Network 2

3 Network Coverage 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 or ISP. The Value of a Secure Network 3

4 Network Advantages --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 significant complexity. --Any-to-Any Connectivity. 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. --Improved performance. Minimizes packet loss, jitter, and latency making it an ideal solution for streaming media, video, and IP voice. MegaPath Nationwide Footprint. With a core area of 4,200 Central Offices (COs) and an extended reach of an additional 25,000 COs, MegaPath provides broadband access to businesses through the United States, with service in all 50 states.

7 Core 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 Value of a Secure Network 7

8 Network Systems 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.
