EAD Rugged & Street Access

Ethernet for outdoor sites that need to be connected: bus shelters, lamp posts, cabinets and more. We connect local exchanges and your point of presence (PoP) locations to small, hard-wearing terminating units where they’re needed.


  • Offers reliable 100Mbps and 1Gbps bandwidth outdoors. And the network terminating equipment (NTE) is tough enough to withstand a whole range of temperatures and weather conditions. 
  • Delivers connectivity to street furniture locations for 4 and 5G network coverage in urban areas.
  • You can terminate multiple circuits onto a single hub NTE at the local exchange or PoP location.
