Metro Private Line Service (MPL) offers point-to-point and point-to-multipoint bandwidth solutions with speeds ranging from 2.4 Kbps to OC-192 and for MPL Wave at 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps, and OC-768c. MPL Optical Dedicated Multipoint SONET ring and MPL Optical Dedicated Multipoint Wave ring systems are also part of this product set.
MPL circuits are used when originating and terminating points fall within a Local Access Transport Area (LATA) or a defined MPL corridor. If the circuit originates in one LATA and terminates in another outside of a corridor, or in LATAs in which MPL service is not available, use U.S. Private Line Service. For private line services terminating overseas, use Global Private Line Service. Metro Private Line traffic is considered jurisdictionally interstate and would be subject to FUSF charges.
