Mobile Ethernet Core 2 (MEC 2)

Connect all of your mobile sites to your central sites via Orange’s Ethernet network

This solution concentrates your antenna sites’ Ethernet connections on your central sites, with delivery to 24 collection regions in mainland France and within overseas departments.

Based on fibre optic or radio transmission technology, MEC 2 already has more than 10,000 connected antenna sites that are benefiting from a virtually unlimited increased throughput, thanks to the majority use of fibre optics.

If Orange has already connected the antenna site with fibre, the average time is 8 weeks. If the site is not yet connected with fibre, the average time is 12 weeks.

The lead time provided in the feasibility study results is binding and becomes contractual (agreed delivery date) once the firm order has been placed by the client. The agreed date can only be changed if, during the Client Operations Plan (COP), it is discovered that extensive works need to be carried out by the client.

We provide you with two methods to keep track of the installation stages for a Mobile Ethernet Core 2 access:

  • via the  Data Monitoring app, you can view all the necessary information on the installation of your mobile Ethernet accesses.
  • via the provision of a  Project Production Manager (PPM), throughout the duration of the contract (basic service provided at no extra cost). S/he will give you regular reports.

The prices sent back to you in the results of the feasibility study include any Exceptional Construction Difficulties that may arise. The amount quoted can under no circumstances be changed during the firm order phase.
