The technical specifications and performance standards applicable to the Service are set forth in Schedule A-1 hereto. The service level agreement applicable to the Service is set forth in a Schedule A-2 hereto.


Single Point Global’s Ethernet Transport Services (“Service(s)”) will be provided in accordance with the service descriptions, technical specifications and performance standards set forth below:


  1. Latency. Latency, also known as Frame Delay, is defined as the maximum delay measured for a portion of successfully delivered service frames over a 30-day period.
  2. Jitter. Jitter, also known as Frame Delay Variation, is defined as the short-term variations measured for a portion of successfully delivered service frames over a 30-day period.
  3. Packet Loss. Packet Loss, also known as Frame Loss, is the difference between the number of service frames transmitted at the ingress UNI and the total number of service frames received at the egress UNI over a 30-day period.

Service Descriptions

  1. Ethernet Private Line (EPL). EPL service enables customers to connect their Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) using a lower cost Ethernet interface. EPL service enables customers to use any VLANs or Ethernet control protocol across the service without coordination with Single Point Global. EPL service provides one Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) between two customer locations. EPL offers three Classes of Service (CoS) including: Basic, Priority, and Premium. CoS options enable customers to select the CoS that best meets their applications’ performance requirements. EPL service is offered with 10/100Mbps, 1Gbps, or 10 Gbps Ethernet User-to-Network Interfaces (UNI) and is available in speed increments starting at 1Mbps. The EPL Service is only available with a Basic CoS when delivered over a Single Point Global HFC Network.
  2. Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL). EVPL service provides an Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) between two customer locations similar to Ethernet Private Line service but supports the added flexibility to multiplex multiple services (EVCs) on a single UNI at a customer’s hub or aggregation site. The service multiplexing capability is not available at sites served by the Single Point Global HFC Network. EVPL offers three Classes of Service (CoS) including: Basic, Priority, and Premium. CoS options enable customers to select the CoS that best meets their applications’ performance requirements. The service is offered with 10/100Mbps, 1Gbps, or 10 Gbps Ethernet User-to-Network Interfaces (UNI) and is available in speed increments starting at 1Mbps. The EVPL Service is only available with a Basic CoS when delivered over a Single Point Global HFC Network.

Technical Specifications and Performance Standards for Services

    1. User-to-Network Interface. The Services provides the bidirectional, full duplex transmission of Ethernet frames using a standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interface. Figure 1 provides a list of available UNI physical interfaces and their available Committed Information Rate (CIR) bandwidth increments and Committed Burst Sizes (CBS). CIR increments of less than 10 Mbps are not available in conjunction with Off-Net Services.


Figure 1: Available UNI interface types and CBS values for different CIR Increments

    1. Class of Service Option. Except as indicated below, Single Point Global On-Net Ethernet Transport Services are available with three different classes of service. The CoS options allow for differentiated service performance levels for different types of network traffic. CoS is used to prioritize customer mission-critical traffic from lesser priority traffic in the network. The customer must specify a CIR for each CoS to indicate how much bandwidth should be assigned to each CoS. Only Basic CoS is available for Off-Net Services and On-Net Services delivered via the HFC Network. The performance metrics associated with each CoS are set forth in Attachment A-1.1 to the Product-Specific Attachment for Ethernet Service.
    2. CoS Identification and Marking. Customer must mark all packets using 802.1p CoS values as specified in Figure 3 to ensure the service will provide the intended CoS performance objectives.


  1. Traffic Management. Single Point Global’s network traffic-policing policies restrict traffic flows to the subscribed CIR for each service class. If the customer-transmitted bandwidth rate for any CoS exceeds the subscription rate (CIR) and burst size (CBS), Single Point Global will discard the non-conformant packets. For packets marked with a non-conformant CoS marking, the service will transmit them using the Basic service class without altering the customer’s CoS markings. Traffic management policies associated with Off-Net Services will conform to the policies enforced by the third-party service provider.
  2. Maximum Frame Size. The service supports a Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) packet size of 1600 bytes to support untagged or 802.1Q tagged packet sizes. Jumbo Frame sizes can be supported on an Individual Case Basis (ICB).


Ethernet Transport Services

Single Point Global’s Ethernet Transport Services is backed by the following Service Level Agreement (“SLA”):


Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Ethernet Transport Services PSA or the General Terms and Conditions.

“Planned Service Interruption” means any Service Interruption caused by planned work such as scheduled maintenance or planned enhancements or upgrades to the network.

“Service Interruption” means a complete loss of signal that renders the Service unusable.

Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Company’s liability for any Service Interruption (individually or collectively, “Liability”), shall be limited to the amounts set forth in the Tables below. For the purposes of calculating credit for any such Liability, the Liability period begins when the Customer reports to Company an interruption in the portion of the Service, provided that the Liability is reported by Customer during the duration of the Liability, and, a trouble ticket is opened; the Liability shall be deemed resolved upon closing of the same trouble ticket or the termination of the interruption, if sooner, less any time Company is awaiting additional information or premises testing from the Customer. In no event shall the total amount of credit issued to Customer’s account on a per-month basis exceed 50% of the total monthly recurring charge (“MRC”) associated with the impacted portion of the Service set forth in the Sales Order. Service Interruptions will not be aggregated for purposes of determining credit allowances. To qualify, Customer must request the Credit from Single Point Global within thirty (30) days of the interruption. Customer will not be entitled to any additional credits for Service Interruptions. Single Point Global shall not be liable for any Liability caused by force majeure events, Planned Service Interruptions or Customer actions, omission or equipment.
