System Force provides a range of EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) circuit options to help businesses balance demand for resilient and synchronous bandwidth with cost effective investment and peace of mind.

Our EFM solutions use between two and eight copper pairs to deliver synchronous Ethernet speeds from 2Mbps to 35Mbps to ideally serve businesses situated within 4.8km of the serving exchange. The distance between premises and serving exchange and also the bandwidth requirement determines the number of copper pairs to be used, with installation from as little as 22 working days. Our EFM solutions include backup options, receive 24/7 UK based technical support and guarantee a return to service within 9 business hours in the unlikely event of a circuit failure.

EFM takes business broadband to the next level as it enables the support of IP VPNs and VoIP as well as hosted cloud services, yet remains a cost effective alternative to leased lines together with the added benefit of shorter installation times.
