Ethernet Services

Whether you are looking to connect data centres for storage and back-up or to consolidate IT infrastructure running corporate applications, you need a flexible, high bandwidth networking solution.

When the fixed latency of an optical circuit is not required, transparent Layer-2 Ethernet services can be delivered over our MPLS packet-switched core network for greater efficiencies without compromising on service quality. Vtesse Ethernet services offer speeds from 10Mb/s up to 1Gb/s, with national UK coverage and a choice between fibre and copper-based delivery at most sites.  Vtesse offers two main MPLS-based Ethernet products, Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet Virtual Private Network (E-VPN)

Ethernet Private Line (EPL)

EPL is a point-point service delivered over the Vtesse MPLS core network. It benefits from the efficiency and multi-level QoS capability of a packet-switched service yet looks and feels like a dedicated point-point circuit.  Stringent SLAs guarantee Latency, jitter and packet loss, and premium MEF(Metro Ethernet Forum) functionality is available as an optional extra. EPL is the ideal solution for mid-to-low speed data transfer between two fixed locations

Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN)

EVPN is a point-multipoint service that can enable multiple sites to establish an any-any network that is nevertheless an entirely transparent Layer-2 service.  Essentially, the service works just like  a virtual cloud-based Ethernet switch. This allows you to maintain control over your layer-3 routing topology without compromising  on speed or performance.  E-VPN is the ideal solution to link together a number of key corporate locations  into a single secure private network.
