Telstra expands Ethernet services portfolio

To provide customers with secure bandwidth and the ability to support a range of network configurations

By CBR Staff Writer

Telstra International has expanded its range of Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) services to provide customers with a range of Ethernet connectivity options across the US, Asia and Europe.

Telstra said that the new offerings, Global Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and Global Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL), will enable multinational companies to establish connections with regional offices.

According to Telstra, the new VPLS will provide multinational companies with secure WAN connection over multiple global sites, while customers looking for point-to-point or point to multi-point connections can use the new EVPL. Both services operate at Layer 2, enabling them to be suitable for customers who prefer to maintain control of their routing environment.

The company said that these two new services join its existing Global Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service to form Ethernet Services portfolio, which is designed to address a variety of customer demands.

The new ethernet WAN products will provide customers with secure bandwidth and the ability to support a range of network configurations. The new ethernet suite is expected to allow customers to select from six classes of service and offers support for Virtual Local Area Network (LAN) tagging, all running across its MPLS infrastructure.

Gina Nomellini, general manager of global products at Telstra, said: “Launching these services on an international scale and utilising the strength of our coverage in the Asia Pacific region allows our customers to enjoy simple-to-manage, secure and flexible network connections across 29 points of presence in 12 countries across the globe.
