The Ethernet Line service enables you to deploy point-to-point or point-to-multipoint network connections between your LANs, servers, and storage units for secure and cost-effective data transfers.



Ethernet Line is available in two service configurations:
 
  • Ethernet Private Line (EPL) – a port-based service that enables you to manage data protocols and create your own VLANs easily. The EPL service option provides a high degree of data protocol transparency. By configuring multiple CE-VLAN IDs, you can create and manage several virtual connections over a single port for different business applications.

  • Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) – this port + VLAN-based (802.1Q) service variant provides limited protocol transparency. The EVPL service is a comprehensive, easy-to-manage option that allows service multiplexing (a point-to-multipoint solution) at your location
