MetroLAN™

E-LAN MultiPoint-to-MultiPoint  
Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC)

Up to 3 Classes of Service per Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC)

MetroLAN™ is an E-LAN MultiPoint-to-MultiPoint Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) bridging service that provides any to any connection to two or more End-User sites, for Virtual Private Local Area Network (LAN) Services, Multipoint Layer 2 VPNs, and Transparent LAN Services.

For inter-company packet voice (VoIP) applications, Real Time is offered on a per-UNI basis and is designed to support packet voice applications over the MultiPoint-to-MultiPoint service. 

MetroLAN™ is available on 100Mbps bandwidth port speeds with 2Mbps allocated for Real Time and 1000Mbps port speeds with 10Mbps allocated for Real Time.  The percentage of Real Time is referred to as a Committed Information Rate (CIR). 

MetroLAN™ is an any to any data service connection with one MultiPoint-to-MultiPoint EVC or VLAN that provides full port native Ethernet LAN 

speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps with two Class of Service options - Basic and Real Time. 

MetroLAN™ creates a connectionless network of User Network Interfaces (UNIs), allowing for the bundling of all End-User UNIs into one single V-LAN. Is a suitable service for Metro LAN-to-LAN connectivity providing Data, inter company packet voice (VoIP) applications and allows for the End User to control their own VLANS and Layer 2 protocols.

Basic

Is for the end-user data applications that require no guarantees of performance and where cost per Mbps is the key requirement.

Priority Data

Is for the end-users a data application requiring a bandwidth guarantee and Latency is not a requirement.

Real Time

Is for end-users requiring low delay (Latency) for some of their traffic and is an ideal service class for packet voice (VoIP) and Video applications.

A persistent question of users and network operations is how well is the network operating? Quick, consistent transport of traffic across the network is very important. Customers are demanding that Service Providers maintain more stringent network performance of which are formalize with Service Level Agreements (SLA's). 

Here at Metrofibre networx our Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) have been specifically designed to ensure customers uptime of the network and the end-to-end service traffic performance. 

Performance Assurance 

For best traffic performance assurance guarantees, we track and measure the performance of traffic transiting across the entire Metrofibre networx, from customer interface to customer interface, with our Network Performance Management system that collects, monitors and measures end-to-end service performance for each MetroLANTM Class of Service (CoS) priority provisioned (Basic and Real Time).

Our MetroLANTM is monitored centrally at our state of the art Network Operations Center (NOC) to the MEF pre-defined CoS Service Performance parameter thresholds (See below).

Network-Uptime Assurance 

For the best network-uptime assurance guarantees, we ensure that our network designs have sufficient resiliency built-in to meet the most stringent of Service Level Agreements.
