Layer 2 Products

Being MEF carrier ethernet 2.0 compliant enables us to provide fibre business services with world- class carrier compliant Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The services are proactively monitored all the way to the User Network Interface (UNI) where the Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) connects.

MetroLine

An E-Line service as defined by the MEF is for connecting exactly two UNIs where those two UNIs can communicate only with one another. This is based on Point-to-Point Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs). The service can be delivered port-based (EPL) or VLAN-based (EVPL). EPL is ideal for replacing legacy E1 leased lines and EVPL is ideal for replacing legacy frame relay circuits.

MetroLAN

An E-LAN service as defined by the MEF is for connecting two or more UNIs providing full mesh connectivity for those sites. This is based on Multipoint-to-Multipoint EVCs. The service can be delivered port-based (EP-LAN) or VLAN-based (EVP-LAN). E-LAN is ideal for replacing multipoint IP-VPN and ATM TLS services and EP-LAN provides transparent extension of the LAN over the WAN.

MetroTree

An E-Tree service as defined by the MEF is for connecting a number of UNIs providing sites with a hub and spoke topology. Each UNI is designated as either root or leaf. A root UNI can communicate with any leaf UNI, while a leaf UNI can communicate only with a root UNI. This is based on a Rooted Multipoint EVC. The service can be delivered port-based (EPTree) or VLAN-based (EVP-Tree). E-Tree is ideal for residential broadband providers where UNI to UNI connectivity is not desired.

Service Level Agreements

Being MEF carrier ethernet 2.0 compliant enables us to provide fibre business services with world- class carrier compliant Service Level Agreements (SLAs). The services are proactively monitored all the way to the User Network Interface (UNI) where the Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) connects.
