BT Deploys Alcatel for VPLS Service

BT is using an Alcatel solution for its recently launched EVLAN service, which provides Ethernet connectivity for multi-site organizations.

The new BT EVLAN service, which is initially available in London and will be rolled-out to other UK metro areas later this year, provides secure any-to-any Ethernet connectivity between multiple sites in a single metro area. BT is offering access speeds from 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps and an open IP environment that allows companies to manage their own IP layer if they choose.

EVLAN is one of the first services to be launched as part of BT's 21CN initiative.
