Telstra International Launches Global VPLS and EVPL

Telstra International is now offering an expanded range of Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) services across the US, Asia and Europe.

Telstra International's Global Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) will provide multinational companies with a fully meshed, secure WAN connection over multiple global sites, while customers looking for point-to-point or point to multi-point connections can use the Global Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL). Both services operate at Layer 2, enabling customers to maintain control of their routing environment.

The new EVPL and VPLS , available immediately, will be supported by expanded Service Level Agreements, with enhanced service levels for all performance metrics including availability, latency, jitter, throughput, mean time to repair and service delivery.

These two new services join Telstra International's existing Global Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service to form Telstra International's global Ethernet Services portfolio, which allows customers to select from six classes of service and offers support for Virtual Local Area Network (LAN) tagging, all running across its global MPLS infrastructure.

The services are available throughout 12 countries.
