ETHERNET and MPLS
Today’s business applications depend on IP and Ethernet protocols, and Ethernet has emerged as the wide area network (WAN) technology of choice for commercial internet access. Whether used for dedicated internet access, connections to private cloud applications or virtual private networks, Ethernet promises an efficient, simple, scalable and cost-effective solution. Here’s why:
1. It’s Ethernet
Systems communicating over Ethernet divide a stream of data into shorter pieces called frames. Each frame contains source and destination addresses and allows error-checking of data packets so that damaged data can be detected and re-transmitted. Hence Ethernet is far more stable and reliable than standard broadband services.
Many technologies promising broadband to consumers and businesses are typically used only for Internet access or basic voice services. Ethernet meets business-class symmetric service requirements, providing scalable, reliable and manageable features with quality of service options.
2. Ethernet Over Copper
All business facilities are connected to the legacy copper voice network where Ethernet over Copper (EoC) can be installed in a matter of weeks, providing the local network has been enabled. EoC solutions include identical management, resilience and Quality of Service (QoS) features similar to their fibre counterparts, allowing a customer experience equal to fibre-based Ethernet services.
3. Ethernet Over Fibre
Fibre Optic Ethernet is a premium, high speed connectivity service for businesses that demand high availability and high capacity services. Among technologies that deliver Ethernet-based business service, fibre optic connectivity is preferred for its near limitless capacity and reliability. Speeds of up to 1Gb are available. It is provided as a dedicated connection and offers the option to converge internet and voice services, over a single connection, onto the local network.
Fibre Optic Ethernet offers a dedicated, high capacity, uncontended business class connection. Converging voice and data on to a single, managed connection creates significant cost savings. The service is flexible, as bandwidth can be quickly upgraded when needed.

- Helps to reduce the cost of private networking while improving the quality of service and support
- Scalability and flexibility unavailable from legacy internet services
- A single, accountable supplier, with robust end-to-end SLA’s that include 24/7 UK-based monitoring and support
We can provide a range of resilient, failover solutions which give you assurance of enhanced availability levels to support business-critical applications and protection against unforeseen network incidents.
Installs are carried out by Cisco-accredited engineers who will configure and connect the managed routers.
MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching)
MPLS is an upgrade on traditional point-to-point networks and is ideal for businesses with multi-site locations. Each location is connected to a “private cloud” and offers internet access straight into the private WAN. Internet policies can be centrally controlled and delivered directly into each location. Organisations can improve responsiveness and access to key business systems hosted within the core network.
The key business drivers for MPLS VPN's are the need for convergence and prioritisation as companies strive for the network efficiencies and competitive edge offered by today's business critical applications. Businesses want to benefit from the reduction in their operating costs as well as lowering the business risk by having an experienced accountable supplier.
We offer tailor-made solutions, running over our secure, resilient datacentres.
