Layer2 Metro Ethernet Fiber WAN Solutions
Ethernet is the de facto standard in corporate LANs; and now the simplicity of Ethernet can be the backbone of your WAN. Whether you want to bridge your office to one of our data centers or connect branch offices, manufacturing facilities or suppliers, you can take advantage of one of our Ethernet WAN services. At this layer, data packets are encoded and decoded into bits. It furnishes transmission protocol knowledge and management and handles errors in the physical layer, flow control and frame synchronization. The data link layer is divided into two sublayers: The Media Access Control (MAC) layer and the Logical Link Control (LLC) layer. The MAC sublayer controls how a computer on the network gains access to the data and permission to transmit it. The LLC layer controls frame synchronization, flow control and error checking.
Virtual Private LAN Service
VPLS is a way to provide Ethernet based multipoint to multipoint communication over IP/MPLS networks. It allows geographically dispersed sites to share an Ethernet broadcast domain by connecting sites through pseudo-wires.
VPLS is a virtual private network (VPN) technology. In contrast to L2TPv3, which allows only point-to-point layer 2 tunnels, VPLS allows any-to-any (multipoint) connectivity.
In a VPLS, the local area network (LAN) at each site is extended to the edge of the provider network. The provider network then emulates a switch or bridge to connect all of the customer LANs to create a single bridged LAN.
Use virtual private LAN service (VPLS) over a carrier Ethernet network to provide a WAN that is configured like a LAN or campus area network (CAN). Pros: simple, support any-to-any connectivity with CoS/QoS; high performance; lowest total cost of ownership.
