  • EVPLAN - Connects all points on a common network

  • Benefits
  • How It Works
  • Technical Comparison

• Cost efficiency– Lower cost-per-Mbps than legacy frame or ATM

• Data transfer reliability – Low latency and low packet loss ensure data integrity

• Better performance – Class of Service (CoS) and Quality of Service (QoS) agreements allow you to prioritize the level of service metrics for critical applications

• The ability to streamline your IT – Converge both voice and data onto a single network

• Range of bandwidth options – Symmetrical speeds from 3 Mbps to 1 Gpbs to meet your needs

Two Different E-LAN solutions

Ethernet Private Local Area Network (EPLAN)

EPLAN provides all of your locations with true any-to-any connectivity. This ensures fault-tolerant business continuity and enables data and communications to flow directly to their destination.

 

Ethernet Virtual Private Local Area Network (EVPLAN)

An EVPLAN connects all points on a common network, but also allows the enterprise to manage which locations are allowed to communicate directly with each other. VLAN IDs are employed to implement this functionality, allowing selective sharing of information.
