E-LAN increases the flexibility for organisations to use Ethernet “any to any” connectivity between sites, says the company
Communications offerings and services provider BT has launched new E-LAN services and also expanded its Ethernet Connect services to 28 countries.
The new E-LAN service is used to connect sites and applications that have complex and rapidly changing network traffic patterns and the new service E-LAN increases the flexibility for organisations to use Ethernet "any to any" connectivity between sites.
BT said it offers the new E-LAN service to those 28 countries where the Ethernet Connect services are planned to be deployed.
Ethernet Connect is an adaptive high performance Ethernet VPN (virtual private network) service, designed for large organisations that require exclusive control over their IP architecture and the freedom to evolve their infrastructure and innovate in their own way.
Ethernet Connect combines E-Line and E-LAN services to improve an organisations ability to retain control of the IP architecture and innovate.
BT Global Services Global Portfolio vice-president Neil Sutton said BT Connect the BT’s portfolio of network services, is now an even richer set of services that meet the different needs of BT’s global customers, covering IP, Ethernet, Internet and application performance management.
"Our customers are looking for choice and flexibility to meet evolving needs. For those of our customers requiring specific services for specific needs or for those that require exclusive control of their IP architecture, Ethernet Connect is now a great global service," said Sutton.
"By extending the availability of that service to 28 countries and adding capabilities such as E-LAN, we are now offering a highly compelling solution in the market."
