Users can pay a monthly recurring charge per port and can connect multiple locations
360networks, a provider of Private Line Transport, Ethernet, IP, VoIP and Local Access services, has launched Layer 2 Ethernet (L2E) service.
According to the company L2E is a Carrier Ethernet service providing scalable Layer 2 connectivity between major carrier hotels, data centers, Internet Exchanges, and Ethernet Exchanges throughout the region.
360networks developed L2E for Internet Service providers (ISPs), cloud infrastructure and storage providers, co-location providers, content providers, content distribution networks, VoIP service providers, wireless carriers, CLECs, cable MSOs, and others needing access to a high performance, purpose-built Layer 2 network.
As a port-based service, customers will have to pay a monthly recurring charge per port and can connect multiple locations in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configuration, the company said.
360networks senior vice president Rick Coma said they designed the L2E service to support growth by enabling users to quickly and cost effectively scale bandwidth and access major data distribution points and other carrier neutral meet me points.
"L2E eliminates the complexity of building and managing a private network by providing a fully managed diverse protected transport solution," Coma said.
