VPLS UK LAYER 2 NETWORK TECHNOLOGY. ITS ADVANTAGE OVER ALTERNATIVE NETWORK TECHNOLOGIES IS THAT IT ALLOWS GEOGRAPHICALLY-DIVERSE LOCATIONS TO CONNECT TOGETHER AS IF ON THE SAME LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN).
UK Multipoint Connectivity with VPLS
VPLS is a virtual private network technology that allows any-to-any, otherwise known as multi-point connectivity. In a VPLS UK Layer 2 network, 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 the LANs. This creates a single bridged LAN. Receiving the benefits from lower latency and jitter.
By providing an ethernet network, you the customer are given a greater level of manageability. Network changes do not require the assistance of the carrier. Some carriers also provide robust online management tools that allow you to view every single hop of your VPLS network, right down to the local loop. This provides greater ease in troubleshooting network problems or failures.
Sequential Networks gives you UK multipoint connectivity via our VPLS UK Layer 2 network.
