DataCentre Connect

Expand your network quickly and cost effectively

A Metro Ethernet service available in all hSo’s on-net sites, by virtue of our running a next-generation MPLS network. All sites feature redundant connectivity over leased dark fibre.

What is DataCentre Connect?

DataCentre Connect, our Layer 2 Ethernet service, gives you a transparent Ethernet circuit between a pair of locations, emulating a direct Ethernet cable between your devices on either end. The connections will pass all Layer 2 protocols such as Cisco Discovery (CDP) and Spanning Tree (STP) as well as your VLAN tags (including your own Q-in-Q or double tagged frames).

•    Temporary connectivity between sites 
•    Reduce leased line costs
•    Save on bandwidth costs; compared to using Internet traffic
