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.
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).
• Expand your network, using DataCentre Connect, to new sites quickly and cost effectively
• Temporary connectivity between sites
• Reduce leased line costs
• Save on bandwidth costs; compared to using Internet traffic
• Connect to customers in remote locations
• Connect to private peering partners in remote locations
Using our MPLS network and data centre interconnects, we offer the following:
Layer 2 protocol and VLAN transparent – Run your own VLAN tags as on your own network with no intervention from us.
DataCentre Connect port speeds available: 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 10Gbps.
All port speeds support jumbo frames of up to 9000 bytes.
Point-2-multipoint VPLS options available.
DataCentre Connect is provided on annual contracts by default, with monthly contracts available.
Guaranteed throughput by virtue of RSVP based bandwidth reservation.
