E-LAN Overview

What is E-LAN?

123NET’s Ethernet LAN (E-LAN) enables any-to-any connectivity for businesses that need to connect all their locations on a single network. E-LAN brings together cost-effectiveness, speed, simplicity and flexibility in a broadly customizable Ethernet solution. E-LAN provides a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) that extends your Local Area Network (LAN) allowing your company’s business-critical applications and data to travel seamlessly across the entire network. E-LAN can move large amounts of information between sites, quickly and securely. 

Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN) Service

A Port-based Service of E-LAN Service Type that enables Subscribers with multiple sites to interconnect them so that all sites appear to be on the same Local Area Network (LAN) and have the same performance and access to resources such as servers and storage. An EP-LAN service is a highly transparent service that connects multiple UNIs. 

Ethernet Virtual Private LAN (EVP-LAN)

A VLAN-based Service of E-LAN Service Type. Some Subscribers desire a service of E-LAN Service Type to connect their UNIs in a network, while at the same time accessing other services from one or more of those UNIs. An example of such a UNI is a Subscriber site that wants to access a public or private IP service from a UNI that is also used for a service of E-LAN Service Type among the Subscriber’s several locations. Ethernet Virtual Private LAN (EVP-LAN) service is specified in this subsection to address this need. 



E-LAN Benefits


All data travels within the secure domain of a Layer 2 dedicated, high-capacity, point-to-point connection at native Ethernet speeds.
