Telstra International launches enhanced suite of Ethernet Services


Global telecommunications provider expands its Ethernet portfolio to offer comprehensive range of flexible, cost-effective international connectivity

Telstra International, a global provider of managed network services, has today expanded its range of Ethernet Wide Area Network (WAN) services to provide customers with a complete range of Ethernet connectivity options across Asia, Europe and the US. The offering, available throughout 12 countries, will enable multinational companies to expand their international reach and establish scalable connections with regional offices around the world.

Telstra International’s Global Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) will provide multinational companies with a fully meshed, secure WAN connection over multiple global sites, while customers looking for a point-to-point or point to multi-point connections can use the Global Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL). Both services operate at Layer 2, making them ideal for customers that prefer to maintain control of their routing environment.

These two new services join Telstra International’s existing Global Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service to form Telstra International’s global Ethernet Services portfolio, which is designed to address a variety of customer needs - whether that is to expand into new markets, install bandwidth-hungry applications or replicate mission critical data on a wide scale.

Gina Nomellini, General Manager, Global Products, Telstra International, said: “The market for Ethernet services is booming because IT managers value the way it simplifies network management and reduces the complexity of IT infrastructure. However, Ethernet has traditionally been limited by its restricted geographical reach. Launching these services on an international scale and utilising the strength of our coverage in the Asia Pacific region allows our customers to enjoy simple-to manage, secure and flexible network connections across 29 points of presence in 12 countries across the globe.”

The new Ethernet WAN products will provide customers with a greater range of secure and scalable bandwidth, as well as the ability to support a range of network configurations. Telstra International’s new Ethernet suite allows customers to select from six classes of service and offers support for Virtual Local Area Network (LAN) tagging, all running across its award-winning global MPLS infrastructure.

Greg Russell, Senior Vice President, Telstra International Asia, said: “The current global economy is aggressively driving the need for companies to create maximum efficiencies. These new services will cater to the increasing need of companies for remote collaboration to help drive up productivity and allow for better asset utilization.”

The new services, available immediately, will be supported by expanded Service Level Agreements, with enhanced service levels for all performance metrics including availability, latency, jitter, throughput, mean time to repair and service delivery.
