LS Networks Ethernet Operational Benefits
Reliable and Secure Performance
Our Ethernet services are provisioned over our own fiber backbone and MPLS core network, and are fully supported by SLAs, guaranteeing the highest standards of reliability.
Better Uptime For Business Applications
Quality of Service (QoS) technology prioritizes Metro and WAN traffic into queues, maximizing network efficiency during times of network congestion.
Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Compliance
Scalable and reliable business-class Ethernet performs to rigid service level specifications and MEF industry standards.
E-Line Service Type
(Point-to-Point EVC) replaces your traditional private line service and provides flexible, dedicated bandwidth at a lower cost between two points, supporting a single Ethernet connection.
E-LAN Service Type
(Multipoint to Multipoint EVC) supports multiple Ethernet connections and aggregated hub locations, giving you true flexibility and routing options. Featuring easy and cost-effective upgrades, this service allows you to easily configure your network and bandwidth to meet the day- to-day needs of your business. With LS Networks, expanding your WAN can happen in hours, not weeks.
E-Tree Service Type
(Rooted Multipoint EVC) provides site-to-site security directing remote traffic (leaf sites) to one or more select sites (root sites) for processing. This helps guarantee isolation between leaf sites preventing data from being directly shared without passing through a root site that could process traffic through a firewall. In the rural Northwest, this might mean small hospitals can share x-rays with large hospitals and their physicians seamlessly, quickly and securely. It might mean a small ISP can place an internet gateway router at a root site and distribute internet access to their customers. Regardless of your challenge, our network experts are prepared to engineer a configuration that yields performance and value.
