Virtual Private LAN Service
As companies race to the cloud, the demand for scalable and latency-sensitive infrastructures has risen dramatically. The results of rapidly changing end-user requirements coupled with the advancement of the overall IT industry have caused many enterprises to rethink their WAN infrastructure. VPLS offers total control of IP routing so IT teams are enabled to respond to varying levels of demand and change quickly.
VPLS is a class of VPN that connects disparate sites in a centralized domain over a managed IP/MPLS network. This allows Local Area Networks to communicate and appear as a single Ethernet LAN. A VPLS can carry non-IP traffic without conversion or encapsulation, and maintenance can fall under the service provider or the in-house team.
Key Benefits of VPLS
Improved speed and security
Adaptable to legacy protocols and IP
