Invitech Carrier Ethernet service is a point-to-point and point-to-multipoint Layer-2 connectivity among endpoints within Invitech footprint. Carrier Ethernet (CE) service utilizes Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVC) spanning through Invitech Carrier Services’ MEF certified network. Each EVC is configured to guarantee the committed amount bandwidth end-to-end. CE service is built on MPLS.
Bandwidth options range from 2 Mbps to 10Gbps.
Ethernet Private Line (EPL) provides seamless data flow between two user interfaces (User Network Interface, UNI) over an EVC. Service encapsulates user traffic in service Ethernet frames thus provides transparent transmission over the EVC.
Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) enables a user site to connect to multiple other locations simultaneously. Each connection is configured via dedicated EVC and presented at the central location via 802.1Q encapsulated interface.
Customer connects to the nearest Invitech Carrier Services PoP (Point of Presence) via local tail utilizing various access technologies with selection criteria of availability, cost, flexibility etc. Committed access link capacity is 100% guaranteed. Typical telecommunications media are fibre and licensed-band point-to-point microwave. Local tail may be redundant to improve service availability.
