International Ethernet Private Line
Summit Communications’ IEPL service is ideal for companies that require either dedicated bandwidth or greater data privacy, or indeed both. The service operates at the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model layer 2 and, as a result, it gives companies the ability to control their network routing and manage their own security. IEPL is delivered over SCL’s extensive optical fiber cable assets using Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) technology and can be set up in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations, with a variety of protection/ restoration options. Also intelligent network MEF-compliant Network Interface Devices (NIDs) are installed on your sites as standard enabling end-to-end support, diagnostics and performance reporting.
With IEPL, customers have confidence that the bandwidth they need is reserved specifically for their own use. Over time, as their needs change, it is easy for them to expand their capacity, in small and affordable increments, and build their total capacity to as much as 10 Gbps. The scalability offered by this service enables growing organizations to expand their network gradually and only pay for the capacity they need. What is more, bandwidth increases can be achieved through simple ‘soft upgrades’ with minimal service disruption.
