Integra Telecom’s (News - Alert) E-LAN Carrier Ethernet services can deliver multipoint-to-multipoint Layer 2 virtual private networks, or VPN for multilocation customers. The company specializes in fiber-based, carrier-grade networking, communications and technology solutions.

Joe Harding, senior vice president of marketing at Integra, said in a statement, “Integra’s E-LAN services offer medium-sized and enterprise customers a true extension of their corporate LAN across a wide area or metro network.”

This new services launch will augment Integra’s Carrier Ethernet portfolio besides letting, Integra E-LAN services customers to scale their corporate or campus networks that cover multiple locations. They will also benefit from complete control over Quality of Service (QoS).

Also, the new Integra E-LAN Carrier Ethernet services encompass E-Line services for point-to-point connections across a Wide Area Network (WAN). E-LAN provides a complete Layer 2 Mesh connectivity for customers at multiple locations delivering bandwidths of up to 10 gigabits-per-second. The services are delivered via Integra’s fiber and Ethernet over Copper (EoC) network infrastructure, said officials.

“Businesses looking to bring together all of their locations via a secure, reliable network will find that our E-LAN services offer exceptional performance with the flexibility to adapt to their private networking requirements and meet their budget,” Harding added.

The new solution ensures a transparent network for Layer 3 routing using which customers can have control over Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) partitioning featuring optimum security like in a private network.

This makes the E-LAN services suitable for healthcare, financial services and retail industries besides in education and government agencies. The services help in the networking of data-intensive application services delivering critical IT functions and proprietary software platforms.

Customers will be able to leverage the monitoring capabilities to measure bandwidth usage and other key indicators in real-time. They can also manage QoS and network traffic so voice, streaming video, file sharing or disaster recovery services can be prioritized depending on business and location.

Ethernet customers can monitor and view graphical representations of their Ethernet network on a Web-based portal, which functions like a network operations center, added officials.

Recently, Integra demonstrated its commitment to government and education services (GES) by providing nearly 300 schools and libraries with Internet and telecom services. Through E-Rate, Integra offers discounted end-to-end connectivity for voice and data networks to K-12 schools, education districts and libraries throughout its footprint.
