Recently, Integra Telecom (News - Alert) expanded its carrier Ethernet services portfolio with the addition of its E-LAN services. Designed for a wide range of industries such as healthcare, financial services, retail, education and government, the service enables networking data-intensive application services, critical IT functions and proprietary software platforms across a variety of locations.
Customers can also measure bandwidth usage and other key indicators in real-time, allowing for the comprehensive management of QoS and network traffic so that business critical applications such as voice, streaming video, file sharing or disaster recovery services can be prioritized to the needs of the business or location.
Moreover, the service allows customers to scale their corporate or campus networks across multiple locations easily, with full control over quality of service (QoS). As a result, businesses can bring together all of their locations via a secure, reliable network.
Integra's E-LAN service significantly enhances the company's carrier Ethernet offerings, which include E-Line services for point-to-point connections across a Wide Area Network (WAN). The service utilizes the company’s vast and growing fiber and Ethernet over Copper (EoC) network infrastructure.
E-LAN services also offers the flexibility needed to adapt to private networking requirements and meet individual budgets, according to company officials. It provides customers with complete Layer 2 Mesh connectivity with bandwidth of up to 10 gigabits per second.
"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," said Joe Harding, senior vice president of Marketing at Integra, in a statement.
Additionally, the new offering provides a transparent network for Layer 3 routing so customers can retain control of any virtual local area network (VLAN) partitioning with the security of a private network. And with its performance monitoring features, customers can monitor, optimize and view graphical representations of their Ethernet network via a Web-based portal, providing a user experience similar to a network operations center.
