BT Connect E-LAN launched in SA

BT announced today the expansion of its Ethernet Connect services to 28 countries, and the launch of international E-LAN services.

Ethernet Connect is BT’s Ethernet VPN (virtual private network) service, designed for large organisations that require exclusive control over their IP architecture.

Ethernet Connect is available in six new countries, bringing the total to 28 countries – with additional countries covered through long lines.

Simultaneously, BT is now offering to its customers, across those same 28 countries, a new E-LAN service.

“E-LAN increases flexibility for organisations with ambitions to use Ethernet “any to any” connectivity between sites. It is used typically to connect sites and applications that have complex and rapidly changing network traffic patterns,” BT said.

According to Joel Stradling, principal analyst at Current Analysis, “BT can offer its clients a greater choice of data WAN end-to-end services. Customers increasingly need flexible bandwidth and high performance, and Ethernet fits the bill. BT can offer hybrid layer 2 Ethernet VPN plus IP/MPLS VPN service to help its enterprise clients achieve the best-fit solutions.”
