Smart Wires: VPLS

The Smarter Network Technology

Exponential-e is the UK’s pioneer of corporate Networks delivered using
Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) technology.

Creating a Virtual Cloud for Any-to-any Connectivity

VPLS extends the plug-and-play functionality in the LAN across the Wide Area Network (WAN) by facilitating the creation of a completely private Layer 2 virtual Cloud to which customers can connect all of their offices in order to gain any-to-any connectivity. All services appear to be on the same LAN, regardless of location.

True Convergence Over One Connection

VPLS enables multiple services over a single access circuit, thus bringing true convergence of triple play onto the WAN and most importantly for security, keeping these services separate from each other. The core Network serves as the platform for converging services.

Exponential-e customers use the capabilities of VPLS as a building block to converge their services on our Service Creation Platform. They are then able to access services on our Network with simplicity, scalability and security.

The result: optimal quality of service.

Benefits of a VPLS-based Network

VPLS gives us a service-oriented architecture from which our customers can plug and play with a range of services: data, voice, security and cloud. We are delivering simplicity and operational efficiencies for IT heads, allowing them to focus on maximising their return on investment.


MPLS vs VPLS

01
A true end-to-end SLA, including the access circuit to your site.
02
Low latency between sites (no router hops) and reduced complexity.
03
Easier virtualisation and replication, as Layer 2 Connection requires no routing.
04
Converge voice and data Networks on multiple VPLS Connections.
05
Reduced administration, for easier network planning and cost control.
06
Customers are free to control their own IP addressing schema and routing.
07
EDD provides full visibility of the circuit and 24/7 monitoring.
08
Fully supported services, with end-to-end QoS, intelligent distribution of bandwidth and six classes of service.

End-to-end QoS

VPLS technology combined with Ethernet Demarcation Devices (EDDs)

The EDDs allow us to hand off different services as separate virtual circuits across one physical circuit, enabling us to guarantee end-to-end quality of service on all of our circuits. As a result, any faults that occur can be quickly located and fixed, limiting disruption to daily activities.
