MPLS Ethernet Backhaul
Our MPLS Ethernet Backhaul service is ideally suited to deploying a point-to-point backbone connection between two datacentres. These datacentres could be in the same city or located thousands of miles apart, in two different countries.
This service is generally deployed as an 'MPLS Psuedowire', with an easy-to-deal-with layer2 Ethernet interface presentation. The service has full 'q-in-q' VLAN tagging support and can be visualised simply as one long Ethernet cable end to end. Route protection over our multiple backbone routes is included 'as standard', resulting in a highly reliable service and generous SLA terms.
As well as backbone connections, this service is also often used by network operators who wish to directly connect to a regional Internet Exchange (IX) located in a country where they have no existing infrastructure. We are an approved 'LINX From Anywhere' carrier, but can also provide layer2 backhaul to AMSIX, DE-CIX, PANAP and NLIX (and many others)
Pricing depends on a number of factors such as circuit capacity required and endpoint locations, so please don't hesitate to contact us for a pricing.
