The BT Business portfolio offers a number of choices for buyers of point to point or multipoint layer 2 Ethernet services. Whether you are looking for short haul (SHDS) between two sites within 35km radial distance or Ethernet to cover the UK or Globe, Network Union are experts across portfolio. We are positioned to add services to your existing BT Business account whether via BT Corporate or BT Local Business or we will create a brand new capability.
Dedicated leased line fibre services are perhaps the most secure, high performing service option in the range of point to point and multipoint circuits. SHDS offers dedicated fibre between nearby campus locations, typically under 40km radial distance.
As the service is provisioned as dedicated infrastructure rather than using a shared core (MPLS), security levels are high, up to GESG level 2-4. Latency and Jitter are also almost wire speed as the end to end path is direct vs. traversing a core shared network such as the Internet or MPLS.
Where radial distance results in an SDHS circuit not being available, Ethernet (Ethernet over MPLS) VLL services provide a further option with global access.
Latency and Jitter
As distances increase, dedicated fibre is an expensive connectivity model and of course may not be available.
Where higher dedicated private bandwidth is a requirement, BT Optical Connect is sold with up to 32 wavelengths each with 10Gbps bandwidth capacity with various interfaces depending on requirements.
MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) and VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) technologies are not normally considered for private leased line services as they’re typically associated with larger opportunities. With this said, the price of both WAN products is in line with all other Ethernet commercials.
Operating at Layer 2, VPLS is actually full mesh of VLL capability offering businesses the ability to create their own Layer 2 WAN. If your design will scale to meet the requirements of further sites, VPLS will allow you to increase your scale while maintaining layer 2 connectivity - an ideal way to self manage your own layer 3 routing capability.
Layer 3 MPLS is also a viable option depending on the use case for your leased line. If the business requires LAN extension (for example) then clearly a layer 3 solution is not applicable.
