Ethernet reinvented is the way forward
For many years Frame-Relay ruled for creating efficient private Wide Area Networks, but high costs meant only the big boys could play.
In 2001 MPLS took over, but the increasing demand for bandwidth put a spanner in the works. You can get round it by bonding 2Mb and 45Mb circuits; but the solution is neither scalable nor cost effective.
And still the demand for sophisticated features, services and bandwidth grows...
The answer? Wait for it…. Ethernet WAN from CloudXL.
Ethernet was big in the 80s as a Local Area Network and, just like Take That, it’s staging a comeback. And this time, it’s grown up; it’s evolved from a LAN to a WAN, using copper wire and fibre to run at speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
With Ethernet, CloudXL can make your WAN bigger, better and faster, providing a higher capacity at lower cost per bit. We can also segregate links into manageable Virtual LANs (VLAN), to ensure connectivity and protect high priority traffic.
We see it as a way to make everyone happy; FDs love the reduced costs, IT Managers understand the architecture and revel in increased capabilities, and users get the higher bandwidth and faster application speeds they long for. Ethernet is the true 80s comeback kid (sorry Gary).
CloudXL excel at:
- Providing Ethernet WAN services.
- Protecting high priority traffic with the use of Virtual LANs.
- Reducing costs while increasing capabilities.
- Speeding up productivity with applications running faster over a higher bandwidth.
