Ethernet Services for Multisite Connectivity

This paper discusses two types of Ethernet multisite connectivity; effective solutions with different capabilities: hub-and-spoke topology using Ethernet Virtual Private Lines (EVPL) and any-to-any Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN). Both offer secure, high-performance multisite connectivity with IP transparency. EVPL offers centralized traffic routing, flexible and granular management and QoS. EP-LAN offers simple site creation, with routers that autolearn connectivity.
