Colt is an award-winning Ethernet service provider that offers a simple and cost-effective way to build an ‘extended LAN’ and is well suited for multi-site Enterprises with a distributed organisational structure. The Ethernet VPN service is a Layer 2 E-LAN service providing customers wide area connectivity in an any-to-any logical topology.
Coverage & options
The fast business ethernet service is available in the Metro, Nationally and Internationally and offers access speeds from 2Mbps through to 1Gbps and supports the full range of standard Ethernet interfaces.
Ethernet VPN is an alternative to Ethernet Hub and Spoke or IP-VPN where the ease of management and bandwidth flexibility will appeal to customers looking to either manage the IP layer in-house using existing expertise or to add their own layer 3 service to the Colt layer 2 product.
Fully managed service
Colt acts a single point of responsibility and can ensure necessary levels of separation by using our own network throughout. This allows your own IT professionals time to focus on the application layer services that help drive your business. Colt design, implement, manage and maintain the service, thus ensuring that you don’t need to invest your own resources in specialist skills or hardware.
Our business Ethernet VPN service meets the most stringent technical criteria and has been certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) to the Carrier Ethernet 2.0 standard.
