Enabling cost-effective connectivity across the world

Tokyo, Japan 4th June 2020 – Colt Technology Services has today announced that its award-winning Ethernet VPN service is now offering any-to-any connectivity globally.

Colt’s Ethernet VPN is a best in class layer 2 service that allows organisations to create advanced multipoint, ‘any to any’, global networks that interconnect business locations in a flexible and scalable manner. Additionally, its bandwidth has been extended up to 40Gbps allowing creation of very high bandwidth Enterprise networks. Also, multi-Class of Service (CoS) options that cater for the demands of diverse business applications are available.

As organisations embark on their digital transformation journey and workloads move to the cloud, the volume of data being transmitted is increasing exponentially. Moreover, the development of 5G and IoT technology is further increasing the demand for reliable, high bandwidth connectivity. Data sensitive organisations who need to move large volumes of data, such as carrier providers and Over the Top (OTT) media service providers, will benefit from Colt’s Ethernet VPN service known for high bandwidth (up to 10Gbps), low latency and easy set up any-to-any connectivity, which is supported by the Colt IQ Network- a 100Gbps optimised intelligent network, connecting more than 900 data centres across the world with over 29,000 on net buildings and growing.

Colt’s Ethernet VPN service enables customers with distributed organisational structures to connect each location in an any-to-any logical topology. Major advantages of utilising Ethernet VPN for any additional global locations is its efficiency in cost and time. Once customers have an VPN network in place, additional locations can be added with a rapid ten business day delivery window. (*1)
