Telstra International has extended the global reach of its Ethernet Private Line (EPL) offering with the launch of a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ (OSS) Ethernet service option and the release of its Ethernet half circuits.
The fully comprehensive OSS service option allows Telstra customers to benefit from a single point of contact for ordering, delivery, billing and support for Ethernet Private Line services, with end-to- end support and diagnostics provided by Telstra’s intelligent Network Interface Devices (NIDs). Alternatively, Telstra’s Ethernet half circuits allow customers to buy a half circuit on the Telstra network and another on a partner network, to build a bespoke dedicated bandwidth Ethernet solution themselves.
Telstra is seeing increasing demand from customers who want to connect their data centers and benefit from the scalability and privacy of EPL services. By offering a comprehensive OSS Ethernet service combined with bilateral half circuits, Telstra is now able to leverage its global network of Ethernet provider partners in countries where it does not currently hold a license to operate, extending the reach of Telstra’s Ethernet service into these locations to meet local demand.
Part of a comprehensive portfolio of next-generation Ethernet services, Telstra’s global EPL service is both simple and cost efficient to deploy. The ability to buy inexpensive Ethernet equipment for a Wide Area Network (WAN) or to reuse existing Ethernet equipment, coupled with cost-effective Ethernet local access options, reduces both operational and capital expenditure, whilst maintaining business flexibility.
