Ethernet IEPL

How it works


AFR-IX provides a wide variety of solutions according to the architectural request. Whether one site is to be connected to another, a headquarter is to be connected with several offices or a more complex interconnection requiring pseudo wire emulation is required - we have the solution.

Using a CISCO backbone!


With a strong background in engineering, AFR-IX Telecom´s infrastructure bedrock lays on a CISCO backbone that is maintained and developed by CISCO certified engineers. This in turn helps us to develop complex architectural engineering solutions (see case study) that take the shape of:

 

E-Line:

Connect your two offices by an Ethernet line

 
 
 
 

E-LAN:

Multipoint-to-Multipoint Traffic engineering allowing for complex interconnection engineering.

 
 
 
 

E-Tree:

Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) for maximum security.

 
 
 

This switched EoMPLS solution allows scalability and is therefore suited to organisations requiring flexibility for their IT allocated budget. In addition to the ability to downgrade or upgrade your network, contracting AFR-IX’s switched Ethernet guarantees that your connectivity is run according to best practises and is:

Bringing Africa

Closer to you
