Arelion Sets Standard with 40Gbps Ethernet Across Its Network

Arelion (formerly Telia Carrier), announced a new standard of Ethernet connectivity for enterprise customers, with the availability of 40Gbps EVPL (Ethernet Virtual Private Line) bandwidth across its AS1299 global fiber backbone network. Building on recent Arelion network investments, high bandwidth EVPL gives customers the flexibility and reliability of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) with the simplicity and security of private Ethernet network connections.

The announcement means that 20, 30, and 40Gbps Layer 2 point-to-point Ethernet EVPL services can be ordered and delivered on Arelion’s network within weeks, subject to surveys. With Arelion’s network “build for capacity” approach and 100GE interfaces available customers can combine services, including IP transit, cloud connect, dedicated internet access and internet exchange (IX) connect, on a single port with Arelion’s multiple services on one port (MSOP) technology making management simpler and more cost-effective.

The 40Gbps services form part of Arelion’s long-term network investment goals to ensure customers have access to the network services and bandwidth needed to meet the growing demands of their digital transformation strategies and the needs of teams and end users worldwide. To this end, the 40Gbps services are terminated on 100GE network interfaces to remove the potential for bottlenecks and support future bandwidth needs. All Ethernet services from Arelion are MEF 3.0 certified.
