12 Services offered by Qualitynet over MPLS Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP-VPN) Qualitynet's IP-VPN is engineered to support a range of powerful managed application services that can radically improve your business processes and overall operational efficiency. Virtual Leased Line (VLL) A point-to-point virtual private network connection, connecting two customer edge devices transparently at two different locations, as if they had a traditional leased line in between. Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) An Ethernet based multipoint-to-multipoint communication, providing connectivity to multiple customer sites in a manner that is transparent to the customer edge devices. Virtual Private Routing Network (VPRN) Providing a way to communicate between locations without having to lease traditional circuits, VPRN uses labeled tunnels to create a private WAN (Wide Area Network), for sharing confidential information over an absolute secure path. It enforces privacy through traffic segregation and the isolation of IP routing information per VPRN instance.
13 INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE LEASED CIRCUITS (IPLC) IPLC connects major national and international organizations with a direct link to their global offices for end-to-end connectivity. With IPLCs, organizations that need to constantly exchange large volume of data between point to point (one-to-one applications) or multi-point (one-to-many application) locations can maximize their data throughput by having exclusive and dedicated connectivity between their points of presence round the clock, day in and day out. Charged at a fixed monthly rental that is irrespective of usage, the circuit becomes more economical as it is used more. A wide variety of upgradable operating speeds are offered to suit customer's needs. Qualitynet s IPLC Service offers: 24-hour access through permanent dedicated links. Fixed monthly rental irrespective of usage, mean cost savings over increased usage.
