VPLS

One Network Across Your Business

GTT’s Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) provides any-to-any connectivity, extending your network across multiple locations, anywhere in the world. VPLS solutions combine the simplicity of Ethernet with the resiliency of our underlying MPLS network, and are ideal for multinational organizations that require complete control over their routing environment.

Simple Service, Maximum Control

VPLS is easy to manage, extending the simplicity of the Ethernet LAN across the WAN. GTT’s VPLS network enables you to maintain full routing control of traffic, with no sharing of your routing table or IP addressing. The service allows for transmission of IP traffic, as well as non-IP traffic, with no encapsulation or conversion required.

High-Quality Service Delivery

Our VPLS service employs P-bit prioritization for Class of Service (CoS) at no additional cost, allowing you to segment traffic into four classes. This ensures that latency-sensitive applications are given the highest priority, providing an optimal end-user experience.

Flexible Bandwidth Options

GTT provides flexible bandwidth options, including flat-rate billing as well as burstable ports to meet data spikes. Unlike many VPLS providers, we also offer an aggregate committed data rate (ACDR) plan that allows for sharing of bandwidth across ports, so you can avoid overpaying for idle capacity.
