Provide remote access
Ethernet Lite can be used to help build your IP WAN or virtual private network (VPN), providing your staff with remote access to central office sites. With the new Ethernet over First Mile (EFM) capability, we can deliver Ethernet Lite (BDSL) services at increased bandwidths over greater distances than before. The service can be delivered in a number of ways, including as a point-to-point service to connect two sites, or in conjunction with Ethernet ATM, Telstra’s frame relay service, Telstra IP WAN or Internet Direct as part of a wide area network (WAN).
Dedicated and reliable data access
Unlike typical internet-grade DSL products where customers share a connection-based platform, Ethernet Lite delivers dedicated End User Access and Individual Service for each of your end-users. The Target Service Availability for Ethernet Lite (BDSL) has been increased from 99.6% to 99.8%.
Let us manage your network
We use established processes and competencies to support all your business data transfer, internet and connectivity needs. We can install and manage a network terminating unit (NTU) for each Ethernet Lite service. This NTU supports a 10/100 Ethernet port and provides simple and cost effective connectivity into a corporate WAN.
Flexible configurations and speeds
Ethernet Lite can be delivered in a number of ways, including:
- As a ‘point-to-point’ service to connect two sites
- In conjunction with Ethernet ATM
- In conjunction with a Frame Relay service
- In conjunction with IP WAN
- In conjunction with Internet Direct as part of a wide area network (WAN).
Depending on the access speed, a number of different throughput levels - Ethernet virtual circuits (EVC’s) with varying committed information rates (CIR) - are also available.
