Managed Ethernet Services

What is E-Line?

Ethernet Line (E-Line) is a platform-agnostic, layer 2 point-to-point or point-to-multipoint service that can traverse between any two or more customer sites located in the Midwest. GPC E-Line service is protected within the core and can be ordered as Ethernet Private Line or Ethernet Virtual Private Line.

Ethernet Private Line (EPL)

This is a point-to-point port-based service that is intended to be highly transparent in the sense that service frames sent are delivered with as few modifications as possible. Traffic within these frames is managed by the customer.

What is E-Lan?

Ethernet Local Area Network (E-LAN) is a platform-agnostic, layer 2 multipoint-to-multipoint service that connects a number of customer locations via two or more User Network Interfaces (UNIs) providing full mesh connectivity for customer sites located in the Midwest. Each UNI can communicate with any other UNI that is connected to managed Ethernet services. GPC supports EP-LAN and EVP-LAN configurations.
