As a result, our wide area network solutions will match your needs better than any other.
What is VPLS and how does it work?
Unlike MPLS, VPLS is not a form of communication. VPLS is a service that uses MPLS and Virtual Private Networking (VPN) to securely and seamlessly connect multiple LANs over the Internet, making them appear as if they were all on the same LAN. This allows internal routing protocols to be utilised (OSPF, EIGRP, IS-IS, etc.).
VPLS works by creating a virtualised Ethernet switch at the provider’s edge to link remote sites. VPLS happens at Layer-2, as the carrier we would build out the network, but you as the customer can do your own routing if you so wish. This approach is ideal for companies that have multiple data centre footprints and office or store locations that require low-latency, low-jitter connections between sites.
