SINGAPORE -- Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) today announced the availability of a new international Ethernet service for its global corporate customers.
Called ConnectPlus Ethernet-VPN, this cost effective and scalable solution offers customers any-to-any connectivity between two or more countries. It also comes with the assurance of Class of Service (CoS) and Service Level Guarantee (SLG).
This new service, which runs on SingTel's state-of-the-art MPLS* network, is ideal for customers who are currently using international data wide-area networks (WANs) but wish to retain control over their network routing. It is also suitable for those -- especially from the banking and financial sectors - - who run applications with non-Internet Protocol (IP) traffic because such applications are difficult to be carried over an IP-VPN.
With the ubiquitous Ethernet interface, which typically costs a fraction of the price of other network interfaces, Ethernet-VPN customers can also expect cost savings.
Mr Bill Chang, SingTel's Executive Vice President for Business, said: "Customers have been looking forward to a service that helps to inject simplicity back into their networks. We can fulfill this demand with our new service which can deliver improved efficiency and help grow their business.
"Ethernet-VPN is the next-generation technology and is considered to be the next wave after IP. SingTel's market leadership position is further enhanced with the introduction of this next-generation network service to our customers. Building on our strong capabilities in the VPN market, our customers are assured of always being at the forefront of technology."
"We will continue to introduce new services that allow our customers to enjoy cost effective and superior network and application performance," added Mr Chang.
