Ideal for the distributed enterprise, our seamless Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network transcends individual technologies to help increase overall company productivity and improve business efficiencies. Customers use their secure networks to run business-critical applications to gain better visibility across their organizations, improve operational efficiency, help build customer loyalty, and adapt more quickly. Our industry-leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs) ensure performance for the largest blended data access footprint in the United States.
Because MPLS is highly scalable and less complex than its predecessors, businesses gain more flexibility, less overhead and improved control over network costs. MPLS makes it easy to reroute traffic priorities on the fly, or add new locations to the network whenever you need.
With EarthLink Business, securely connect business locations using a blend of integrated wireless and wireline access options over a single, privately managed MPLS network.
T1: T1 lines are a proven technology and the backbone of business networks. With an EarthLink Businesss MPLS T1 network, businesses gain dependable bandwidth with a 4-hour mean time to repair (MTTR). Private T1's provide symmetrical 1.5 Mbps bandwidth which can be allocated to converge VoIP, video and other data.
DSL: Our DSL-based platform allows custom prioritization of network applications with up to six Classes of Service (CoS). We are the first provider to bring together CoS traffic management with high-speed, low-cost DSL access, which puts the performance gain of MPLS networks within reach of more businesses. MPLS over DSL enables businesses to upgrade to the benefits of an MPLS network without the higher cost of T1 lines at all locations.
Ethernet: MPLS over Ethernet works as a reliable backbone for large networks with substantial traffic demands. This highly scalable service is well suited to help businesses relieve network congestion brought on by VoIP traffic, video uploads and downloads, file transfers, and other network demands. Ethernet is an economical alternative to traditional high capacity services such as OC3 and DS3 on a per Mbps basis and is also a cost-effective last-mile service.
Wireless: Wireless Data is ideal for businesses with recurrent moves or geographically dispersed locations where DSL is not available and T1 service is prohibitively expensive. Wireless Data also supports seasonality in industries like retail, construction, insurance and tax services. For businesses that manage through frequent and/or temporary store openings, moves or kiosk relocations, a new location can be turned up and online in less than 48 hours. Additionally, Wireless Data can be utilized as an interim solution when businesses encounter facility issues or long lead times with DSL or T1 installations.
IPsec: MPLS IPsec is a set of protocols enabling remote locations to have secure access to the core MPLS network over the Internet. IPsec allows businesses to procure Internet access from a local provider (typically in outlying areas where it is more economically feasible) and then connect to the corporate MPLS network. IPsec supports the 3DES encryption algorithm (168-bit), which is the finance industry standard for network layer encryption.Portal
Information management is perhaps the most important part of an effective network management system. The EarthLink Business Managed Services Suite performs like your own virtual IT staff, handling a variety of tasks such as monitoring router equipment, providing utilization statistics, detecting network outages, and automating trouble response and resolution.
The Managed Services Suite is available through myLink, the EarthLink Business online portal. The myLink portal features order status information, repair and trouble ticketing, reporting, and the ability to closely monitor your network performance, including:
When you need a dedicated, reliable high-speed connection to transmit large amounts of secure and/or time-sensitive information our Private Line service offers security and peace of mind. Private Line service establishes a high-speed dedicated connection that allows the secure transmission of information between two locations. Security is controlled because the established connection bypasses the public switched telephone network.
Data Center Connect provides EarthLink Business MPLS customers with the ability to interconnect one or more of their locations to EarthLink Business Data Centers in order to utilize EarthLink Business IT Services.
Every EarthLink Business MPLS customer receives 10 Mbps of bandwidth into the data center. Additional bandwidth is available based on customer's needs.
