What is Ethernet Private Line?

Ethernet Private Line (EPL) is a dedicated networking service that provides businesses with secure and high-speed connections between two locations. It operates on the Ethernet protocol, ensuring fast and symmetrical data transfer rates. EPL is commonly used when businesses need a private and reliable link between their sites, such as offices, data centers, or remote facilities. It offers guaranteed bandwidth and low-latency, and often comes with service level agreements (SLAs) to ensure performance and uptime. EPL is an excellent choice for organisations that prioritise data privacy and require consistent, predictable network performance for critical operations.
