Lumen Ethernet Private Line

Powerful point-to-multipoint connectivity

E-Line EPL


  • Single Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) delivers bandwidth between two User Network Interfaces (UNIs)
  • Dedicated capacity for high-priority traffic
  • Fully transparent to pass a wider variety of traffic types
  • Single Class of Service (CoS).

E-Line (EVPL)

  • Point-to-point
  • Point-to-multipoint (ideal for supporting remote sites via centralized data centers)
  • Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) direct traffic across multiple EVCs
  • Dedicated capacity for high priority traffic
  • Whole EVC gets same prioritisation for simplicity
  • Fully transparent to pass a wider variety of traffic types
