Ethernet Services

BringCom’s Ethernet Services, known as Carrier Ethernet Services, provide high performance connectivity solutions for your business applications domestically or internationally. Ethernet is a trusted standards-based technology that is scalable up to 100 Gbps with committed bandwidth guarantees and burstable ports to meet sudden increases in data requirements. BringCom is a member of MEF, the defining body for Carrier Ethernet. The company has completed E-Access MEF Certification in Uganda and is currently completing E-Access and E-Line MEF certification is East Africa.

Business Services: an end-to-end service

In a Carrier Ethernet network, data is transported across Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multipoint and Multipoint-to-Multipont Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs). These two configurations are simple and reliable to implement and manage. Each EVC transports data in the form of Carrier Ethernet Service Frames from User Network Interface (UNI) to UNI. The UNI is defined as the physical demarcation point between the responsibility of BringCom, your Service Provider and your responsibility, the customer.

  • Our Point-to-Point EVC provides dedicated, secure connectivity between two sites. This service is best for interconnecting datacenters, datacenter backup and disaster recovery with the ability to seamlessly support large data transfers between locations with low-latency and high-throughput.
  • Our Point-to-Multipoint EVC connects multiple sites together, allowing you to extend your Local Area Network (LAN) to branch offices and partners around the globe. Multipoint Ethernet is implemented via a Hub-and-Spoke site-to-site Wide Area Network (WAN) topology, providing multiple virtual LANs (VLANs) over a single UNI or by supplying multiple VLANs between two points. One physical site act as a Hub (example, main office), while other physical sites (example, office branches) act as spokes. The remote sites link to a central location while being separated from one another to guarantee confidentiality.

BringCom offers different service types as defined by MEF, the defining body for Carrier Ethernet:

  • E-Line
    • Ethernet Private Line (EPL)
    • Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL)

    • Access EPL
    • Access EVPL
  • E-Transit
    • Wholesale Transit Services
    • Transit E-Line
