Vodafone Ethernet Services

Optimising business-critical traffic with global connectivity


Vodafone Ethernet Services enable carriers to extend LANs nationally and across the world, providing high speed, low cost and low latency connectivity between sites and data centres. Vodafone’s Ethernet portfolio consists of Switched Ethernet and Dedicated Ethernet services.

Global Ethernet at a glance

High speed connectivity

Our Ethernet services include Switched Ethernet and Dedicated Ethernet, providing carriers high bandwidth connectivity between customer data centres or hub sites. This is often combined with a branch network that needs an IP-VPN. Switched Ethernet services EWL and E-VPN provide CoS (Class of Service) to support business applications, including voice and video.

Low latency dedicated Ethernet

For carriers with enterprise customers, such as banking or media organisations with latency-critical applications between major cities and data centres (e.g. bank trading), we offer Dedicated Ethernet.

Dedicated Ethernet provides the shortest-route transmission, uncontended bandwidth and latency assurance and no requirement for CoS.

Cost-effective LAN extension

Carriers can benefit from our cost-effective Ethernet services for fast and flexible bandwidth, and full control of IP routing to make rapid changes to support applications quickly.
