Experience secure, scalable and cost-effective Ethernet multipoint connectivity with TPG's e-LAN. This solution allows geographically dispersed locations to easily interact and share business critical information, delivered over TPG's MPLS core network.




Each connection is given a unique encapsulation ID to create an ePipe that encapsulates all data and runs across TPG's private backbone.

High performance

Access speeds from 512K to 10Gbps (and higher in some locations), depending on Access technology and location.

Comprehensive reporting

Web-based reporting on availability, adherence to QoS profiles, latency, jitter and packet loss.

TPG's e-LAN provides:

  • The ability for you to completely manage your own routing schemes and CPE (Customer Premises Equipment)
  • The control and performance of a Layer 2 VLAN service. With meshed multipoint and secure networking at Layer 2, you can experience the increased performance that a non-routed network offers, coupled with maximum bandwidths of up to 10Gbps.
  • Quality of Service (QoS) options to ensure critical data is delivered within expected performance parameters. TPG's e-LAN is suitable for the most demanding enterprise requirements including voice and video conferencing applications.


TPG's e-LAN includes complete Layer 3 protocol transparency and is certified by the international Metro Ethernet Forum for compliance with their standards (MEF 9 and MEF 14 listed under TPG's subsidiary AAPT).


You can intelligently prioritise your traffic with 6 Classes of Service (CoS) available in 4 Quality of Service (QoS) packages:

  1. Best Effort (BE) Only: all traffic is carried in the Best Effort CoS
  2. Business Data (BD) Only: a simple business-grade CoS providing delivery assurance
  3. Simple QoS: Access to all 6 CoS, with a combination of pre-determined priority queuing and weighted round-robin traffic handling
  4. Flexible QoS: flexible customer defined bandwidth per CoS


Configuration Multipoint (full mesh)
Transport Technology MPLS Core with various Access technologies
Access Networks TPG Fibre (Fibre400/Fibre1000)
TPG Ethernet
Other Third Party Access
Bandwidth Flexible bandwidth options available ranging up to 10Gbps
Bandwidth will depend on the Access speed
Quality of Service (QoS) 6 Classes of Service (CoS) available in 4 Quality of Service (QoS) packages:
1. Best Effort: all traffic is carried within the Best Effort CoS
2. Business Data: all traffic is carried within the Assured Delivery CoS
3. Simple: Access to all 6 CoS minus the complexity of defining traffic contracts for each
4. Flexible: fully flexible customer defined traffic contract per CoS
QoS package is specified per site
Simple and flexible QoS packages require customers to mark traffic (802.1p or DSCP)
Multicast e-LAN services support Unicast, Broadcast and Multicast traffic.
MAC Learning Limit The maximum number of unique MAC addresses per e-LAN is 250
Ethernet Frame Size (MTU)1 Fast Ethernet interfaces: 1531 bytes
Gigabit Ethernet interfaces: 8960 bytes
10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces: 8960 bytes
VLAN Transparency1 Customer VLANs are supported transparently2
Protocol Transparency1 Layer 2/3 protocols are supported transparently3
Site Requirements Rack space (1RU) and 240V AC 50Hz power to be provided by the customer
Reporting Access Availability and Performance Reporting Optional per site QoS reporting
Provisioning Target TPG On-Net Infrastructure: 4-7 weeks from Date of Order Acceptance
MEF Certification MEF 2.0

1 Access network dependant
2 Where delivered via Ethernet Trunk Access the customer's equipment must support VLAN stacking
3 Where delivered via Ethernet Trunk Access the customer must tunnel Layer 2 control protocols
