TPG e-Line

TPG's e-Line is a highly transparent point-to-point Ethernet service, designed to link office locations or head offices with data centres or major facilities. This product provides complete flexibility for redundancy, resiliency and reliability.

TPG's point-to-point and point-to-multipoint offerings - connecting 2 or more geographic sites in a hub-and-spoke configuration - enables fast, secure and scalable Ethernet connectivity. The service allows for the efficient carriage of bulk data transfer such as SAN Replication and WAN back up.




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

Protocol transparency

Full transparency for any Layer 3 protocols to offer complete flexibility and legacy support.

Jumbo frames

Increased efficiency and reduced fragmentation with frames that carry up to 4 times more payload data.
