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 configuratio - enables fast, secure and scalable Ethernet connectivity. This 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.

High performance

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

Protocol transparency

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

Classes of Service

Available in performance configurations to suit various
applications including Standard, Business and Carrier.

Jumbo frames

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

Comprehensive reporting

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