Global Capacity Group (GCG, Booth 411) has introduced Global LAN, a true transparent LAN service using FastE or GigE network interfaces to provide an end-to-end Ethernet solution. Global LAN architecture uses existing TDM services and customer-owned equipment already in place to provide Ethernet in T1 increments.
It also enables multiple virtual LANs (VLANs) at each enterprise network interface. Each VLAN is capable of delivering bandwidths of up to 1gbps in 1mbps, 10mbps and 100mbps increments. Additionally, there is no need for a firewall or special security measures because Global LAN provides a completely transparent and secure Layer 2 bridge.
GCG said Global LAN eliminates the need for upfront capital investment in expensive new equipment; provides significant savings in recurring monthly telecom expenses when compared to a private-line or MPLS solution; and reduces the need for in-house telecom specialists by delivering Ethernet FastE or GigE network interfaces that enable IT personnel to create and scale WAN.
