WANs: IP VPN & E-LAN

Private multi-site connectivity with WAN services

For IT leaders and network architects who need flexibility and scale, Zayo’s WAN services provide the benefits of a private multi-site network without the planning and operational staff overhead allowing for easy bandwidth changes and the flexibility to add new sites. Our modern MPLS network is offered to customers as two service types: a Layer 3 IP VPN service which can be augmented with managed routers, and a Layer 2 Managed Ethernet network service (E-LAN).

Flexible, customized, scalable bandwidth

Zayo’s WAN services are capable of handling diverse traffic types, giving you a reliable, secure, private network linking your sites. A Zayo WAN is easy to manage. You enjoy a flexible, customized, cost-effective solution that frees up internal resources to focus on your business, rather than the network it runs on.

As well as selling standard site-to-site WAN services, we can also create custom solutions that link sites, data centers, and Cloud on-ramps using a blend of WANs, Waves, and NNIs.

Highly available core network

Zayo proactively augments capacity on our MPLS core network as utilization increases, allowing for seamless switching around faults and flexible capacity changes. We also have redundant hardware at our PoPs, further improving failover protection.

High bandwidth, Cloud from anywhere

Zayo offers 100Gbps access speeds as standard across our WAN portfolio. Furthermore, a single WAN Cloud connection gives all of your connected sites Cloud access using our optional CloudLink service. 

Global reach

Zayo’s WAN services are available in more than 120 countries and territories. We use a blend of access capabilities from our owned fiber infrastructure in North America and Europe. Through our global connectivity partners, we can connect all of your sites worldwide with a rich and flexible choice of technologies.
