Other benefits

  • Multiple VLANs: NGA Business provides an access Ethernet private line (Access-EPL) service that allows up to 4094 VLANs to be passed transparently from a customer’s premises to your network. These VLANs allow simple to complex wide area networks to be configured and managed efficiently by addressing issues such as scalability, security and network management.
