Alpheus Offers Ethernet over Local Area Network (E-LAN)

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alpheus Communications announced today the immediate availability of Ethernet-over-Local-Area-Network (E-LAN) as a new product offering. Ethernet has revolutionized communications technology over the last decade. Our new E-LAN products will allow customers to outsource the routing decisions of the customer’s WAN to Alpheus. Alpheus has simplified the service delivery by allowing the customer to order an E-LAN service with interface connections and bandwidth per location. The service provides customers with Multi-point to Multi-point connectivity. Cos/Qos is a feature of the product where customers can mark traffic based on P-bits or DSCP bits, and the Alpheus Network will prioritize across the network based on the markings set by the customer. “The best innovations are the ones that use technology to simplify – and E-LAN is one of those,” said Francisco Maella, Chief Operating Officer of Alpheus.

Chip Robertson, Sales Director for Alpheus, added “Our customers asked for E-LAN and we were able to design and provision it as a supported product within a very few months, so I feel great about our timing. Low-cost ubiquitous Ethernet solutions are what every IT director is looking for.” Existing customers should contact their Alpheus representative for a full product specification and pricing. New customers should contact Chip Robertson directly at (713) 336-6500.
