How You Can Use It
The Charter Business Layer 3 VPN Service is based on an underlying Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) platform. It allows you to:
- Simplify your network
- Lower your network operating costs
- Easily deploy applications across your network
- Choose your configuration: point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, or multipoint-to-multipoint
- For example, if you have several locations you can use this service to connect your branches to the headquarters for a unified voice and data network.
Provide your Business with:
- Metro and Long-Haul Connectivity
The Charter Business Layer 3 VPN Service allows you to link business locations within a metro area as well as offices dispersed across the country*. Metro and long-haul service is available wherever Charter Business offers service across the country.
With Charter Business, you can easily grow your traffic from 10Mbps up to 10Gbps as needed. You can also add other fiber locations to your network anywhere within the Charter footprint. As a Layer 3 service, you also have the ability to migrate voice, data, video and other traffic consolidated over one network over time.
- Control and Visibility
Charter Business Layer 3 VPN puts the visibility and routing control of your network into your hands which is particularly useful if you are running a network with more than two endpoints. Now you can control whether each endpoint is fully meshed or has restricted access and make changes as necessary through BGP routing. Also, because you can integrate voice, video and data traffic over one network, it gives you one point of control for multiple traffic types.
- Easy Integration
As a Layer 3 service, you can easily integrate this service with existing Layer 3 equipment via a standardized IEEE interface. Also, your applications that run at Layer 3 will be easily compatible with this service.
- Network Diversity
The Charter Network offers you the unique ability to create true physical diversity from other links you might have on your network, especially in metro areas. Since our network was built from the ground up it is often inherently physically diverse from traditional telecom providers, whose networks typically travel the same physical pathways.
