According to reports, Tata-owned Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd (VSNL) has said that it is introducing the Ethernet service in the Indian market today, just four months after launching the service globally.

Ethernet is touted as a large, diverse family of frame-based computer networking technologies for local area networks (LANs). It is a part of a suite of managed network services from VSNL, spread over a large geographical area. Ethernet is a technology that provides the option of connectivity between two networks.

On this occasion, Arvind Mathur, Vice President - Global Product Management, VSNL, said that their Ethernet services would deliver an extensive domestic footprint connecting 120 major Indian cities to key business hubs across North America, Europe, and Asia. And it would be offered through group concern Tata Indicom Enterprise Business Unit (TIEBU).

Mathur said that the company hoped to receive clients from pharmaceutical, media, financial services, and manufacturing sectors.

In another move, VSNL has also become the first domestic Indian Ethernet service provider to achieve Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification.

The Iometrix test laboratory certified VSNL's Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service to be compliant with the international MEF 9 specification of the MEF, the pre-eminent industry organization dedicated to facilitating adoption of Ethernet services.

Mathur added that the offering uses an Ethernet over SDH/NOET platform, and complements VSNL's international dedicated global Ethernet and Ethernet over MPLS offerings.

The EPL service benefits customers with the power of choice through a large selection of scalable bandwidths. From standard Fast-E, to Gig-E interfaces that can be upgraded on a need basis without service interruption, VSNL's EPL is a reliable and scalable service that allows enterprises the flexibility to grow and adapt according to business demands.

According to Kevin Vachon, Chief Operating Officer, Metro Ethernet Forum, when an Ethernet service receives MEF certification, customers are assured that the service will be compliant with technical specifications established by the MEF. It is an honor to present VSNL with this critical recognition, and welcome them as the first Carrier Ethernet provider to receive MEF 9 certification for services provided in India, and verified to span the globe.
