NISS’s e-Line is a highly transparent point-to-point Ethernet service, designed to link office locations or head offices with data centres or major facilities. This product provides complete flexibility for redundancy, resiliency and reliability. NISS’s point-to-point and point-to-multipoint offerings – connecting 2 or more geographic sites in a hub-and-spoke configuration – enables fast, secure and scalable Ethernet connectivity. This allows for the efficient carriage of bulk data transfer such as SAN Replication and WAN back up.



Each connection is given a unique encapsulation ID
to create an ePipe that encapsulates all data and runs
across NISS’s upstream providers private backbone.

Protocol transparency

Full transparency for any Layer 3 protocols to offer
complete flexibility and legacy support.

Jumbo frames

Increased efficiency and reduced fragmentation with
frames that carry up to 4 times more payload data.

High performance

Access speeds from 512K to 10Gbps (and higher in some
locations), depending on Access technology and location.

Comprehensive reporting

Web-based reporting on availability, adherence to
QoS profiles, latency, jitter and packet loss.

Classes of Service

Available in performance configurations to suit various
applications including Standard, Business and Carrier.
