Internet2 Advanced Layer 2 Services
Internet2 Advanced Layer 2 Service Description
Internet2’s Advanced Layer 2 Service delivers a strategic advantage for leaders in research and education (R&E) by providing effective and efficient wide area 100 gigabit Ethernet technology. CIOs and IT staff can now provide a turnkey solution for balancing long-term or short-term global big data science collaborations and production services.
Enabling scalable and flexible global access to an open exchange network, members can build Layer 2 circuits (VLANs) between endpoints on the Internet2 Network and beyond. The service meets the wide-ranging needs of the research and education community—both now and into the future.
AL2S allows users to create their own VLANs on the Internet2 AL2S backbone. Static or Dynamic, point-to-point or multipoint, intra-domain or inter-domain, AL2S puts control of the backbone VLANs into the users’ hands for the creation of purpose-built private circuits using infrastructure already in place.
