As a peer on our network, you have the option to establish a dedicated high-speed, point-to-point connection across our network with other peers, content providers or your own network. This connection called a Virtual Leased Line (VLL). IAA offers both local VLL connections and inter-capital connections (iVLLs).
IAA’s VLL service is:
- Scalable – allowing you to increase or decrease bandwidth as needed.
- Cost effective – utilising our existing network infrastructure to eliminate the need for costly traditional leased lines.
- Flexible – enabling you to quickly connect across local or national exchange points.
How does a Virtual Leased Line work?
VLL provides the means to communicate privately using a scalable and high-speed data network between other IX peers over a single physical provisioned Ethernet Interface of 10Gbps or higher, with 50% of your port speed reserved for your peering traffic.
A VLL allows for efficient data exchange, improved network performance and better control of your traffic flow. An example of the VLL advantage might be to ensure a high-quality, efficient and reliable content streaming experience for end users.
