Asympto provides secure and high performance VLAN interconnections to multiple clouds like Microsoft Azure, Google Could Platform and Amazon Web Services from one physical connection. With Cloud Connect you get a private fast lane into the cloud while being able to scale connectivity quickly without additional physical connections or provisioning time. Cloud Connect is built with carrier-grade hardware offering 99.999%, fault tolerant architecture. Our hardware is installed and maintained within a secured area and monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Cloud Connect utilises safe and economical carrier Ethernet connectivity, commonly referred to as layer 2 or logical connectivity. Asympto ensures that every Cloud Connect implementation consists of dual platforms for redundancy installed in separate physical data centres where possible with separate power and cooling. Network services are also separate and utilise diverse entrance facilities.

  • Single physical connection to support multiple VLANs
  • Secure, SLA-based Layer-2 Connectivity
  • Speedy provisioning
  • Round the clock technical support
  • Low-latency and predictable, high-bandwidth
  • Redundancy options

When it comes to connecting to our Cloud Connect platform, Asympto has access to 600 plus Ethernet carriers through its presence in multiple data centers. So we can provide NNI to UNI circuits reaching the customer’s location. The connection is the Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) between a UNI (Subscriber) and a NNI (Services) Port. It must contain at least one EVPL between a UNI and NNI port but may include as many as possible per Cloud Connect platform port or domain as long as the subscribed bandwidth per port is not exceeded.

Each connection contains attributes that define parameters of the service.

  • S-VLAN: EVPL Identifier only used internally to the Cloud Connect platform. 
  • C-VLAN: IEEE 802.1Q VLAN Identified used to tag ingress and egress traffic for classification of traffic on an 802.1Q Trunk port. The C-VLAN will typically match on both sides of the EVPL. 
  • CIR: Committed Information Rate (or “Bandwidth”) is used to manage the rate of data across the EVPL service. 
  • UNI Port ID: This is the Subscriber Port Side (Origination) and is responsible for all fees related to the connection. 
  • NNI Port ID: This is the Services Port Side (Target). 
  • 100% CIR (Committed Information Rate)
