LINX private VLAN services (pVLAN) are available to members on LON 1. Ports can be configured into pVLANs, for peering, and also to allow direct connection between members.
Both members have to have ports capable of supporting pVLAN, these are known as multi-service ports. Multi-service ports are charged at the same rate as regular ports, and there is a small charge to convert an existing regular port into a multi-service port. There is also a small charge for every pVLAN configuration.
- The service is semi – automated and members can configure pVLANs from the member portal.
- Using pVLAN allows members to access services directly from each other using the existing LINX infrastructure. This reduces the amount of infrastructure and cross connects needed by members.
