Private VLAN

Establish a simple, private connection between you and another LINX member on the same port you use to connect to our peering infrastructure.

LINX Private VLAN services (PVLAN) are available to members on the LON1 and LON2 networks in London and also at LINX Manchester and LINX NoVA in the US.

Ordering Your Port

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. 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.

 

If you are an existing member interested in ordering a pVLAN then you can either order a new port from LINX for the purpose (please state on the order that you wish to use the pVLAN service) or you can convert your existing port to support pVLAN.
