MetroVLAN: Unrivaled connectivity options

E-Line within a metro region

At all DE-CIX exchanges except Dubai, Moscow, and the IXs in India, DE-CIX’s MetroVLAN service allows customers to exchange traffic privately. Connect to your desired counterpart in another data center or get connected to other DE-CIX customers that can provide transit for you. Or sell your services to other customers who are connected at one of the DE-CIX-enabled sites.

E-Line between metro regions

At our exchanges in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, New York, Marseille, and Istanbul, MetroVLAN Remote is available: with your access at one of these locations, you can connect via a VLAN to any other DE-CIX-enabled site at the other exchanges. In addition, MetroVLAN Remote is available between Frankfurt and Berlin, and Madrid and Lisbon.

What's E-Line: a virtual point-to-point private line

This Ethernet point-to-point service allows you to install one or multiple VLANs on your access and to get connected to other customers, regardless of which enabled site they have connected to the platform in. It’s like a virtual private line; within a metro region or even between metro regions.

E-LAN – a multipoint-to-multipoint connection
