Layer 2

Simplify network configuration to enhance and optimise resources, enabling increased efficiencies and elimination of bottlenecks.


What is Layer 2?

Layer 2 of a Managed WAN refers to the logical link-level connection layer in which routing devices establish communication channels with one another. Layer 2 is a packet-forwarding technology used for transferring data within networks such as Ethernet and wireless networks. This technology helps networks work efficiently and eliminates bottlenecks.

What are the benefits for organisations?

Layer 2 in a Managed WAN has several benefits for businesses and organisations. For example, this technology is capable of bypassing geographical restrictions, which can save businesses and organisations significant money by avoiding complex network configurations. Furthermore, the technology is cost effective and increases network performance. Layer 2 also ensures optimal resource utilisation. Lastly, Layer 2 also offers significant advantages over routing protocols when it comes to mobility, scalability and latency.
