Service Overview

The Carrier Ethernet Backbone of HKNet SecureNet is certified by MEF CE 2.0 standard and based on PBB-TE technology, which offers a standardized platform for Layer 2 Connectivity service. SecureNet Ethernet provides integrated, efficient and reliable connectivity among customers’ networks in their data centers, local and overseas offices, and can be connected to the cloud seamlessly. Our network coverage spans across Asia, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, India, Cambodia and other major countries.

Network PoP

Currently our ethernet private line service (EPL service) has Point of Presence (PoP) at our data centers in Hong Kong, including NTT Communications Hong Kong Financial Data Center in Tseung Kwan O, Hong Kong Data Center in Tai Po and HKNet Data Center in Kwai Chung. We also have a network PoP in our partner data centers in Tsuen Wan, Chai Wan and Taiwan. We will proactively extend our network PoP and coverage to other regions to support clients’ expansion needs in Asia.

Network Topology

Two types of ethernet private line service (EPL service) are offered by HKNet SecureNet Ethernet, including e-Line (Point-to-Point) and e-LAN (full-mesh).

  • e-Line connects two customer Ethernet ports via a WAN.
  • e-LAN is a multipoint service connecting a set of customer endpoints, giving the appearance of a bridged Ethernet network connecting the sites.

All feature standardized definitions of specifications such as bandwidth, resilience and service multiplexing, allowing customers to compare service offerings and facilitating service level agreements (SLAs).
