What V-IEPL Does:
V-IEPL dynamically connects your office locations to satellite offices in China as a single, private network utilizing CDS’ GPN and IEPL technologies. IEPL (International Ethernet Private Line) is offered by large telecom carriers to establish point-to-point international connectivity. Operating on the physical layer, it is a reliable and efficient way to offer connectivity between offices. Most importantly, it is not affected by China’s crackdown on VPNs.

Traditionally, IEPL was regarded as a ‘luxury’ IT solution reserved for large office campuses because of the high monthly cost and the last mile connectivity from the datacenter to offices. Until CDS developed V-IEPL, IEPL was not economical for smaller businesses or offices with a small IT budget. Leveraging CDS’ Global Interconnected Cloud platform (GIC), CDS can offer our Virtual IEPL (V-IEPL) solution as an end-to-end, fast-to-deploy solution providing multi-location, high-quality international connectivity at a mere fraction of the cost of traditional IEPL.
V-IEPL is a hybrid network combining the flexibility of VPN and the reliability of IEPL. Traffic travels from the office to a GIC datacenter by local VPN. Traffic entering CDS’ GIC datacenters then bypasses the public Internet and is transmitted via CDS’ Global Private Network (GPN) establishing a reliable and cost-effective international LAN.
