Fast track your business with high speed ethernet

Data traffic is increasing all the time.  Additional cloud workloads, new branch sites, collaboration tools and connected devices are putting more pressure on network performance and management.

Will your current network keep up with these new demands?

With National Ethernet you can add more bandwidth when it's required. You'll have the performance and coverage you need with the control and economy you want.

National Ethernet relies on Telstra's powerful Ethernet over fibre network. It gives you uncontended, highly available and low latency bandwidth on Australia's largest fibre network.

With our wider coverage, there's no need to have different providers to maintain your network availability. You also have the flexibility to connect your sites as one-to-one or one-to-many with redundancy options and can even set up a dual head-end topology.

Now you can ensure your applications perform at peak independently of your network provider. Access critical data in real-time. Move large workloads into public or private clouds with ease. All with the cost-efficiency of a Layer 2 solution.

You'll have full control. Choose from a range of speeds, Classes of Service, redundancy options and build your own MPLS network over Layer 2, using your Layer 3 devices to manage it.
