Virtual network operator Sirocom today launched a UK-wide service to provide IP connectivity over Ethernet.

Enterprise VPN100 is scalable from two to 100 Mbps and is available immediately from over 118 access points around the UK.

The service is aimed at enterprises seeking an economic means to upgrade network access speeds or to revamp their network infrastructure architecture. This should help customers accommodate trends such as multi-site server consolidation or introduce storage area networking. According to the Sirocom pitch, companies get the flexibility and cost benefits of using IP VPN networks, but without compromising on security.

Metro Ethernet services are all the rage in the telcoms market. Sirocom's offering will compete against services from Fibernet, Colt and others for a share of the next-generation networking services market in the UK.

David Macfarlane, Sirocom's CTO, said: "This 'burstable' service is very flexible, fast and a fraction of the cost of traditional service types like ATM and frame relay."

Sirocom's Enterprise VPN100 service is underpinned by network capacity obtained from BT. The company claims 300 customers for its VPN services. ®
