Carrier Ethernet

TELUS’ Carrier Ethernet services are purpose-built for carriers looking to establish or expand their Canadian presence. Completely transparent to your customer traffic, our Carrier Ethernet network offers the features and flexibility you need to custom-architect your solutions.  We offer jumbo frame support for larger payloads, a full set of VLAN and traffic management options including oversubscription. TELUS' North American reach enables easy ENNI  connections, without any Canadian network presence requirements. TELUS can provide your customers with more cost-effective network topologies than other, less agile carriers - another unique feature.
