Telstra launches IPL, EPL and MPLS services in India

Telstra has launched its network services in India to deliver end-to-end network solutions to Indian customers.

The development follows Department of Telecommunications– Government of India’s approval of Telstra’s international gateways installed at Mumbai and Chennai.

Telstra was granted ILD (International Long Distance), NLD (National Long Distance) and ISP (Internet Service Provider) licenses in October 2011 and successfully launched Global IPVPN Services in India in March 2012.

Indian businesses can benefit from broader access to Telstra’s suite of advanced telecommunications solutions.

Telstra now offers International Private Line (IPL), Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) services from India.


The IPL service provides dedicated point-to-point links between two key business locations, ensuring security and reliability of voice, video and data communications. The service enables customers to control and manage their own networking routing, protocols and security.

The EPL service enables customers to expand their networks in small and cost-effective increments. Delivered over Telstra’s cable infrastructure using SDH technology, the global EPL service operates at the OSI model layer 2, enabling customers to retain control of their own networking routing and to manage their own security.


Telstra Global also offers customers a full suite of MPLS products such as Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL), IP Virtual Private Network (IPVPN) and Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) in India.


The network services will feature mesh network architecture, with Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and virtual PoPs in Pune and Kolkata. Both Mumbai and Chennai will act as dual international gateways out of India.
