Technical scheme of IPL 100G

International Private Line (IPL), a wavelength solution based on WDM/OTN networks

IPL is our reliable solution to carry high bandwidth between two distant locations. It relies on last generation WDM/OTN networks. Depending on the sites to be connected, IPL can adapt to different topologies and include either a terrestrial submarine portion, or both. IPL offers flexibility and can adapt to different types of interfaces (Ethernet, OTU, SDH).


Tailored protection options

IPL relies on point-to-point architecture. Sometimes, the service can be affected by exceptional circumstances such as fiber cut, fire or even fiber damage from mice. When your business needs are vital, you cannot allow service interruptions. Orange has three protection options: Protection 1+1, Dynamic Restoration and Extended Protection. These options are available on both WDM and OTN network. The new Dynamic Restoration and Extended Protection options are also available for 400G service. Find the one fitting your needs the best!
