  • How does MPLS work?

    Claranet MPLS is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) Service available across Claranet’s international MPLS backbone. This solution provides Customers with a private network with any-to-any connectivity at IP layer 3 including Managed Routers. In addition, Customers can purchase Value Added Services such as Secure Internet Access through a managed Firewall located in one of Claranet's data centres.

  • How does QoS (Quality of Service) work?

    Quality of Service (QoS) is a data traffic classification and prioritisation feature available on most un-contended Claranet access services. It has two main functions; one is to identify and classify the IP data by application; the other is to prioritise certain application classes over others if the connectivity service becomes congested. Claranet offer up to six levels of application classification.

  • Why is IPv6 important?

    IPv6 was designed to succeed the existing IP addressing system of IPv4. Every device that connects to the internet requires a unique IP address. Under IPv4 the number of available addresses is running out. IPv6 resolves this issue by using a different addressing method that allows a greater number of addresses. IPv6 is set to become the standard addressing system of the internet, hence its importance.
