Netia Ethernet Basic

The basic version of the service – a data link in the of the 2nd OSI layer (L2). An option dedicated to customers who need to connect L3 Routing Devices in different locations.

Netia Ethernet Advanced

The advanced version of the service – a data link in the of the 2nd OSI layer (L2) between two locations. This option ensures transmission of untagged traffic, an unlimited number of VLANs numbered in any way (QinQ feature) and – as a standard - MTU 1522 frames in L2. This service supports any type of traffic (broadcast, unicast and multicast).

The service’s topologies:

The Netia Ethernet service can be deployed in a variety of topologies depending on customer needs.

Point-to-Point topology

Point-to-Point topology is characterized by the fact that each physical port in the customer's branch has its equivalent in the form of a physical Ethernet port located at the company’s headquarters. These are independent Ethernet data transmission channels. Each of these channels may have different parameters and any type of service may be used to build them.

Point-to-Multipoint topology

Point-to-Multipoint topology is characterized by the fact that all physical ports from the company's branches converge on a single physical port at the customer’s central location, where each route is distinguished by an appropriate 802.1q tag (each route - from the point of view of the customer’s central location - has an appropriate VLAN number).

Advantages of Netia's solution

Nationwide network coverage

Available nationwide, Ethernet is a perfect solution for all customers.


Advanced connectivity without increased overheads or risk: costs up to 10 times less than traditional WAN solutions. An attractive price in case of higher capacities, low implementation costs per 1Mbps.

High bitrate service

You can ensure efficient communication between your Data Center and your headquarters, or else perform real-time data replication. The requested capacities in the second layer can range from 2 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s.
