Data

The dramatic increase in demand, diversity and complexity of data services requires access to a knowledge base to guide and deliver the right solution set for your business.

As Lynx has evolved since 1996, we have seen our customers needs in data service require specialized support that cannot be justified within each business. We have the knowledge and experience to analyze, design, project manage and support the data network your business deserves and requires.

Below are some examples of data projects that have been implemented at Lynx:

Metro Ethernet

Metro Ethernet can connect business local area networks (LANs) and individual end users to a wide area network (WAN) or to the Internet. Corporations, academic institutions and government agencies in large cities can use Metro Ethernet to connect branch campuses or offices to an intranet. A typical Metro Ethernet system has a star network or mesh network topology with individual routers or servers interconnected through cable or fiber optic media.

MPLS

MPLS VPN is a family of methods for harnessing the power of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to create Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) on a private carrier backbone. MPLS is well suited to the task as it provides traffic isolation and differentiation without substantial overhead.
It is a highly scalable, protocol agnostic, data-carrying mechanism. In an MPLS network, data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. This allows one to create end-to-end circuits across any type of transport medium, using any protocol. The primary benefit is to eliminate dependence on a particular Data Link Layer technology, such as ATM, frame relay, SONET or Ethernet, and eliminate the need for multiple Layer 2 networks to satisfy different types of traffic. MPLS belongs to the family of packet-switched networks.
