Global Carrier Ethernet (GCE) expands the functionality of a Carrier Ethernet service, delivering increased bandwidth flexibility, efficient use of interfaces, transparent transmission and high-quality transport.

GCE is a point-to-point, point-to-multipoint Ethernet service that supports multiple Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVC) on the same interface combined with bandwidth granularity. We deliver a highly customized experience with connections ranging from 50 Mbps to 100 Gbps.



Transparent transport level, layer 2 – ‘Pure’ Ethernet, multiple virtual circuits on the same interface and with dedicated and guaranteed bandwidth. Best granularity in point-to-point (E-LINE) and multipoint (E-LAN) services with bandwidths from 50 Mbps to 100 Gbps.

Value Proposition

Service based on state-of-the-art technology and with MEF 3.0 certification. It enables open and unrestricted access end to end, with a self-healing network. In addition, Telxius, the leader in capacity services in Latin America, is backed by the strength, reliability and soundness of the Telefónica Group.
