ISPs have for a long time been looking for an efficient and inexpensive, 4G back-up product, and a solution for remote endpoints on SDWAN and MPLS networks. Until now there has only been device-based layer 3 or VPN products to choose from. Jola is the first MVNO to offer a true layer 2 4G product designed specifically for ISPs.
Every ISP with L2TP infrastructure for fixed line broadband and Ethernet should be able to consume Jola’s L2TP mobile service, with no modification to their edge network.
Mobile L2TP gives the ISP full control over routing and IP addressing, facilitating the creation of fixed-line failover, pre-ethernet and stand-alone internet access services. Mobile L2TP gives ISPs access to all four UK mobile networks and 450 networks globally.
Adrian Sunderland, Jola’s CTO commented, “ISPs can now interconnect at layer 2 directly into the Jola eSIM MVNO platform in London (or any other AWS connected location in the world) – with the option of failover to a secondary location for the delivery of resilient services. The solution is inexpensive, reliable and relatively straightforward to set-up. With un-steered multi-network eSIMs, ISPs are not tied to any particular network and no longer need to do a site survey to determine the best signal – globally.”
