Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN

Securely connect sites with flexibility to manage your own data network.

Connect your corporate sites using our advanced Optus Evolve® network, enabling you to converge data, voice and application networks.

Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN provides cost effective, carrier grade, scalable data connectivity enabling multiple locations to be linked as a single network. This provides flexibility for those organisations looking to manage their own data network.

Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN uses layer 2 technology, often preferred by organisations with higher bandwidth requirements and that use complex network protocols.


A scalable national network - Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN uses Fibre and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology to provide coverage in and beyond major capital and regional cities.

Flexible network design - Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN doesn't depend on IP, so applications, services and protocols other than IP can be run across the network. And offices in multiple locations can be seen as a single LAN, enabling varied applications to run on the network without difficulties.

Customer control of layer 3 VPN - Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN gives you the capability to create, configure and manage and your own Layer 3 VPN, putting you in control.

Online reporting on service performance - Information and statistics on your access VLAN are available via our eCare web portal.

Optus Direct Link for AWS is available for direct connection to Amazon Web Services instead of connecting via the internet.

If you would prefer to connect your sites with an IP VPN, see Optus Evolve IP VPN.


Optus Evolve Ethernet WAN is a Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) based network which supports point to point, hub and spoke or fully meshed network design.

Unlike Layer 3 IP VPN Networks, you have the ability to create, configure and manage your own Layer 3 Network. Depending on the access type and bandwidth, you can run single or multiple Layer 3 IP VPNs across your sites. This enables you to manage, configure and operate your own IP VPN network and applications.
