L2TP protocol : an optimised data flow management solution for MVNO Light

OWF proposes for operators without core network an evolution of the data escaping offer, to meet in particular the needs of fixed-mobile convergence and security.

With Orange Wholesale France’s Light MVNO offer, operators can provide their customers with voice/SMS/data packages, as well as data-only packages, particularly for the IoT sector. In addition, operators benefit from a solution for escaping their data to the PoP of their choice in France, thus giving them direct access and IP addressing to their customers’ network or to the Internet. This solution provides the best possible support for operators operating in both fixed and mobile sectors.

A secure end-to-end data escape solution
With the L2TP1 protocol, Orange Wholesale France provides its MVNOs a secure solution with end-to-end encryption, through high-level encryption and encapsulation2 . A secure tunnel is established between the Orange P-Gateway3 , which acts as a LAC4 , and the partner’s LNS5. The isolation and automation of the creation of L2TP flows thus brings gains in supervision and deployment.
