Ethernet Private Line
Ethernet Private Line (EPL) is a Metro Ethernet service type defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum. It describes any E-Line Metro Ethernet service that does not permit service multiplexing at the Ethernet user-to-network interface (UNI).
Because E-Line services implement point-to-point Ethernet virtual connections (EVC), if both UNIs associated with point-to-point EVC implement an EPL service, any further connectivity requirements will require additional UNIs at one or both ends. This service is literally point-to-point.
